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. Click here to learn more about sandcasting.
♦ Fun With Fusing: This class is for ages 5+ (due to broken glass being a material used) and can be lots of fun for adults, too! This alternative style of glassmaking involves layering sheets of glass to construct your design. Once assembled, your instructor will place inside of a kiln to fuse overnight. Final projects can be “2D” such as magnets, pet portraits or jewelry or 3D items such as spoon rests or hanging mobiles. Click here to learn more about glass fusing.
♦ 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. Click here to learn more about our private lessons. ($350/session)
♦ PRIVATE WORKSHOPS: Groups of 6 or more can book a private workshop in the style of our Taste of Glassblowing classes. Click here to learn more about our private workshops. ($75/person)
♦ 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. Click here to learn more about our multi-week courses. ($600/four 4-hr sessions. 16hrs total.)
