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 midair. Acquire the ability to blow beautiful glass with today's Groupon: for $99, you get an Intro to Glass Blowing class at Revere Glass School in Berkeley (a $220 value). Choose from the following options:

  • One four-hour level 1 class
  • One four-hour level 2 class
  • One four-hour level 3 class

Revere Glass School is run by a team of glass-crafting masters who provide expert advice for amateur and accomplished artisans alike. 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. Burgeoning glass blowers that have completed the introductory class or have comparable experience can opt for the level 2 class, during which they'll undergo hands-on sculpting sessions to create an implosion marble, a jar, a shot glass, or a perfume bottle. Level 3 classes for even more seasoned glassicists concoct an eye-catching goblet, ideal for sipping fermented juices or serving Yoo-hoo to Queen Elizabeth. 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 nonintimidating heat sources to ease novices into a precise, demanding art where careless mistakes can spawn sentient mirrors.

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.
