Creative talents, like houseplants and celebrities, wilt without proper attention. Artistically exercise your imagination with today's Groupon: for $75, you get one pumpkin or ornament glass-blowing class at Live Laugh Love Glass in Tigard (a $150 value). Groupon buyers also receive 10% off one item in the gallery.
From within Live Laugh Love's 6,000-square-foot studio, owners Brett and Natalie Vinsant beckon to artists of all levels to learn the craft of decorative glass blowing in their hands-on classes. The one-hour Blow Your Own Glass Pumpkins class unites one to four fledgling glass blowers as they glean tips on creating three to five multihued pumpkins solid enough to foil relentless jack-o-lantern carvers. Pupils wield fire to fashion three to five tree trinkets during the 60-minute Blow Your Own Christmas Ornaments class, which unveils a palette of colors for designing vibrant holiday baubles. Students of both classes can pick up their masterpieces the next business day, and must wear closed-toed shoes during the sessions.
Live Laugh Love Art
For the past decade, Brett and Natalie Vinsant have been immortalizing their exhales as elegant, blown-glass artwork. The duo envisioned Live Laugh Love Art as a shared studio, where glass-blowing professionals and students alike could breathe life into bright glass bowls and vases. Small groups of students join enthusiastic instructors during glass-blowing and fusing experiences, in which they learn to manipulate molten glass into various forms, and after which students take home their piece of art to display on mantels, desktops, and climbable highway billboards. The gallery inspires students with a collection of professionally blown vases and bowls whose weightless glass curves reflect the twinkle of natural light. After time in the glass-blowing workshop area, aesthetes can shop in the gallery. Live Laugh Love Art also hosts private events and parties in their event space.
