Getting started lampworking in New Jersey

Hi!

I just found this forum and was hoping someone out there could help me out! Ive just started looking into the world of glass blowing and Im very fascinated in it, especially lampwork. Im interested in learning how to making small pendants and jewelry type things but I do not have he first clue on how to get started. I live in South Jersey and have been searching for some classes or workshops in the jersey/ny/philly area. Is there anyone around this area that would know of a good place to look? Something that is only a 1 or 2 days class (I work full time so i would be unable to take long collage like class) Ive been searching for days but havent been able to find what im looking for. Any help or even suggestions on how to get started would be greatly appreciated!!

Andrea

There's a glass gallery in stone harbor, NJ that has info on formal artistic classes. Not sure about much else. I went to a head shop, made friends and asked around. They tend to know lots of boro lamp workers. Craft shows sometimes have lamp workers. If you ask around in places like those, you may find some leads on less expensive, one on one lessons.

You can also come to reading, pa and take classes at google works. They have several teachers of both lampwork and glass blowing. Reasonably priced and professional studios. Reading is not far from southern jersey.
