What You'll Get
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 this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $49 for a one-hour Make Your Own Craft Beer Glass workshop for one (a $100 value)
- $250 for a private two-hour make-your-own-project workshop for up to four (a $500 value)
During beer-glass workshops, instructors teach students to forge craft-beer glasses by hand by shaping liquid glass into custom vessels. Though the class focuses on beer glasses, students can also create wineglasses, pendants, marbles, paperweights, or vases. All of these projects are also available during private sessions, in which attendees may choose from any of the above options to create their own vitreous masterpieces.

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, 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.
