Glassblowing for beginners through advanced students!
Glasslight offers hands on experience with full-size equipment and furnaces to teach this
centuries-old art form. Students receive one-on-one attention with a master craftsman in intimate classes of 4-8 students. Please see the FAQ for further information.
To schedule your class, please contact us here. We are happy to answer any and all questions!
When are classes offered?
Classes are offered in the Fall through Spring seasons on weekends, either Saturday or Sunday
depending on availability. You may see our schedule here.
How large are classes?
A typical class size is 4-8 students.
What time are classes and how long do they last?
Classes are offered from 9am to 5pm. A lunch break is taken but lunch is not provided.
What does a typical class involve for a first timer?
For beginners, the day starts with an introduction to the equipment, procedures, and safety rules.
Students then rotate working one-on-one with the instructor. During the course of the day, each
student will have 3-4 opportunities to blow a piece. The first piece will be clear glass and the
instructor will take each student through all the basic steps to create a finished piece. In the
second piece, color will be introduced. Students may then choose what to work on for their third
piece. If enough time remains, a fourth piece may be blown.
What can I make?
Generally students create cups, vases, bowls and paperweights. During the holiday season,
Glasslight offers ornament classes. Please see below for more information.
What and when are ornament classes?
During the holiday season, Glasslight offers ornament classes. They are typically held in
November and December. During these classes students create on average between 8 and 12
Christmas balls. Students work in teams to learn the various aspects of creating an ornament.
Ornaments make lovely gifts though few people can bear to part with them!
Do I get to keep what I make? When can I take it home?
All blown pieces must remain in our annealing oven for 48 hours before they may be picked up.
For those who are traveling for the class, we can ship pieces, though the cost of shipping is not
included in the class price.
Are there any age restrictions?
Students under the age of 18 must obtain pre-authorization.
How much do classes cost?
