  • Challenge your creative side and immerse yourself in one of the most innovative and beautiful things to do in NYC as you explore the magic of a Private Glass Blowing Class!

    Let your imagination run wild as you try your hand at a timeless art form. Enjoy the comfort, personalization and professionalism of learning in an exclusive studio setting. Absorb enticing topics surrounding the practice of glass blowing like its history, tools, skills and techniques, handling, cold working, color application, and more. Delight in a number of customized demonstrations, then give the methods a try for yourself!

    Your instructor has over 25 years of expertise in this intriguing trade and has been a featured artist in various books and other media.

    One-Class Option (2 Hours):
    This one-time class is fantastic for beginners and starts out with a brief history of glass blowing, as well as the processes that are used. Next you'll review tools and set up shop in the studio! Observe and practice "gathering" the glass to make a couple of small items (typically marbles or a flower). Work your way up to creating a paperweight with vibrant layers of color that is sure to brighten up any space.

    Two-Class Option (2 Hours per Class):
    Double the Private Glass Blowing Class fun with this two-part NYC art lesson! Your first session will entail the same instruction and hands-on practice as described above. The second class will then start with a review then jump right into learning how to start a bubble using a blowpipe. After a few attempts, you'll combine skills old and new to make a cup. Blow a bubble, use multiple gathers to increase the size, mold a lip, add color, and transfer your artwork using a punty (the iron rode used to handle the glass). And voila! You have yourself a new way to enjoy your favorite beverages!
