Traditional Ryukyu Glassblowing Lesson in Naha

Handicrafts PR Okinawa

Make your own gorgeous, wavy Ryukyu glass, a traditional handicraft from Okinawa. With the helpful assistance of an experienced craftsperson, you'll go through the steps together, including winding the molten glass around a metal pole, cooling the soft glass down to form a shape, blowing the glass, and shaping the bottom.

After you've completed your work, it'll be put in a lehr (temperature-controlled kiln) at 500°C (932°F) to cool down gradually. The next morning, you'll be able to take home your new, usable objet d'art!
