Incredible and unique opportunity. This was a rare opportunity to see a true craftsman AND Artist at work, while having him patiently and cheerfully guide us through creating blown glass ourselves. It was such a pleasure to get to enjoy his 30+ years of experience as an artist, because he was such great teacher.

Great experience. The instructor was informative, helpful, and passonite about his work. He enables you to do everything on your own with instruction and allows you to really get A feel of what this art is all about. I would most certainly return for a more advanced class

Great experience! Saul is super nice and an excellent teacher. We chose from 4 different projects and Saul went through the whole procedure once while making a sample and he then walked us individually through each step as we made our project. You do have to wait until next day to pick up your project since it has to cool, but no problem for us. This is also a great gift idea for an artistic person in your life. I highly recommend this experience!

This was hands on (under the watchful eye of Saul). Fun, creative, and a learning experience.

From Our Editors

Most days, Saul Alcaraz can be found toiling over his 2,000-degree glass oven, often surrounded by an enraptured crowd. A surprisingly graceful practice, his glass-blowing is often as artful as a ballet performed in a volcano as he deftly spins, rolls, blows, and cuts his pieces. Having studied the craft since 1988, today Alcaraz splits his time between making effervescently vivid pieces—such as such as custom lamps and iridescent perfume bottles—and teaching teens and adults to do the same. In classes, he trusts his students to work toward shaping their own forms, even helping them introduce color into their creations to make them more attractive bait for trapping rainbows.
