The Aquila Glass School started from simple beginnings exclusively as a fused-glass studio before launching its own glasswork curriculum. Beginning glasssmiths are welcomed with the Intro to Fusing class, which provides students with the instruction and materials necessary to create their own colorful glass artwork, such as colorful serving ware or detectives' accessories. At the beginning of each three-hour session, experienced teachers explain the basics of glasswork, including safety tactics and glass-cutting techniques, after which students get to produce six pieces of art—four glass pendants, a glass bowl, and one larger tray—that they can take home after about a week, once the glass hardens.

Intro to Beadmaking encourages guided experimentation with glass torches as students flame baubles under the watchful eye of experienced instructors. Different varieties of glass unveil their secrets as the class plays with consistency. Under the heat of the torch, molten glass shapes into round, square, triangle, and barrel beads, with students taking home about a dozen of their own creations once the material has hardened, about a week after the class. Reservations are required for classes; check the schedule for monthly offerings.
