Due to the dangerous and complex nature of the activity we require advance notice of all physical and other ability handicaps ♿️ . Our studio is handicap accessible however there are some limitations that arise from the historic nature of the complex. Please let us know any special access you require well in advance.
New stained glass and fusing options as well as lampworking (borosilicate) options have been added for summer.
“Blowing glass is not just art it is a highly trained and skilled, athletic performance sport.” – me, now.
Be prepared to be challenged like never before. Completion of workshops items we present as options is only feasible with incredible amount of assistance supervision and instruction. Treat the activity with the respect and consideration for difficulty and complexity it deserves. Do some homework before your visit, with YouTube and the rest of the internet there is no excuse to come in uninformed without some idea of what you’re getting yourself into for SO MANY REASONS. Google it.
Every artist has spent years and tears on learning their craft do not insult us with phrases like “this is harder than it looks” or expect to be a master your first visit it is naive and disrespectful. And yes. It’s hot. Let’s just all acknowledge glassblowing is hot. The furnaces are hot. If you’re afraid of fire this ain’t for you. If you can’t take the heat… you know the rest.
Beginners make beginner stuff. If you want something complicated you can place a custom order or buy something premade from inventory.
We have a stepped level of difficulty offerings like any higher educational institution would. Start at 100 level and work your way up repeating as needed. This is the way.
This complex physical activity usually requires bilateral coordination of hands and feet, however we can offer our own abilities to make nearly any situation doable with a little clever thinking and willingness to compromise.
While we understand life happens we do require a 30 dollar processing fee for rescheduling requests because of labor and costs to accommodate such requests.
Be aware that, because of the complex nature of the process and imperfect nature of life scheduled workshops are always subject to change/cancellation from many factors outside of our control including weather, illness, equipment issues, power outages, emergencies and more. Affected groups are sent codes to reschedule when the issue has passed. Refunds can be obtained in most cases if rescheduling is not possible ONLY if we have cancelled on you.
We have a third party disputes management team with our vendor Peek for disputed funds and they follow specific policy and protocol of their own. Groupon customer service handles Groupon customer payment issues.
