The craft masters at Seattle Glassblowing Studio & Gallery guide pupils to artistic bliss by expounding on a spectrum of steps needed to create a glass bauble. Whether joining 10–25 fellow artisans in a group workshop or forming a clique in a one- to two-person private class, each session spans four informative hours. Professional glass wielders safely impart etiquette and basic techniques such as gathering glass on a rod and shaping it into colorful, geometric forms. By the session’s end, each participant can tote home their own hand-blown paperweight, bowl, or stress-relief ball. The studio asks that all students bring sunglasses and don closed-toe shoes and long-sleeved cotton clothing for safety.
