Glass Blowing Classes

Beginner Instructional Class:  $25 per hour – per student, class generally will last 2-3 hours. Maximum of 2 students per class.    Try your hand at hot glassblowing. Turn molten glass on a pipe and use tools, heat, gravity, and air pressure to transform it into your own work of art.   In this class you’ll get familiar with the Studio equipment and tools.  You may take home everything you create.***

Ornament Making:  $20 per ornament which generally takes 20-30 minutes per ornament.  Maximum of 6 students per class.  In this class we will help you create your own ornament to take home.***

  • Additional ornaments can be made for only $15 each!

***All items are made with clear glass – no color.  Items will require a 24 hour cool down period before you can take them home.  You may stop out the next day to pick up your creations or we will ship them to you.
