What You’ll Do

The Vikings were a pragmatic people. They fought with steel and stone, and they drank out of hollow horns. But if they’d known how to blow glass cups, they almost certainly would have drank out of those instead. Glass artist Sharon Gilbert and her trained artisans teaches students how to combine the best of both worlds in a two-hour glassblowing workshop. Artisans will guide participants every step of the way, and provide them with all the necessary tools to create a unique piece of glass art, which they can choose to keep or gift.

  • Create Your Own Viking Horn Drinking Glass
    In the hotshop, you’ll craft a horn-shaped vessel out of clear glass.

  • Customize It with Your Own Sigil
    Bring a printed black-and-white image (2”x3” maximum) to transform into a stencil that will customize your glass. The image can be your initials, your house crest, or your favorite Game of Thrones house sigil. After the glass cools, Sharon and her staff will etch the image for you.

  • Head Home and Drink Up
    After allowing the paperweight to cool overnight, you can pick it up within the week, take it home, fill it with mead, and toast a glorious death and a VIP table in Valhalla.

Owner and Designer for Talisman Glass

Roughly two decades ago, Sharon Gilbert attended a glassblowing class and saw something that would change her life: an artist who used fire and sand the way others used a brush and paint. In the years since, she’s mastered the craft and became the owner of Chicago’s Talisman Glass. There, she teaches private and group glassblowing and fusing classes—that is, when she’s not being profiled for Bon Appetit, the Huffington Post, and the Chicago Tribune.
