What you'll do

Experience the excitement of glass in motion. Learn to blow your own ornament, paperweight, float or bowl. We teach from ages 6 & up and can accommodate large groups. It is truly a one in a life time experience.
Each class begins with a short tour of the hotshop, we will explain all of the equipment, why its used and how you will use it that day.
We will then let you have a little play with some hot glass so you can feel the medium and how it works.
We will then demo what you would like to make and one of our instructors will help you create your glass piece.
Once you have created your piece it will go into a kiln overnight to cool down slowly, so you will have to come pick up the following days or we can ship it to you at cost.

I strongly recommend this experience! Ciara is so friendly and knowledgeable, and clearly has a passion for what she does. She explains everything really well and makes creating your own piece enjoyable and easy rather than overwhelming like it could be.

Ciara was very welcoming, friendly, and knowledgable. She walked us through the process and was encouraging. She gave us tips on what to do in Eugene as well! Definitely worth the money!
