During the classes, students will have the opportunity to try out basic sculpting skills while creating their own unique glass fish paperweight. They’ll first create the base of the fish by manipulating color and glass to create swirls and bubbles in the belly of the fish. Once this is complete, the instructor will lead students step-by-step as they add lips, eyes, a tail fin, and a top fish fin.

Redmond School of Glass

For sand to turn into glass, something must heat it to more than 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit—something like a meteor crashing into the earth, a volcano erupting, or lightning striking a beach. At Redmond School of Glass, a team of instructors with 10+ years of experience take care of the heating part, dipping into a chamber for dollops of molten glass that students turn into pieces of art. They lead one-time sessions as well as six-week courses—which maintain a student-teacher ratio of 2:1—imparting their expertise through projects that involve crafting ornaments, vases, and dishes. And they've stocked their studio with all the necessary tools, such as wooden blocks for shaping and jacks for cutting, to help make the art of glass blowing more accessible to the community. The area's world-renowned scene claims sculptor Dale Chihuly, the Pilchuck Glass School, and the Museum of Glass; so definitive is glass, in fact, that four out of the last five mayors were made of it.
