Choose Between Two Options

  • $69 for a blow-your-own-tumbler class for one (up to a $150 value)
  • $139 for a blow-your-own-tumbler class for two (up to a $300 value)<p>

Students shape and color their own vessels in this beginner-friendly class. Once it is hot enough and the color is melted in, the material is blown into a textured mold and placed on the punty—the iron rod—to finish off the lip. The piece can then be picked up the next day at the shop, shipped for $10 to most locations in the United States, or directly conjured into the home by students who are also wizards.<p>

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.

So instructive and supportive...really helped us learn the process. Carefully listened to each person's vision for their color choices and made sure we were pleased with our results.

It was such a fun experienc. Very professional and helpful. There were 4 of us that went and we got there early which was good because it takes some time to choose colors. Our pumpkins turned out like we were professional glass blowers.
