Glass can be exquisite in its myriad forms, from the ornate windows of a Gothic cathedral to the crystalline webbing of a wine glass freshly cracked by an overzealous opera singer. Reflect on beauty with this Groupon.

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.

It was a fun hands on experience. Mr. Patterson is knowledgeable and creative.

My mom went with me to one of the glass making classes. We made the underwater world paperweight and we love it! We actually have since returned to Peter Patterson Glassworks for one of their open houses, where we both made glass pumpkins, and I anticipate going back to make Christmas ornaments at their December open house as well! We really loved the experience! Such a neat, different experience to be able to make something out of glass. Peter and his helpers are always very helpful and very patient with us, and we love getting to have these opportunities to make neat glassworks!
