- $120 for a glassblowing workshop with appetizers for one
This workshop is being offered exclusively to Groupon customers. First, professional glassblowers lead an orientation in the studio and demonstrate their methods. Students are then divided into two groups: one heads to the Hot Shop to make a solid glass paperweight through traditional glassblowing, and the other goes to the Flame Shop to make a colorful bead or pendant via lamp working.
Over two hours, students are rotated through the shops to try out both processes. For the third hour, participants snack on appetizers, mingle, and watch the pros show off more advanced skills.

Worcester Center for Craft's New Street Glass Studio
As a part of the Worcester Center of Crafts—which has been promoting the value of craft since 1856—New Street Glass Studio is equipped with everything both seasoned glassblowers and newbies need to bring their crystalline dreams to life. The 8,000-square-foot studio is armed with all sorts of state-of-the-art gear, including a 450-pound Correll Glass Invested Pot Furnace and six heavy-duty kilns, in three separate shops. Veteran artists can rent out space to pursue their own projects, while artists-in-residence get the 24-hour support and gallery shows they need to sustain their craft. And for those looking to try their hand at the centuries-old trade, those same artists lead classes for youth and adults.
