glass blowing workshop 01.

my department has organized a glass blowing workshop: today we had the first studio session. I had never worked with glass before: it was extremely interesting and pleasant to be in the glass studio with my friends. I decided to take some photographs to document each session - today I have taken many!
my 8 favourite shots from today:

✻ I will upload 8 photos every time.
today I have learnt how to gather the glass onto the pipe - which isn't as easy as it seems.
I am looking forward to the next studio session - next thursday!
