Artists always want muses without realizing they are a big responsibility, demanding regular walks, a ticket to every sunset, and smoothies made of old pastels and greek yogurt. Cultivate your creativity an easier way with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a make-your-own-wineglass workshop at Zen Glass Studios in downtown St. Petersburg (a $100 value).

Zen Glass Studios infuses minds with the refractory secrets and delicate techniques of glass art. DIY drinkers and plastic-ware graduates can craft a custom gulping apparatus in the 30-minute, one-on-one make-your-own-wineglass workshop. All materials come included in the class, where the helpful staff will teach amateur artisans how to melt, twist, and mix colored and clear glass together for the stem. The stem is then fused to the artist's preferred style of cup, whether it be a martini glass, champagne flute, or beer trumpet.

Zen Glass Studios play host to a gaggle of locally renowned glass artists such as founders Joshua Poll and David S. Walker.

Zen Glass Studios

Much like professional skydivers, wily coyotes, and other careers that involve a degree of danger, most professional glassblowers aren’t self-taught. Joshua Poll, however, learned to harness the glass furnace all by himself, today imparting more than a decade of self-taught experience to Zen Glass Studios, where he and fellow glass smith David Walker create custom works of art by hand. Together they shape glass into authentic and unique pieces, including custom glassware and jewelry to wear while meeting a spouse’s goldfish for the first time.

Within their studio, Joshua and David teach workshops and classes, during which students survey basic to advanced glass-blowing techniques, crafting their own handmade objects such as ornaments, beer glasses, and vases. The duo also runs a full glassblower training program, which follows a syllabus structured to arm all students with all the necessary skills to set out on their own in the industry, just as Joshua did all those years ago.
