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.

$149 for a Glass-Paperweight-Making Class for Two ($280 Value)

In three-hour sessions, a knowledgeable instructor demonstrates basic techniques before students manipulate their own glass globs into up to four paperweights using the provided tools and materials. After class, the staff saws and polishes the projects so that they will be ready for pickup in five days. Dates and times for the class vary. Call ahead for a schedule.

Sonoran Glass School

Sonoran Glass School may sound like a Hollywood stuntman school, since students are encouraged to play with glass, flame, and saws. However, their in-depth glass-working classes teach pupils how to create delicate objets d'art under the watchful eye of a host of experienced instructors. Torchworking classes teach pupils how to shape their own paperweights and vases out of molten glass, and facet-cutting courses let students create mosaics depicting abstract designs or themselves making mosaics of abstract designs. Kids' and adult classes offer age-appropriate instruction, and an 10-student class cap for most courses ensures plenty of one-on-one time with the teacher.
