What You'll Get


First practiced by ancient gods of the underworld who forged vases in the fiery depths of volcanoes, glass blowing is now the second-most popular air-filled art form after inflatable architecture. Acquire a piece of molten magnificence with today's Groupon: for $95, you get a three-hour introduction to glass-blowing class for two at Luke Adams Glass in Norwood (a $190 value). Groupon holders will also receive 10% off all merchandise. Classes are available on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon and from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.; call ahead to reserve a spot.

At Luke Adams Glass, artists celebrate the beauty of blown glass by teaching intimate, hands-on classes and filling a gift shop with intricate handmade objects. During three-hour introductory glass-blowing classes, students 16 and older with little to no glass-blowing experience will craft their own glass paperweight as well as one or two glass-blown vessels, such as a bowl, a vase, or a life-size replica of the Lusitania. After tinting their sculptures with the included color applications, students leave the pieces to cool overnight and may pick them up the following day. Expert instructors typically work with only three students in each class, ensuring every aspiring artist gets individual attention as he or she manipulates fire, shapes molten glass, and immobilizes migratory herds of paper with elegantly crafted desk pieces.

In the interest of safety, all students must wear cotton clothing and closed-toe shoes and bring sunglasses, a bottle of water, and a fully functional cerebrum. Groupon holders may also purchase glass-blowing equipment or gifts from the shop at a 10% discount. Enthusiasts can also bring pals to the studio’s free open house on Saturday, December 10 to check out demonstrations and craft a holiday ornament or glass-wrought Christmas list at one of the studio’s kilns.

About Luke Adams Glassblowing Studio


Luke Adams's childhood talent for drawing spurred him toward an education in glasswork at the Massachusetts College of Art, where he honed his technique under artists from all over the country. Today, Luke molds his molten medium into colorful, one-of-a-kind starfish suncatchers, jewelry, and paperweights. Through jewelry-making and glassblowing classes, his studio spreads a passion for glass-oriented artistry, teaching students to shear and assemble artful shards, molding them into versatile, translucent building blocks similar to the kind used to by Gustave Eiffel to construct an ice-cube model of his infamous tower.
