We offer a variety of classes and workshops for all skill levels. Our class formats have been designed with careful consideration of your safety, what makes a fun experience and a realistic understanding of what is achievable with little to no experience.
♦ SAND CASTING: This class is one of our family-friendly offerings but it is loads of fun for adults, too! Learn all about glass casting in this workshop where you will make a “negative” impression in sand using all sorts of toys, letters, and critters. Then watch as your instructors ladle molten glass into the void to create a unique glass tile or sculpture for you to keep.
♦ FUN WITH FUSING: Tap into your arts and crafts side with this family-friendly workshop. Cut and arrange long strands, small chunks and shards of glass into a wide range of decorative and functional pieces. Working on a flat canvas, your design can be abstract, literal or anything in between. Afterwards, your construction will go into the kiln to melt into one unified piece. From magnets to jewelry to small dishes, this workshop is a great way to start your own DIY art glass collection.
♦ TASTE OF GLASSBLOWING: This is our “crash course” to check glassblowing off of your bucketlist. You’ll be paired with an experienced instructor for 20 minutes who will acquaint you with the studio, teach you about the material and guide you through making a small souvenir of your own.
♦ PRIVATE LESSONS: For a more in-depth lesson in glassmaking, 1-2 participants can engage in a private lesson for 2 hours. Your instructor will still help you with the fundamentals but don’t expect her to make the piece for you. Your skills or lack-there-of will be on display so we encourage you to work within some manageable boundaries.
♦ PRIVATE WORKSHOPS: Groups of 8 or more can book a private workshop in the style of our Taste of Glassblowing classes.
♦ MULTI-WEEK COURSE: Those seeking complete independence in glassmaking should jump right into our multi-week courses. These classes start from square one and build you towards renting our studio equipment to practice or make your own work, independent of an instructor. Glassmaking takes years to master so don’t expect to be cranking out masterpieces in your first few months.
