Glassblowing at Local Studio

On Thursday, Mr. Bob Johnson organized a day-long visit to Terrapin Glassblowing Studios in nearby Jaffrey, NH. Under direction of studio staff, students learned the basics of glassblowing and each had the opportunity to create glass flowers, decorative glass bulbs, and a glass container. While the Academy does offer classes in glass, we do not have a glassblowing facility. “We always want to expose our students to as many art forms as possible, so this dedicated time at Terrapin’s studios was a great opportunity for our students,” said Mr. Johnson. He hopes to take another group and their creative spirit this spring.
