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 Between Two Options
- $79 for a blow-your-own-pumpkin class for one (up to a $160 value)

Students create their own pumpkins in this beginner-friendly class. Once it is hot enough, students color, mold, and blow the glass into a rotund gourd shape. An assistant then adds a stem to the final product. The piece can then be picked up the next day at the shop or shipped to most locations in the United States.
Half Moon Bay Art Glass
Formerly known as Colquhoun Glass Works, the seeds of Half Moon Bay Art Glass were sown in 1977 when artist Douglass Colquhoun Brown stepped off a tall ship in the English Channel. Discovering the art of etched glass in France, Brown became instantly smitten with the craft, and vowed to learn it upon his return to the states. After honing his skills creating scientific glassware for Silicon Valley, the artist expanded into more decorative objects such as jelly fish lamps, orchids, and seasonal glass pumpkins ideal for the jack-o-lantern-averse. Brown is eager to share his love for the fragile medium with others, leading glass-blowing classes suitable for first-timers of all ages, 13 and up.
