What You'll Get


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 this Groupon.

Choose from Three Options

  • $79 for a two-hour Shape a Floppy Bowl glass-blowing class for one (a $160 value)
  • $79 for a two-hour Glass Beads bead-shaping class for one (a $160 value)
  • $79 for a two-hour Party of 4 cold-glass-fusing class for four (a $180 value)

The Shape a Floppy Bowl glass-blowing class introduces students to hot-glass-crafting techniques in a safe environment. After students turn and shape molten glass, bowls cool for a few days in an annealing oven before they're ready to be filled with colored pebbles or Fruity Pebbles. Alternatively, the glass-bead-shaping class allows students to blow, sculpt, and decorate simple round beads, which then also cool in the annealing oven for several days. During a Party of 4 session, quartets learn to safely cut glass as they fuse plates, sun catchers, or coasters using colored flat glass.

About Bay Area Glass Institute


The nonprofit Bay Area Glass Institute supports glass arts in its community by providing affordable studio space for artists, holding events and exhibits of local work, and teaching basic classes. Students create delicate glass art using cold techniques or acquire the basics of glass blowing as they rotate molten glass at 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit to make bowls, vases, and flowers. A store on the premises sells elegant and innovative work by the local glass artists affiliated with the institute.
