The Beginning Glass Blowing Class is a great way to introduce yourself to the art of glass blowing. Our relaxed environment and highly experienced instructors will help you learn the basics of forming simple glass vessels.

Our Beginning Class teaches the fundamentals to work safely and confidently in the hot shop as you move from solid forms to blown glass. You'll learn the basics of tool usage, handling molten glass, and the art and science of a medium that dates back to Ancient Egypt.
