Glass Blowing Classes

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

Glass Blowing Basics Instructional Class:  (No experience needed!)      Try your hand at hot glassblowing. Turn molten glass on a pipe, use tools, heat, gravity, and air pressure to transform the glass 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.

$25 per hour, per student.  Class generally will last 2-3 hours. Maximum of 2 students per class.***

***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.  Addition of color requires additional cost.
