What Is A Lesson Like?

The beginner glass blowing lesson is designed for those with no experience on a torch. We use a bench mounted torch for our glass shop. Donald will do a demonstration explaining the steps . When  it's your turn, Donald is hands on with you to help guide you through the steps. This is a really fun and exciting class! Check out our videos and photos to see a peek into a lesson!

What Kind Of Glass Are We Using?

We use Borosilicate glass in our shop. Our glass is hard glass like Pyrex glass used for baking. We use a bench mounted torch for our glassblowing lessons. Our torches run about 3,000℉ and the glass melts at around 2,200℉.

Do I Get To Take My Glass Home After Class?

It depends on what you make! Some things we make, like the lady bugs in your first class, can be bench cooled and they are cool to the touch in about 8 minutes so those go home with you. For other glass items like marbles or larger glass, we have to put it in the kiln to anneal. For those items, you can pick them up the next day! You do keep everything you make in the shop! Be proud of your glass!
