Students will make a float or ornament. During the introductory mini class, instructors gather hot glass onto a pipe, allowing pupils to add their choice of color from a predetermined selection. Then students heat the substances together in the glory hole and shape their piece on a block, all while blowing out the molten mixture with the help of another student. After the student detaches the piece from the pipe, teachers finish it with an ornament loop or float top. Classes last between 1.5 and 2 hours, depending on size—see the schedule here.

Redmond School of Glass

For sand to turn into glass, something must heat it to more than 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit—something like a meteor crashing into the earth, a volcano erupting, or lightning striking a beach. At Redmond School of Glass, which is now under new ownership, a team of instructors with 10+ years of experience take care of the heating part, dipping into a chamber for dollops of molten glass that students turn into pieces of art. They lead one-time sessions as well as six-week courses—which maintain a student-teacher ratio of 2:1—imparting their expertise through projects that involve crafting ornaments, vases, and dishes. And they've stocked their studio with all the necessary tools, such as wooden blocks for shaping and jacks for cutting, to help make the art of glass blowing more accessible to the community. The area's world-renowned scene claims sculptor Dale Chihuly, the Pilchuck Glass School, and the Museum of Glass; so definitive is glass, in fact, that four out of the last five mayors were made of it.
