I was the only person scheduled for my time slot. I had 10 minutes of hands on experience, 10 minutes of watching the host finish off the glass and then it was out the door. It was a missed opportunity to learn so much more.

It’s okay. It was an experience for someone like me not knowing a thing about glass making. However, you need to set your expectations low because you will only have a little taste of glass making. Don’t expect whole a lot out of it. Don’t romanticize this based on Groupon description. Overall I don’t feel it worth the money.

About 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. 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.
