You will turn and roll the liquefied glass through your colors on the end of a steel blowpipe. Starting the bubble and expanding the inside of the ornament with your breath is a real treat! You will blow out the glass to form the classic ornament ball.  Your piece is finished when we break it off the “Punty”(steel blowpipe) and drop a molten bit on top for the loop.  

Our dedicated and knowledgeable artist staff are there to help you complete your perfect piece and place it in the annealing kiln or annealer, where it must soak and cool down over the next 12-24 hours.

I’ve been taking the beginner glass blowing program for 5 weeks now and have to say is a great place to learn. Josh,Dave, Katie, and Kyle are super knowledgeable. I gotta say if you’ve ever had a interest in learning glass this is the place to go,very reasonably priced and they’re third Thursdays with free open torches front 7 to 11pm are a great way to spark your flame for this superior artform and top notch learning facility.

Today my work partner in crime and I took our amazing customer service team for a class on pendant and bead making – they had so much fun! Josh & team were so patient with the 4 of us and really let us experiment and explore the artists inside. I was proud of both our girls – Karin and I need more practice heehee. This was 100% an awesome time and highly recommend it!!!

Amy Jo

I went today and had a private class with Josh!!!! And Josh was there all the way! I’m not sure I have enough talent to master this but it was an awesome experience and I may try to make a pendant before I leave!!! Thanks again for a great time…..

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.

Great open lampwork studio. My introduction to the method. Super staff

Duncan Brown

So fun! Even I could make my own pendant😍

Steph J

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!

Greg V
