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:).

This experience was nothing short of awesome! We had Danny as an instructor and his knowledge of the craft and passion is evident! He was hands on, explanatory and an overall great teacher! We made quite a few projects once learning the basics and left the studio with a base level understanding of glassblowing. Nothing short of a great time!!

This was an amazing experience! We all had so much fun! Our host brings a very fun, energetic vibe to the class and he was extremely knowledgable. We will definitely do this again next time we are in the springs!

Super fun and Nick was great! We had zero experience and he was patient, knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and worked hard to make sure we were getting a feel for the glass. We left with several keepsakes we’re proud of :-)

Such a fun experience and a great addition to our vacation in Colorado. Nick was great with his instruction and ability to explain things in different ways for everyone to understand. We will definitely be back next time we are in Colorado Springs.

Nick was such a cool guy and very hands on with his teaching, he did an qmazi g job explaining and offering advice when struggling. Also a very hospitable group of people. 10/10 WILL do again

We had a wonderful experience. I was a little nervous as I didn’t know what to expect, but Danny was very accommodating and patient. Our 13 year old son took right to it! Danny helped guide us without taking over. We were very surprised at how quickly the time passed while we were creating. It’s definitely an experience that we would recommend! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
