Glassblowing

しのとフランス2.jpg

Make your own one-of-a-kind glass piece with taffy-like melted glass from the scorching hot pot furnace. Chose the shape, color, and design when you sign up. Hear about how to use the tools and then you’re ready to start. It takes about 20 minutes – full of excitement and fun!灼
Blow into the red-hot molten glass and it balloons out – that’s a very fun moment. Anyone three years old and up can join this workshop. Our kind staff will help you, so everyone from little children to seniors can enjoy the experience safely.
Experience a world far from your usual daily life at our studio in the midst of lush nature… the roaring, scorching furnace, the tools you’ve never used before, the soft, red-hot glass…. The glass piece you blow with your own breath will surely become a much-loved drinking glass you can’t do without!

Sandblasting

For your sandblasting experience, you will sandblast an original illustration or letters on a pre-made item. Copy the illustration or letters you want on the sticker on the glass, then use a cutter knife to cut away the places you want the glass to be clouded. Etch the glass with the sandblaster, and you’ve made a lovely piece that is full of memories. For little children who can’t use a cutter knife yet, we have arranged designs that can be made by combining different stickers instead. It’s so easy to make an original glass piece!
We recommend this workshop to make a memento of your trip, a record of a child’s growth, or as a present on a special day.
