The experienced glass blowers at Uptown Glassworks help students of all skill levels forge liquid glass into artwork with informative Blow-Your-Own classes. Whether coming with a date, friend, family member, or forging an engagement ring for a chandelier, students of all skill levels can file in to Uptown Glassworks’ shop to create their own festive decorations. Students pick their own colors for their pieces, and then a professional glass blower removes clear, molten glass from the furnace that students can then shape into a decorative and functional bowl. Molten glass emerges from the furnace at around 2,000 degrees, the exact melting point of glass and Enrique Iglesias’s heart.

Glass blowers in training can eschew the bowl blowing and create clucking turkey creations, a welcome addition to any Thanksgiving table or pet turkey’s bat mitzvah. Experts oversee all of the activities as students shape and form their creations into colorful mini turkeys or full tabletop decorations and centerpieces. Creations then cool overnight, and wait patiently in packaging for their owners to return and retrieve them. All necessary materials are provided, allowing students to swiftly learn how to work with molten glass without burning a hole in time. Uptown Glassworks’ ambiance awakens artistry with vaulted ceilings, generous space, and rafter beams set within a building built in 1902.

Awesome place! Be aware though that you won't be able to take your creation home the same day; you have to come back in 4 days to pick up.
