Unlike the ability to blow bubbles, infants aren't born with the ability to blow glass, and therefore must spend their babyhood exhaling awkward artwork that just shatters mid-air. Acquire the ability to blow beautiful glass with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a four-hour glass-blowing class at Revere Glass School in Berkeley (a $220 value).
Revere Glass School is run by a team of glass-crafting masters who provide expert advice for first-time artisans. During a four-hour class, beginners get to create their own jewelry or sculpture in a supportive, small-group setting that nurtures students learning to manipulate molten glass for the first time. All necessary oxygen, propane, materials, and encouraging back slaps are included.
The glass gurus at Revere have assembled a collection of high-quality equipment and non-intimidating heat sources to ease novices into a precise, demanding art, where careless mistakes can spawn sentient mirrors. Bearers of today's Groupon also get a 15% discount on any additional classes.
Revere Glass School
Revere Glass School equips students of all experience levels with up-to-date glassworking gear from Glass Torch Technologies and Delta Elite. Six feet of working space at each workstation provides ample room for glass blowing and fusing or pipe making, while ventilation systems whisk away meddling ghosts. Experienced instructors aim to foster a noncompetitive working and learning environment through up to six levels of classes, guiding each glass-wielding neophyte along on his or her distinct artistic journey.
Courses span principles of practical foundations, creative techniques, and establishing an artistic business. Themed workshops feature international guest artists who lead intensives in methods that they've mastered, such as crafting holiday ornaments that double as single-use baseballs.
