Great experience, awesome instructors - very helpful, fun and patient. Would recommend for a small group. Beautiful unique hand blown/made glass items for sale also.

My sister and I purchased this groupon as a Christmas gift for our mother. We went together to the class, which was small and intimate, and really enjoyed the experience. The instructor was amazingly patient, kind, and enthusiastic - we enjoyed working with him a great deal!

What a fun experience! We all got to blow a large glass bubble just to get the experience of actually blowing glass. Then we each made a custom icicle that I just love. The staff was so patient, professional, and clearly happy to work for this company. We can't wait to go back!

About 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, and drop-in workshops.
