Creativity and Teambuilding Workshops

Espace VERRE offers the opportunity to live a unique experience that will remain engraved in the memory of the participants. Discover the intriguing world of glass and unleash your creative talents to experiment with a fascinating material or create a collective work of art!

If you are interested in trying one or more glass art techniques, we offer various options, specified to the needs of your group (friends, familiy or company), event and the availability of our studios. Your workshop can be combined with a guided tour.

Different formulas available on request:
• Beginning of the activity: Presentation of the school in the gallery-boutique and, if available, a demonstration
of glass blowing (15 minutes).
• Then, the participants will be initiated to one or two glass working techniques: kiln working and flameworking (45 minutes each activity).
In the kiln working, each participant will make a small object (such as a little bowl, plate, medallion). In the flameworking activity, the participants will create small beads in glass.
• Possibility to rent the gallery-boutique or the theoretical room with projector for private events, with or without glassblowing demonstrations.

At all times, at least one professional glass animator and, if needed, assistants are on hand to welcome and supervise the realization of the projects.

Cost : Plans starting at $ 60 + taxes per participant, for a duration of 2 h.
Minimum of 6 people per activity, 10 years and up:
Reservation: 3 weeks in advance according to our availability.

More information about the techniques:
1. Flameworking is a type of glasswork that uses a torch to melt and shape glass. Once the glass is
heated to a molten state, it is formed by shaping with tools and hand movements.
2. Kiln working is just that: glass formed in a kiln. Assembling together compatible glasses. Once
assembled as desired and heated in a kiln, the glasses soften, fuse together, and assume the shape
of whatever surface they’re resting upon or within, such as a flat kiln shelf, curved mold, or
casting mold.
