Very informative on the basics of glass blowing. It's pretty cool doing the hands on portion when you get to create your glass piece. Make sure you listen to what they say so you won't get burned

The experience is great, but you will not be working with glass for the full three hours. It takes that long for everyone to do their own project - one at a time. But, there is some benefit to watching everyone so you can feel more confident when it's your turn. It was a great experience!

I thought it was interesting that they sent out a note outlining expectations of attire and that you would be turned away if not compliant (eg. they wanted you to wear long sleeve, cotton shirts) but there were at least 3 people who were short-sleeved and were admitted. No biggie --- it's just that the notice sounded so intentional and not subject to deviation. Might have been better to have just offered the attire as "highly suggested" instead of so commanding.

From Our Editors

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. At the end of class, students observe as Patterson creates his complex sea-form vase. Afterward, students may purchase this demo piece along with memorial keepsakes and incandescent light bulbs at a discount in the gallery.
