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 to Zen Glass Studios in St. Petersburg. Choose between the following options:

  • For $49, you get to attend a one-on-one Make Your Own Wine Glass workshop (a $100 value).
  • For $250, you and up to three companions get to attend a private make-your-own project workshop (a $500 value).

The team at Zen Glass Studios infuses minds with the refractory secrets and delicate techniques of glass art. Customers can finally take flowers out of the fishbowl after a private, 40-minute Make Your Own Wine Glass workshop, where a helpful staff provides students with all materials and instructs artisans on the methods behind melting, mixing, and molding colored glass into a stem. Students will then graft the stem to their preferred style of top, finishing the piece with fluted edges or simple lines. During private-project workshops, groups of up to four yearling glassmiths spend two hours engaging in collaborative projects and torching malleable glass. Class members can elect to forge baubles such as marbles, pendants, flowers, and festive scuba-diving helmets to delight fish during the holidays. On December 3, Zen Glass will be celebrating the grand opening of their new South Street location with holiday-themed festivities including refreshments, raffles, and live glassblowing.

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.
