IMPORTANT COVID UPDATE

We are working on changes to create the safest space possible when re-opening our studio to the public.

Classes will now be staggered to allow only 2 people in the studio at a time.* These two-hour classes normally accommodate six people, so instead of all six students coming at 1pm for the full 2 hours, we will be hosting up to 2 people every 30-ish minutes.

In addition, we have devised a new rigorous sanitation regimen to keep both you and our team safe. Please note classes will involve sculpting only until we can safely remove face masks long enough to use blow pipes. If you have any questions or concerns prior to your class, feel free to email Krista at [email protected]

* If you have a group of more than 2, that’s fine! Just register for however many slots you need, and plan to all arrive at the same time. You may take your class together if you are already in contact.

Our Personal Protection Plan

Glass Classes and Workshops

Give the gift of glass! Online gift cards available here.

BEGINNER GLASS BLOWING (sculpting only)
Our longest, most hands-on entry-level class. Ideal for those interested in learning technique and the properties of glass.

SAND CASTING *New!*
Press or draw your own design into sand, then we’ll pour over molten glass to create an embossed panel of glass art. Use a hand (or paw) print, a memento, or draw in the sand.

SCULPTURE WORKSHOP (anything goes)
Workshops provide a short, bite-sized taste of glass working. Our Workshops are typically seasonal, but since current events kept us from hosting classes most of the year, we are offering all our seasonal sculpting options at once! Check out our Valentine hearts, springtime flowers, and Halloween pumpkins, just to name a few!

WINTER WORKSHOPS (Snowman or Icicle)
Workshops provide a short, bite-sized taste of glass working. To celebrate winter, join us to make your own solid Snowman sculpture or a sparkling solid Icicle ornament!

WINE or BEER GLASS (postponed)
Learn the basic glass blowing skills to create your own colorful pint glass or stemless wine glass.

CONTINUING GLASS BLOWING (postponed)
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.

FLOWER VASE or FLOPPY BOWL (postponed)
Learn the basic skills for making a beautiful, functional, one-of-a-kind ruffled “floppy” bowl or traditional flower vase.

MOLTEN HOT DATE NIGHT (postponed)
Turn the heat up on a Friday night by learning something new and hot 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.
