What You’ll Do

It’s one thing to understand how glass gets its shaped, but quite another to give it shape with your own lungs. In this 90-minute class, experienced glass artist Mike Hudson teaches students how to craft their own decorative ornaments from scratch, so that even first-time glass blowers can create a masterpiece.

  • Look at All the Colors
    First, Mike shows off all the shapes, colors, and patterns that fledgling artists can add to their ornament.

  • Learn About the Gear
    Mike will teach you about the tools and prep a molten ball of glass with your chosen pigments.

  • Take a Deep Breath
    Using the techniques Mike has demonstrated, breathe some beautiful contours into your ornament.

  • Pick Up Your Piece
    Because it needs to cool overnight, you can pick up your work of art the following day or pay to have it mailed to you.
