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 today's Groupon.
- $35 for glass-blown-ornament-making class ($70 Value)
During each 20-minute session, pupils choose their preferred color of molten glass and load it into the blowpipe, shaping it into a seasonal decoration to take home or share with others. Participants should wear cotton clothing and closed-toed shoes and should arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of class. Ornaments will be available for pickup at a later date, as they must cool in the kiln; items can be shipped for an additional $6. Before calling to make a reservation, see the available dates here.
