Paperweight Classes


Small $80/person

Large $98/person

I highly recommend taking this class first before taking others, although not a requirement. In this course will learn the true basics of glassblowing. Even though we will only be sculpting the glass, it will introduce you to the movements of what it takes to be a glassblower. You'll learn about the tools and machines as well as the cooling process and of course a bit of history thrown in!

Class Description: First, you will see my skills in action with a demonstration of creating this basic yet beautiful staple of glassmaking. You will be provided with the option of 2-3 colors to mix as well as some guidance as to what type of internal world you would like to capture within your paperweight. I will guide you through each step as we heat and shape your piece.

  1. Please arrive about 15-20 minutes early to your scheduled class.
  2. Minimum per class is 4 people. If you have fewer than that, individuals may be added to fill the class or your group may be scheduled back to back with another small group. Let's all be friends!
  3. Each group must select the same thing to make. This helps with the overall rhythm of the workshop because I will be demonstrating what you are making at the beginning of the session, so its good we are all on the same page!
  4. Everyone must sign a waiver. Glassblowing can be dangerous but trust in us to keep you safe, we've been doing this a long time!
  5. We take a 50% deposit upfront to hold your spot in the calendar and if you decide to cancel you must do it at least 7 days in advance or you lose your deposit. This is a very time sensitive and expensive art so ample time for us to fill our schedule is a top priority. 
  6. Any special requirements for any individuals must be acknowledged upon scheduling so we can make the proper arrangements to give everyone a great and safe time. An extra glass artist may be needed to help.
  7. Everyone must wear closed-toe shoes. NO SANDALS. Save those toes for the beach!
  8. Finished work will be available for pick up after 48 hours.
  9. Let's have some fun! 


Blowing glass is a fascinating medium. It's a material that you can never truly touch with your hands. It takes specialized tools that are centuries old in design. Nothing feels more amazing than grabbing molten glass with a large pair of tweezers and stretching it out. It is truly a bizarre and fascinating world to experience!

We can't wait to have you!
