The night was so much fun! Only tip would be that it's quite warm in the studio with the flame going so it would be wise to wear light clothing.

This was super fun! I went with a friend and we really enjoyed it. Glassblowing and glass beadmaking would be a unique date idea!

My son and I participated in a class at Flo Glassblowing where we made a glass ball made with the colours of our choice. The glass offered just enough hands on opportunities for the first time experience for when it's a new and totally unlike any experience we've ever had before. The gal that was instructing was so engaging with our group and even showed us at the end of the class another item that could be made in another class offered at Flo, and how anyone could do it. We both had a wonderful time, and look forward to our new experience when we sign up for our next class at Flo Glassblowing.

My friend and I ended up with 4 beautiful beads each and a greater appreciation of how the beads are made. Great fun and great birthday present for friends.

From Our Editors

After moving to town in 2005, glass artisan Melody Jewitt was renting studio time in Merrickville, Ontario. While at work, the Sheridan Institute–trained craftswoman discovered a kindred glassblowing spirit in the studio's owner, Bronwen McKnight, who has since retired. The two forged a friendship and artistic alliance that eventually became a business venture as well—their Ottawa studio dubbed Flo Glassblowing. The women used the studio to produce new work, continue their ongoing experiments with glass catcher's-mitt prototypes, and showcase their best designs. They also offer visitors a variety of workshops tailored to all ages, in which they reveal the secrets of flameworking, fusing, and casting that enable students to execute their own small glass pieces. In addition to the workshops, the studio creates a wide variety of custom glass blown products.
