The Deal

  • $50 for one admission to a glass-blowing and paperweight-making workshop with glass artists
  • When: select dates, July 23–October 3
  • Where: CH Glassworks Studio in Lakewood
  • This event is for ages 12–80

Participants must wear closed-toe shoes, jeans, and a T-shirt (long-sleeved if you’re sensitive to heat). No synthetic materials are allowed, and while goggles will be available, you’re encouraged to bring your own clear or tinted eye protection.


What You’ll Do

To create glass art, you need three things: fire, hands, and an almost magic disregard for the way solid objects are expected to behave. During this class, even first-time glass manipulators will get the chance to bravely mold a dollop of molten sand and shape it into a seasonal paperweight. Over the course of three hours, you’ll get one-on-one instruction and learn to melt, shape, and mold this dynamic medium.

  • Terms and First Aid
    Professional glass artists will start with lessons on terminology and safety, introducing you to the studio’s gear while helping you avoid injury.

  • Watch and Learn
    Next, the teachers will make a paperweight in front of the class, demonstrating the steps you’ll take—and the swirling colors you can add—when you make your own.

  • One-on-One Time
    Every student gets a full 30 minutes of independent instruction with an instructor.

  • The Finished Product
    After 48 hours, your paperweight will be cool and ready for pickup.


C&H Glassworks

Horace Marlowe
Glass Artist, C&H Glassworks

Horace Marlowe and Corey Silverman founded their eponymous studio, C&H Glassworks, to build a community of likeminded creatives. They’ve collaborated with each other and major designers to create epic installations such as a glass-and-metal Christmas tree for a Nieman Marcus flagship store and a modern piece for Denver steak house Guard and Grace. But they still get excited about teaching, which is why the duo offers an array of workshops for students eager to learn their hypnotizing art.
