3 Hour Beginning Glass Blowing – Saturdays from 9am-12pm

This class is for the curious and is limited to three students, ensuring each person has plenty of bench and furnace time. In this three hour class students will learn the basic rules of safety, how to get glass out of the furnace, apply color, make a paperweight, ornament, and a cup. It’s entirely hands on and a lot of fun!

If you are an individual, we can place you in a class with others. If you would like to bring a group, discounts are available for 4 or more. There is an age minimum of 14 or older. Please contact us for pricing and to check for availability.

Private Lessons – 1 Individual

One-on-one instruction is available. This can be for your very first class or if you have some experience and would like to focus on a certain aspect of blowing glass.

Team Building Events

Let us customize a team building event for your group.

 

Series of Classes:

Beginning Glass Blowing: Over the course of 6 weeks, meeting once a week in the evening, students will get a foundation on how to blow glass. The first three weeks are dedicated to the fundamentals. The last three weeks are all about what each student would like to focus on. The class is limited to four students in order to ensure plenty of bench time and it allows the group to learn how to work as a team.  Please contact Glass Blowing Austin for more information such as dates, pricing and how to sign up.

Intermediate Glass Blowing (New!)

If you’ve had some past experience this class could be perfect for you.  Local glass artist Joe Hobbs will be teaching a more advance class in the spring.  The class will be 4 weeks long, in the evenings, and 4 hours each night.
