Glass can be exquisite in its myriad forms, from the ornate windows of a Gothic cathedral to the crystalline webbing of a freshly vandalized windshield. Reflect on beauty with this Groupon.

Choose from Three Options

  • $89 for a shape-a-floppy-bowl glass-blowing class for one (a $180 value)
  • $89 for a glass-bead-making class for one (a $180 value)
  • $89 for a glass-making experience for four (a $200 value)

The glass-bowl-making class introduces students to hot-glass-crafting techniques in a safe environment. After students turn and shape molten glass, bowls cool for a few days in an annealing oven before they're ready to be filled with colored pebbles or Fruity Pebbles. The glass-bead-making-class teaches participants the techniques needed to make decorative round beads. Alternatively, during a four-person class, quartets learn to safely cut glass as they fuse plates, sun catchers, or coasters using colored flat glass.

Bay Area Glass Institute

The nonprofit Bay Area Glass Institute supports glass arts in its community by providing affordable studio space for artists, holding events and exhibits of local work, and teaching basic classes. Students create delicate glass art using cold techniques or acquire the basics of glass blowing as they rotate molten glass at 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit to make bowls, vases, and flowers. A store on the premises sells elegant and innovative work by the local glass artists affiliated with the institute.
