During Glass Experience classes, students work closely with a professional glass blower to learn the basic techniques of the trade, including forming and shaping glass with tools and adding colors. Each session includes all materials needed to make the student’s choice of a glass ornament, paperweight, or flower, which will be cool enough to take home 24–48 hours after the class. Closed-toe shoes, a long-sleeve cotton shirt, and long cotton pants are required; hair must be tied back. Classes are available seven days a week between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m.
Hotspot Glass Studio
The laws of physics seem to bend at the Hotspot Glass Studio. Some visit to watch artists twist and blow their one-of-a-kind medium, and others get their hands dirty in a class or workshop. The studio offers 'group gatherings', birthday parties, corporate events, private instruction, and curricula for different experience levels, and a few courses just for teens. Once students have been endowed with a bit of glass-blowing know-how they can then rent studio time from the Hotspot to practice their skills. Many guests are content to bring their own masterpieces home, but for those who want works of professional craftsmanship, the studio also accepts commissions. In addition, partners Dylan Cotton and Christopher DeMott, along with their fellow Hotspot artists craft light fixtures, centerpieces, and more to customers' specifications.
