FIRST IN CLASS

Here at Zen Glass we offer many types of learning experiences. For those of you looking for a fun experience you will never forget, sign up with your friends and family for any of our 1 hour workshops.

To really dive in and make strides to become a glass worker we offer an educational approach to the learning process, where you learn how to run the torches, kilns, tanks and form a base for your glass knowledge that will take you to the next level and give you the tools you need to progress at your own pace.

Zen Glass Studio has an 18-year history in teaching lampwork/flamework glass to students young and old. If you are looking to start glassblowing, learn to be an independent artist, rent a torch spot and create your own glass pieces, start with our Beginner Class Flameworked Glass, Private one on one instruction in the hotshop, or the 15-week Glassblower Training Program.

Starting in 2002, students from Eckerd College, were brought in for a semester(sometimes 2) and submerged into the glass studio for a program to learn flameworked glass art. Many of our former students are making a good living and creating a life in glass. We now offer this intensive 15 week class to all who are interested in making a go at being a full time glass artist, in a “full immersion”, “holistic” setting geared to a structured, class like learner.

To say Zen Glass and it’s crew are great is a disservice to them. You can feel and see the passion they have for this as soon as you get there. Austin, who was teaching/showing my wife and I how to do everything was amazing. The gallery and store are amazing. The talent to make the things they make with glass is insane. My wife and I can’t wait to come back to try something else. Even our son asked if he could take a class with us next time. The experience was unforgettable.

Zen Glass is the BEST! The workshops are really fun with friends or solo. The beginner 9 hour course is awesome if you want to be a hobbyist (of the 15-week for commercial glass artists).

I would recommend this place to anyone!

Ashley Larson

The vibe you get from this place amazing. The people are all so welcoming. Great community and area.

From the moment I set foot in the hot shop I was treated like family and put at ease. Weirdie and Alex are 2 of the coolest human beings and made my wife and I feel like the glass was never unmanageable. My wife uses her wine glass all the time and I gave my pendant to my daughter who adores it.

The experience was so great in fact, I’ve signed up for beginner classes, bought my own gear and plan to keep coming back and doing this as a hobby.

Bring your kids, bring your significant others, bring your parents. Glass is fun to play with and it’s one of those things that’s easy to pick up and hard to put down! Zen Glass Studio is the place to make it happen. I am so glad I found them!

This was a fantastic experience for my 13 year old. He’s always wanted to try glass blowing and I’m very impressed with this studio. Nice area to sit out back. Would fully recommend this place.

We had an absolute blast! Austin was an incredible teacher so much so we went back for a second class to drive him nuts. We made several gorgeous pieces and no one got burned. Thanks again Austin you’re “AWSOME Austin!”

As a person who binge watched “Blown Away” in a day, this was a must. Austin was our instructor and he was amazing. Giving us little pointers and helping when needed. We each made a wine glass. We even had enough extra time to do a pendent. It was as awesome as I could have hoped for!! I would recommend anyone and everyone to this class.

Highly reccomend this place. Our instructor Dave made it very fun and relaxed. He was very eager to help and answer all our question and gave us enough space to have fun and be silly while providing a safe environment.

I spent a few minutes with Josh telling him my background and what I wanted to get from the class. He took me through a few ‘basics’ and I was off and running. Fantastic experience and I look forward to coming back the next time I’m in town.

My daughter had the BEST time during the 1 hour pendant making session! Austin was a fantastic teacher – very patient, encouraging and helpful. They have a gift shop if you’re looking for a unique gift. They have all the COVID safety measures in place, too. It’s a 2+ hour drive for us but very worth it and we’ll be back!

Jennifer Patterson

Thanks for accomodating our crazy group today! We had a blast and will be back!!

Zen glass is an amazing place. My friends and myself went on Saturday and had a blast. Katy and the staff were friendly and very informative. We did the make your own wine glass. Also if you have a chance check out their gallery of work. All of their pieces are simply stunning. I can’t wait to come back.

My friends and I just took a class on how to make our own wineglass. Austin and Josh were so knowledgeable and patient. If you are looking for new fun way to spend time with yours friends and incorporate your creative side. Checkout Zen Glass Studios and ask for Austin or Josh.

What a fantastic selection of glass art from varied artists! All of which was functional, decorative, and beautifully crafted! I will definitely be back to take a glass class!

Josh Poll & David Walker did such an awesome job in honoring my brother! Had some beautiful pendants & a pocket piece made with cremations & some outstanding paper weights too. Can’t put into words what it feels like to have & only know I have felt a definite peace.

What a blessing to have a place like this here! I can’t stop coming back to make things. Everyone is friendly and the shop is full of such wonderful art. This is the kind of thing you can bring anyone to do and they will have a good time. I’m hooked!
