Au programme

You will learn the basics of lampworking AKA glassblowing. The main difference is glassblowing is done with a very large oven called a glory hole, while lampworking uses a torch. This is a 4-hour class and about 1 hour is spent training you on safety and techniques. This is split up throughout the experience. You will spend about a full 3 hours on the torch playing with molten glass. In the class, we can go over basic items like an implosion or a mushroom marble, pendants, glass ice cubes, and other more simple-to-make items. Glassblowing is freaking fun and amazing, but it is not easy at the start. Be warned, you may experience too much fun, melting glass in fire is just plain cool! Another project we have been working on to incorporate is trying to make a pipe with you for a small added cost. It takes a good amount of time to make one from scratch so we have pre-made pipe slugs you can pick from so we can whip it up and potentially add a marble you made to it in a timely fashion. The pre-made slugs do cost a little extra as it takes more labor, but you get a really cool extra special piece. With this added option the teacher will be the one making the pipe towards the end of the class if not after the class so all who still need help can get the help they need.

We use an ozone generator nightly to sanitize the work facility to ensure a healthy work zone

I am a self-taught glass artist that started nearly 15 years ago. We have a 14 station studio and 3 lathes. This is a working studio so there could be glassblowers working near you also. We make all the glass for the Silver Surfer Vaporizer and Elev8 Premier Glass that we sell worldwide. You will either be working with Sean H., Jeff E. or me, Steve:).

Had a great experience. Instructor was easy to understand and didn't waste time. Hands on learning style, instructor is always nearby, but sits back to gives plenty of space unless needed. Highly recommend you give it a try and have fun. Would love to go again sometime!

This is a great foray into glass art! You’ll learn some basic skills that will serve you should you want to dive deeper into glassworks. It’s hands-on basically from the start, and the friendly staff helps you as much or as little as you want. I would do this again!!

Fantastic experience, got plenty of instruction and help with our glass work. Also had plenty of time to just try things out and make multiple pieces. We would definitely do this again!

Really fun and unique experience. My husband and I both enjoyed learning how to work with the glass and torches, and the instructor and other artists working in the space were very friendly and helpful!
