The 10 experienced glass-blowers at Uptown Glassworks teach the enigmatic act of forging liquid glass into ornate, multicolored artworks. No experience is necessary for a blow-your-own-glass session, where you join a group of students to learn the basics of the craft, and walk away with individualized pieces of hand-blown glass. Choose in advance between options such as a precious tree ornament, a delicate flower, or a light-catching concave bowl, which makes a stylish place to store your most bittersweet chocolate or tears.
