Our paperweight-making class is a good place to start learning the basics of glass blowing. This 4-5 hour class is typically one-on-one instruction, but on request, we will take couples. This is a hands-on class and students will make 4-6 pieces, which are theirs to keep. After the pieces have annealed overnight, the student comes back to do cold work (grinding). Working in a Hot Shop is a unique and rare experience. Come and have fun with us. We play with lava!
