Class Descriptions

Beginner Glass Blowing — Our longest, most hands-on entry-level class. Ideal for those interested in learning technique and the properties of glass.

Continuing Glass Blowing — Designed as a continuation of the Beginner Glass Blowing, this class allows students to practice what they learned while gaining further experience in the fundamentals of glass blowing.

Wine or Beer Glass — Learn the basic glass blowing skills to create your own colorful pint glass or stemless wine glass.

Flower Vase or Floppy Bowl — Learn the basic skills for making a beautiful, functional, one-of-a-kind ruffled “floppy” bowl or traditional flower vase.

Workshops — Make a work of art for every season! Workshops provide a one-hour, bite-sized taste of glass working. Each project is seasonal – Check out our winter ornaments, springtime flowers, and Halloween pumpkins, just to name a few!

Molten Hot Date Night — Turn the heat up on a Friday night by learning something new and exhilarating with your romantic partner. Afterward, reflect on the heat of the moment together with a complimentary (handmade) glass of wine and delectable cheese.

Private Parties — The best way to enjoy glass blowing is to rent out the whole studio with your friends! Private parties are surprisingly affordable, and unsurprisingly LOTS of fun. See pricing and more info here.

Private Lessons — Did you know we offer private, personalized, one-on-one glass blowing lessons? Email us at [email protected] or call (510) 778-1548 for more details.
