Creating a mosaic out of broken glass turns trash into art, much like compiling a rubber-band ball or throwing rotten fruit at the television. Reuse and rearrange with today’s Groupon.

  • $55 for a six-hour introductory glassblowing or lampworking class for one (a $110 value)
  • $99 for a six-hour introductory glassblowing or lampworking class for two (a $220 value)<p>

Glassblowing students gather their molten media from a 2,100-degree furnace, using lungpower to morph glass globs into delicate solid and hollow structures with a selection of glass-blowing tools. In the lampworking class, students meld glass with a combination of torches and tools, bending and fusing sand particles into small sculptures, beads, and pendants.

The Crefeld Glass Studio

Like the quadruple-digit fire inside The Crefeld Glass Studio’s furnace, instructor Josh Cole’s enthusiasm for glassworking helps budding artists create things they could not have attempted on their own. Josh keeps his classes at four to eight students so that everyone gets both the full benefit of his master’s of fine arts in glass from the Tyler School of Art at Temple University and a clear view of classmates as they work the furnace. Regular pop-ins from visiting artists imbue The Crefeld Glass Studio with a collaborative vibe, and an online gallery gives students a place to proudly show off the exquisitely rounded rims of their amber-streaked vases or the short-sightedness of their delicate glass sledgehammers.

The Crefeld Glass Studio

Like the quadruple-digit fire inside The Crefeld Glass Studio's furnace, the instructors' enthusiasm for glassworking helps budding artists create things they could not have attempted on their own. Classes are kept at four to ten students so that everyone gets a clear view of classmates as they work the furnace, and during the day, the studio is a part of the Crefeld School's art program.

The girls who taught us (Julie and Cat) were wonderful, very helpful, and took time to make us feel comfortable around all the hot stuff in the studio. This was a fantastic experience!
