$40 for a Try-It Glass-Blowing Class ($85 Value)

Beginner-level Try-It classes teach students of all ages the basics of manipulating glass into fetching shapes and designs. Classes differ by the type of glass used and technique practiced. The Basics from Boron class focuses on crafting paperweights and icicle ornaments using borosilicate glass, while the Kiln class demonstrates methods of creating varicolored tiles and pendants using sheet glass. Each class includes all materials.

Potek Glass

Seasoned artist Malcom Potek calls upon more than two decades of glass-manipulating experience while crafting intricate, multicolored tiles and custom sconces that suit the unique architecture of their intended edifices. Within his shop and gallery, a glossy collection of already made glass portraits, beads, and tiles entices eyes to ogle one-of-a-kind designs instead of Betty Boop–shaped clouds. Visitors inspired by Potek's work can learn the tricks of the trade during a variety of glass-blowing classes that set participants on the path to glass-blowing certification.

Customer Reviews

A lot of fun and very unique activity (at least for us), very educational and we got to bring home a souvenir, some were more impressive than others, but hey, it's nice to have something tangible and created by our own hands. Mary was our instructor and she was awesome! Patient, clear directions and easy to follow and she was always willing to come over and help. Thanks for such a great time!

The instructor was helpful and knowledgeable I felt like we got a great sampler of skills I felt their picture was misleading. I thought we were making a paperweight but in reality they were magnets
