Choose Between Two Options

  • $49 for a weekday Percolla Reed glassblowing class ($100 value)
  • $49 for a weekend Percolla Reed glassblowing class ($100 value)

Guided by the steady hands of two inspired instructors, students in the Percolla Reed glass class get to design and mold molten glass into a decorative addition for gardens or soil-padded ottomans. A variety of color patterns, shapes, and techniques help impress personal touches before the reed is cooled off and available for pickup one week later. Because of the heat from the molten glass, open-toe shoes are not allowed, water or sports drinks are recommended, and reptilian lizard-men will feel right at home. Weekday classes are available on Wednesdays and Thursdays; weekend classes are available on Fridays and Saturdays.

Glass Academy

Since the visionary artistic husband-and-wife team of Chris Nordin and Michelle Plucinsky began Glass Academy, the state-certified glass-arts trade school has instilled glassblowing and other silica-shaping know-how into community members. The studio leads classes for all skill levels of craftsmen, ranging from introductory sessions to private lessons with a master glassblower. An on-site gallery showcases the fruits of their labors, which customers take home once they are completed. Handcrafted, custom works such as paperweights, beer mugs, and signature piece Detroit Puddle, created by pouring hot glass over a sewer cap, are available for purchase.

When not shaping delicate masterpieces, the staff shares their love of art with the outside world, leading educational tours of their 14,000-square-foot studio space. They also host gatherings including parties with demonstrations and explanations of the glass-blowing process as well as corporate training events, during which employees participate in a team-building, hands-on workshop. Glass Academy frequently hosts other fun events and fundraisers, including beer tastings, coffee nights, and drop-in workshops.

Lots of fun. All staff friendly and helpful. Instructors were really great. Furnaces hot and scary, but we felt safe. I'd do it again!

My boyfriend and I went here for a date, and we had a lot of fun. We got a tour of the warehouse, tried out glassblowing, and got to make our own Tavalo leaves, using the colors that we want and designed them how we wanted. The instructors were incredibly kind and helpful. They respected all of the students in the class, and answered all questions! We had a great time!
