Each July something very exciting happens at LCMM – the glassblowers arrive! From the beginning of July to the end of August, the fine folks at Orwell Glass set up shop on our campus in order to teach glassblowing to our visitors. For a small fee, anyone can learn to make ornaments & suncatchers that they can keep themselves! More advanced learners can try their hand at a glass tumbler.
Camille, one of the glassblowers with Orwell Glass, was kind enough to let our Video Production Camp film part of the process.
Eileen, one of our AmeriCorps members, also got to try their hand at glassblowing with Camille, and with a bit of help was able to make the ornament and suncatcher pictured below.
