What You'll Get


Glass provides a resting place for wine, evening wear for Cinderellas, and a more dramatic exit from 44th-floor windows for Bruce Willises. Shatter artistic inhibitions with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a two-hour glass-blowing class at Santa Barbara Art Glass (a $200 value).

Santa Barbara Art Glass proprietor Saul Alcaraz mentors novice molders as they wield rods tipped with molten glass during a two-hour glass-molding class. During each session, Saul will teach students to shape up to four household items such as vases, paperweights, tumblers, or see-through pants. Students can also incorporate color into their creations to make them more attractive bait for trapping rainbows. Classes are offered Monday–Saturday from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. and from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

About Santa Barbara Art Glass


Most days, Saul Alcaraz can be found toiling over his 2,000-degree glass oven, often surrounded by an enraptured crowd. A surprisingly graceful practice, his glass-blowing is often as artful as a ballet performed in a volcano as he deftly spins, rolls, blows, and cuts his pieces. Having studied the craft since 1988, today Alcaraz splits his time between making effervescently vivid pieces—such as such as custom lamps and iridescent perfume bottles—and teaching teens and adults to do the same. In classes, he trusts his students to work toward shaping their own forms, even helping them introduce color into their creations to make them more attractive bait for trapping rainbows.
