About our Classes and FAQ

The Glass Experiences will accommodate participants of all skill levels, from first-timers to experienced glassblowers.

Over the course of just one hour, the instructor will assist you one-on-one in making a glass tumbler, vase, or other decorative item. You’ll roll the glass in the color(s) of your choice, blow into the pipe, help shape your piece, and walk away with your own, one-of-a-kind creation.

You can easily share the experience with others by booking multiple hours – the instructor will first cover the basic procedures and safety information with the whole group, then assist each person with their creation. If you’re planning on coming with a friend or group, click here. Interested in our Saturday Date Night? Click here.

Your completed piece needs to cool down overnight in the oven to prevent cracking, and therefore won’t be available for pickup until the following morning starting at 10am, and until 5pm. ***If your Glass Experience is on a Saturday, you will need to pick up your piece on the following Tuesday, since our office and studio are not open on Mondays. While we do require local pickup, we understand that circumstances may prevent that from being possible for you. Please let us know if you would not be able to pick up your completed piece in person, and we can make arrangements for shipping as needed, for an additional fee.

Our community’s safety is our top priority. 

Prior to starting class, instructors will give a full explanation and tour of the studio equipment and how it functions. Safety glasses will be provided to students. We ask that all students wear face masks while working in the studio; the instructors will do so as well. All instructors are fully vaccinated. 

Please be on-time for your scheduled appointment. Tardiness will impact the rest of the glassblowing studio schedule, and if you are any later than 15 minutes, we cannot refund your money, nor guarantee the ability produce a piece in the allotted time. 

Cost: $75 per person
