After an informal lecture on glass blowing from artist Aaron Tate, groups of up to four students safely craft bowls, vases, paperweights, ornaments, or marbles from colorful liquid sand. Aided by a kiln’s heat, which reaches temperatures of more than 2,000 degrees, pupils blend their favorite hues into puddles of molten glass, from which they coax recognizable shapes. Guests are welcome to bring their own beverages, and Aaron recommends wearing sunglasses and closed-toe shoes.

Aaron Thane Tate Glassworks

For 13 years, Aaron Tate was a guest artist at the Tacoma Museum of Glass, where he built his reputation as an expert glass blower and artist. Manipulating his medium through blowing, casting, and sculpting, Aaron has created a treasure trove of delicate glass vases and birds, which he displays in galleries throughout Seattle and Dallas and presses his face against when the air conditioning isn’t working. Also a former head instructor at Seattle Glassblowing Studio, Aaron imparts others with his artistic talents through regular classes, which demonstrate the techniques for molding amorphous globs of glass into crystalline bowls that hold amorphous blobs of mashed potatoes.

It was fun and interesting- a GREAT date for my husband and I. Wear clothes that you can move freely in and that won't easily catch fire!

Wife and I did a lunch date with Aaron, it was fun and exciting. Our glass works are one of a kind. We highly recommend doing the workshop. We are scheduling another workshop with our friends and family. Bring extra cash for bigger glass designs.
