$59 for an Introduction to Beadmaking Class ($125 Value)

Over the course of a three-hour class, greenhorn glassworkers enter into the studio to learn beadmaking skills from an experienced artist. Students should bring a sketchbook for taking notes, and protective glasses will be provided for students who don't bring their own astronaut helmets.

Area 253 Glassblowing

Bathed in the intense light of its blazing furnaces, the industrial brick walls and naked concrete floors of the hot shop at Area 253 Glassblowing belie the delicacy and beauty of their creations. Experienced artisans instruct students of all skill levels, manipulating glowing gobs of molten glass on the ends of rods to produce floating balls, bowls, and decorative shards. Pointed blue-tip flame-working torches coax glass into shiny beads and borosilicate into baubles such as pendants and swizzle sticks. The shop also rents out its amenities for visiting artists, including furnaces, torches, and garage space.
