Glass is one of the only materials that is both a solid and a liquid, along with jello and car keys when your back is turned. Create masterpieces with this malleable material with today’s Groupon to Peter Patterson Glassworks in Mundelein. Choose between the following options:

  • For $96, you get registration for two for a three-hour introductory glass-blowing class (a $200 value).

With more than 35 years of glass-blowing experience, Peter Patterson teaches how to forge and form glass-based creations during in-depth beginner classes. In the three-hour introductory course, silica scholars will glean skills in molding shapes and creating colors as they sculpt forms from the glowing material. During classes, students sculpt a one-of-a-kind glow ball paperweight, which can be cooled to a lustrous sheen or left molten for future snacking. Classes are kept to a maximum of 15 students, allowing for a more personal approach and ample time for questions. Each student’s original pieces can be picked up 72 hours after the course. Just like when living in a beehive, students should be sure to wear cotton fabrics, closed-toe gym shoes, and socks that cover the ankle.

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.
