Lungs take a turn at visual artistry, crafting autumnal trinkets on pumpkin-making day, a get together on Saturday, October 15, where participants create gourds ($40) that won't mold, rot, or stare uncomfortably at teenagers until they are forced to smash them to bits. Christmas-ornament weekend gives students the chance to spruce up spruces with dangling glassware during a two-day workshop November 25–26 ($40), whereas private lessons help lips shape celebratory creations for any holiday, such as a balloon for a birthday or a punching bag for boxing day ($90/hour). Patrons who prefer to leave the glassmanship to the professionals can peruse the mesmerizing display of swirling artwork for sale in the gallery, including vases, bowls, ornamental flowers, and handcrafted light fixtures ($40–$225).

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.
