What You'll Get


Glass can be exquisite in its myriad forms, from the ornate windows of a Gothic cathedral to the crystalline webbing of a freshly vandalized windshield. Reflect on beauty with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

  • For $19, you get a blow-your-own glass project for one (up to a $49.95 value)
  • For $38, you get a blow-your-own glass-project party for two (up to a $99.90 value)<p>

During project sessions, participants peruse supplies and choose their favorite colors, or the colors that display their hatred of magenta. With the assistance of a hot-shop staff member, they blend their pigments into glass puddles dispensed from 2,000 degrees into ornaments, chili peppers, spherical floats, apples, or eggs. Finished forms cool in the confines of a 1,000-degree kiln, which ensures pieces stay crack-free while heat disperses, and artists may pick up their work about 72 hours later. Hosts are welcome to bring snacks or arrange for full catering, and evening guests may bring alcoholic drinks.<p>

Uptown Glassworks

Within the century-old confines of Uptown Glassworks’ warehouse, furnaces melt handfuls of kaleidoscopic frit into malleable shapes manipulated by a team of 10 professional glass blowers. But these tradesmen don’t just create works for the gallery; they also share their secrets with students in a variety of activities, from introductory courses on making beads and paperweights to advanced instruction that can be applied toward college credit or used to fix the pockmarked walls of glass houses.

During the shop’s Blow-Your-Own sessions, participants apply color to clear, molten glass that has recently emerged from a 2,000-degree furnace, then blow their mixture into 1 of 20 different shapes. The next day, patrons can pick up their cooled and packaged creations, comparing their handiwork to the gallery’s collection of products, which are made by more than 90 local and regional glass artists.
