Beginners will start their glassblowing experience making paperweights; choosing your own shapes, colors, and styles. Once your creations have cooled down overnight, they can be picked up or can be shipped to you the following day (shipping cost is not included).


After you complete your first class, you can choose from a variety of more advanced projects and lessons. Classes can be scheduled via e-mail or over the phone. Availability varies and classes typically fill up at least 4 months in advance and even farther out on weekends.
