One thing I've always wanted to do, but never tried, is working with glass. I've been to watch glass blowers create their masterpieces a number of times, and every time, I want to learn how to do it.
I know I would probably get frustrated by it. I'm not a particularly great crafter although I have tried a lot of different things. Over the years I've done a lot of jewelry making, starting with beads and moving into precious metal casting and basic jewelry techniques. I'd love to learn to work with glass so I could incorporate my own beads or other glass objects into jewelry.
I love the transparency of glass and the way it can be colored subtly or vibrantly, made opaque or clear. There is such diversity of objects that can be made with glass. Not just vases and drinking vessels, but windows and sculptures and in numerous other things. I have beautiful stained glass panels in my living room windows and I'd love to be able to make my own for other rooms in the house. I love the way the sunlight beams those colors on the opposite wall when the sun is in the right position.
Have you ever thought about working with glass? Or had any other dream hobby you've never attempted?
