Compared to dollar bills, glass can withstand economic meltdown and fiery kilns, as proven by wampum and the Feds' coveted cache of glass dollars. Forge your fortune with today's Groupon: for $40, you get an introductory glass-making class at Potek Glass (an $85 value). Potek Glass hosts these Try-it! classes the second Saturday of every month from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

With skills refined by two decades of glass creation, Malcom Potek forges new artists in the craft of glass making. Students of all ages and experience levels can experiment with color, patterns and light as they craft unique glass pieces to replace ordinary water transporters or wooden legs. The studio's white walls and natural lighting serve as a blank canvas against which nimble creators explore the art and science behind conforming molten glass into stylish shapes. The class includes the cost of all materials and instruction, but glass-wielders bear the burden of transporting breakable items home safely.

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
