Students create their own pumpkins in this beginner-friendly class. Once it is hot enough, students color, mold, and blow the glass into a rotund gourd shape.

Half Moon Bay Art Glass

Formerly known as Colquhoun Glass Works, the seeds of Half Moon Bay Art Glass were sown in 1977 when artist Douglass Colquhoun Brown stepped off a tall ship in the English Channel. Discovering the art of etched glass in France, Brown became instantly smitten with the craft, and vowed to learn it upon his return to the states. After honing his skills creating scientific glassware for Silicon Valley, the artist expanded into more decorative objects such as jelly fish lamps, orchids, and seasonal glass pumpkins ideal for the jack-o-lantern-averse. Located on the site of a winery, Half Moon Bay Art Glass teaches glass-blowing classes suitable for first-timers of all ages, 12 and up.

We had a wonderful time and created beautiful glass pumpkins. The instructors were terrific, very helpful, but pushed you to do as much as you could yourself. Wear comfy and cool clothes, the workshop gets very warm. I will be going back.

So much fun. Go do some wine tasting and then walk next door to the HMBAG and create a beautiful pumpkin. Very fun way to spend an afternoon.
