What You'll Get
Glass provides a home for fancy bouquets, the feet of fairytale princesses, and reformed stone-throwing capuchins. Enjoy the versatile beauty of this substance with today’s Groupon: for $40, you get a one-on-one introduction to glass-making class at Taylor Backes (a $100.50 value) in Boyertown.
During Taylor Backes’ 30-minute, one-on-one classes, studio co-founder Will Dexter guides fledgling glass smiths through the igneous world of glass making with individualized attention. After a safety debriefing, aspiring artisans learn the basics of how to gather, shape, decorate, and tickle liquid glass. With this newfound know-how, students craft a paperweight in the likeness of a favorite flower or a beloved amorphous blob. The glassy creations can be taken home to decorate desks, squelch paper-based uprisings, and clairvoyantly reveal the outcomes of future glass-making sessions.
