Up to 16 students learn techniques for forming glass and creating colors as they create glass-blown swirl paperweights. Class dates and times may vary from week to week. Students can pick up their paperweights 48 hours after class. Pieces that are not picked up after 60 days become the property of the studio. For safety purposes, everyone should wear socks that cover the ankle, close-toed gym shoes, and a long- or short-sleeved cotton shirt, rather than synthetic fabrics.

Peter Patterson Glassworks

Though glass art has been Peter Patterson’s career for more than 40 years, glimpses of his other passions come through in his pieces, from his knowledge of plants to his scuba explorations of exotic seascapes. Indeed, he shapes searing-hot glass with the same fluidity as water, drawing on lessons from master teachers and his own background as an illustrator.

Customer Reviews

The class was GREAT!. Peter and his team guided me through making a paper weight that is really cute. I'm so proud of myself for signing up for something totally new and different. I'm looking forward to taking another class.

I really had fun and am excited to pick up the piece I made. Will be going back tomorrow to make Christmas ornaments. I bought one of the glow glass light bulbs. Very cool. Going to get another tomorrow for a gift for dad. Class was nice and small so we weren't there for 3 hours waiting for everyone else to make their project. Works for me! Will be looking for another class. Hope it is small too! Had a great time.
