- $142 for a three-hour glassblowing class for two (a $270 value)
After a tour of the equipment used in the glass blowing process and a thorough demonstration explaining the process (a $70 value), instructors help pairs blow a delicate ornament from colorful puddles of molten glass during a couples session (a $150 value). Supplies and materials are included (a $25 value per person), and Groupon-holders also get an extra 10% off on the day of their class for any retail purchases of vases, lighting, and other glass artwork sold in the studio's gallery.
Internationally exhibited mixed-media artist Ember Cheney mans the artistic fires at SoulShine Arts. Inside her studio, she sculpts colorful molten glass into lighting, jewelry, and vases—sold in an attached gallery and retail space—and teaches students of all skill levels to do the same during glassblowing classes.
