We enjoyed the experience very much. We didn't get to see the finished product for too long before they went into the annealing oven, but we will see them when we go to pick them up. Dan's very nice and knowledgeable. We also had lunch up in Ft Collins at Rise afterwards. That was fun too.

Dan was great, he is very funny! His music choices are also wonderful, which adds to the experience. I am glad we did this in the winter because I can't imagine how hot it would be in the summer. Be prepared to be spoken to sternly because you are handling molten glass. It is all in good humor but still VERY serious. The ornaments and the paper weights are done very differently. Ornaments are blown while the paperweights get multiple dips of glass and you get to help shape them. We had six people go and did 1/2 ornaments and 1/2 paper weights. Looking back I actually prefer the ornaments but the bubbles you can add to the paperweights make them look amazing while you are shaping them.

Dan was a great instructor, who has lots of experience to share. We absolutely enjoyed learning from him. We will definitely return for another try, when we make our way back there.

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 Between Two Options

  • $39 for an introductory glass-blowing class for one (an $80 value)
  • $74 for an introductory glass-blowing class for two (a $160 value)

In each session, up to four students learn the basics of manipulating molten glass by shaping a bauble with proper exhaling and spinning techniques. New students begin by learning the basics of hot-shop safety and etiquette. By the end of each class, students will transform amorphous crystal blobs into paperweights or Christmas ornaments.

Daggett Glass Studio

Dan Daggett carefully works with red-hot glass as it glows and twists mercurially in a furnace. At his Loveland studio, Daggett unites fire, gravity, and respiration to shape each item. In addition to spinning vases, perfume bottles, bowls, paperweights, sculptures, and platters, the artist leads classes to share his craft with aspiring glass blowers. The shop fills with chatter as he introduces pupils to the basics of working with liquid glass and the required safety measures. The classes take place beneath shelves of Dan’s own work—vases formed by writhing, organic-looking folds of glass and sleek paperweights ideal for keeping files in place and kites from violating house arrest.
