Over the weekend I took another glassblowing workshop. And it's official, I want to take a real class.
First I thought one of these workshops might satisfy my desire to work with glass. And when they didn't I thought if I took a few more they might show me that working with glass wasn't as glamorous as I thought it might be. Perhaps the workshops would expose something I really didn't like or would scare me into not wanting to work with dangerous 2,000 degree molten globs.
But these workshops have only had the opposite effect, making me want to learn to work with glass more.
There are lots of reason not to- it's expensive, can be dangerous, the equipment (and even a place to learn) isn't all that readily available.
