During the intermediate class, Saul Alcaraz introduces duos aged 12 and older to the art of glass blowing, providing them with enough material to complete two pieces and giving them free, though supervised, rein to create. Choosing to either meld multicolored glass or cast a spell to make it nearly invisible, students will learn to remove molten glass from the oven, then to roll it and shape it into a paperweight, small vase, or tumbler. Alcaraz holds classes every Monday–Saturday at 9 a.m. and 11 a.m.

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.

My friend and I had a great time! You really get to do all the steps to make an item. We both chose a bowl to make and they turned out great. Great local art experience! Thank you!

This was such a fun and unique experience!! The owners of the shop guide you with the steps to making you're creation, but you get to do all of the work yourself! The staff is so fun and welcoming and makes the experience truly unforgettable! Very worth the time and money!
