Students learn techniques for forming glass and creating colors as they create their own free-form piece. Classes are held on weekdays at 6 p.m. and on 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays, though the schedule may vary from week to week. Students can pick up their project 72 hours after class. Pieces that are not picked up after 90 days become the property of the studio.

Peter Patterson Glassworks

Though glass art has been Peter Patterson’s career for more than 35 years, glimpses of his other passions come through in his pieces, from his knowledge of plants to his scuba explorations of exotic seascapes. Indeed, he shapes searing-hot glass with the same fluidity as water, drawing on lessons from master teachers and his own background as an illustrator. The forms often flow around pre-fused decorations and even phosphorous elements that glow in the dark and ensure that the studio is entirely boogeyman-free. Students work one on one or in small classes as Patterson shares the first steps of creating his complex sea forms, memorial urns, and incandescent light bulbs.

Afterward, students may purchase this demo piece along with memorial keepsakes and incandescent light bulbs at a discount in the gallery.
