$82 for a Glass-Casting Class ($165 Value)

Small groups of up to 20 enter the studio to learn the basic techniques of glass casting, culminating in the creation of one of three items: two paperweights, one twist-shaped and one flower-shaped; two heart-shaped paperweights; or two flower-shaped pieces. The items are annealed and cooled overnight, after which students return to grind their pieces, inscribe them with their signatures, and take them home. Classes begin at 9 a.m. Choose from the following dates and projects:

  • Saturday, May 11 (twists, flowers, or combination of both)
  • Saturday, May 18 (two hearts)
  • Saturday, May 25 (two flowers)
  • Saturday, June 1 (twists, flowers, or combination of both)
  • Saturday, June 8 (two hearts)
  • Saturday, June 15 (two flowers)


James is a great instructor with an impressive artistic background, and his apprentices are knowledgeable and willing to educate students.
