$125 for a Half-Day Introductory Glass-Blowing Class ($250 Value)

In these three-student classes, a master glass blower teaches the intricate glasswork required to create paperweights during a hands-on session that lasts four to five hours. All materials are provided, and participants will be able to take home their finished pieces the next day. Students will mold, shape, and otherwise manipulate glass in this class. They will learn the foundations of proper glass blowing, which is the process of either breathing empty space into baubles or cleaning up curio cabinets with a leaf blower.

Aurora Borealis Glassworks

As glass master Dale Chihuly once said, "Glass is the most magic of all materials." Aurora Borealis Glassworks' resident artists and instructors gather molten glass, glowing and viscous at a blistering 2,200 degrees, onto the end of stainless-steel pipes, working quickly to transform amorphous blobs into colorful, solid shapes. Sharing the delicate art form with others, the team teaches techniques ranging from basic paperweight creation to more advanced blown shapes, working closely with students to create glass flowers, layered beads, and realistic replacement jaws for terrible boxers.
