Our hot glass core curriculum includes a 5-week introductory class in glassblowing, along with intermediate and special topic classes and workshops exploring color application and construction techniques. Private lessons and group workshops/demonstrations are also available.
Open Studio / Studio Passport
Monitored open studio hours are offered approximately 12 hours per week. All students enrolled in courses 5-weeks and longer have access to open studio hours outside of class for the duration of their enrollment. For those with a basic knowledge of glassblowing and a wish to work at their own pace, access to open studio hours is available through our studio passport program.
Rent Studio Time
For those looking to explore and expand their personal work independently, the hot glass studio is available for rent on an hourly or daily basis.
