From gathering from the furnace to shaping with hand-tools, this class is a great overview of the art of glassblowing. Students will watch a demonstration by the instructor and then break into teams to work on their own work every night. This extended class is a great way to build up skills and retain working knowledge of the material.

Intermediate Glassblowing | $375
This class is designed to build upon the fundamentals. Think you got gathering down and understand the basics? This class will drive you in the right direction of working faster, hotter, and crispier. Some glassblowing experience is required.

If you do not see that a class has filled on this page, the class still has spaces available. But with small sizes of four, classes do fill quickly. Fall classes will be added in early April.
Saturdays and Sundays from 9am - 4:30pm
Introduction to cold-working workshop | $100
A piece of glass created in the hotshop is rarely a finished piece. It may not sit flat, it may need a hole drilled for a lighting component, or it may just need a bit more design etched into it. The coldshop is the place to finish the glass. This day-long course will run through the wet saw, flat lap, belt sander, and wet drill, as well as some other tools that can turn your blown glass into finished art. This course is also required for coldshop rental.
