After realizing his lungs were strong enough to blow down houses, the Big Bad Wolf gave up breaking into homes to eat porridge and launched a successful glass-blowing company.

The professional glass factory allows amateurs to experiment and experts to breathe out beautifully spun masterpieces with all the amenities of a fully equipped industrial art studio. The four-hour glass-blowing party combines a social atmosphere of up to 50 students with live demonstrations and tasty victuals. Sample party fare such as pizza and wings, while imbibing soft drinks or beer and wine (21 years and older) out of a handcrafted souvenir glass cup which partygoers can take home, or suction to their cheeks in lieu of a Halloween costume. With the staff’s assistance, guests foray into the hand-blown world where they learn the ins and outs of the studio while crafting a paperweight or other small sculpture, which doubles as a paperweight.

J & C Glass Studio

What started out as a search for a fun alternative form of artistic expression led to the founding of an institution for preserving and sharing a millennia-old craft. That enthusiasm proved to be contagious, as more than 700 students from all ages and walks of life attended J & C Glass Studio's workshops in the first year alone.

Today, J & C Glass Studio continues to teach the art of glass blowing with instructional workshops that cater to beginner and advanced students. Passionate instructors share techniques performed almost the same way as artisans did thousands of years ago. During sessions, a mixture of sand, limestone, and silica is heated to 2,000 degrees until it reaches a honey-like consistency. From there, students shape it with tools, the power of suggestion, and their own breath, creating custom works of art that can decorate a mantel or desk for a lifetime.
