Monadnock Glass Arts was shaped under the finely wrought fingertips of owner and flameworker Eric Duyette, who breathes more than a decade of experience into every blown sculpture, vase, and bulb. Classes introduce students to the art of basic glass blowing with private instruction in focused projects such as working with Pyrex borosilicate glass, making glass marbles or pendants, shaping sea-life sculptures, or creating full-scale models of flaming bath beads. Two torch workstations dominate the intimate studio environment where Duyette instructs with an emphasis on safety and proper ventilation and equipment use. Classes are available Monday–Friday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., as well as Monday–Thursday from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Weekend hours are subject to availability. Students should arrive sporting appropriate clothing and unbuttered fingers.

This is a wonderful experience. Eric is a great guy, and has the perfect personality for working with total newbe's. (He is both very patient, encouraging and engaging). While this is called a glassblowing class, most of what we did was glassworking -- making a paperweight, marbles, refrigerator magnets, etc. You can however do very basic glassblowing...I made a small Christmas ornament. I highly recommend this -- if you sign up, go quick, as Eric said some never redeem their class...what a shame. Also, know you will need to make a return trip as hot glass needs a day to cool down. You might be able to arrange him shipping it to you for an extra fee. Finally, after your class, celebrate at the Highland Kitchen, as wonderful casual local restaurant ~ 3 blocks from where Eric is currently located.

This was an awesome class to take! Eric is a great teacher. He has a lot of patience, even when his students are nervous. I would definitely go again.
