GLASS PAPERWEIGHT

Do you love the look of glass paperweights? How about displaying them in the light? Or are you obsessed with the reality TV show “Blown Away”? What if you could make your own custom glass paperweight right in St. Petersburg, just like the artists on television, to add to your collection?

Zen Glass Studio teaches the basics in the one-on-one Make-Your-Own Glass Paperweight Workshop held in our Hotshop.  In this one-hour experience, you, the guest artist, will choose your favorite colors for the piece you’ll be creating. Then you are introduced to glassblowing with a demonstration of thel ins and outs of what to do, what not to do. Then it’s time for you to  balance and maneuver the molten glass.

You will turn and roll the glass on the end of a steel blowpipe. Rolling the molten glass into granules of color, then twisting or shaping before “gathering” another layer of clear over your whole piece, adding space for light and dimension! Your piece is finished when we break it off the “Punty”(steel blowpipe).

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.

Are you ready to make your own paperweight?

Your finished glass paperweights are ready for pick up the next day (excluding Mondays – we are closed) and can also be shipped or picked up at a later date.

The Make-Your-Own Glass Paperweight Workshop is best for people aged 13 and up as it involves working with molten glass. If you are looking for something to do in St. Petersburg after you’ve visited The Pier and Chihuly Museum, come to Zen Glass Studio for a one-of-a-kind experience.

Zen Glass Studio has offered this great experience for over 15 years in the Tampa Bay area and have served 7 introduced upwards of 10,000 1st time glassblowers! Located in the Warehouse Arts District, Zen Glass Studio is central to all of St. Petersburg and the Tampa Bay area.

Forget painting a plate… Play with fire!

Anthony Cowdrey

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.

Michael Reed

Loads of great people

Maggie Straka

Everyone there is friendly and helpful. Love that I get to create something with my bare hands 🥰🥰🥰 its fun

We had a blast at the studio. Highly recommend taking a glass blowing class.

Brandi Mills

If you are itching for an adventure, look no further! I cannot say enough positive things about this experience. Josh went above and beyond to endure that we felt safe with social distancing, plenty of sanitizer and plexiglass between stations. He is very knowledgeable of his craft and helped us create exactly what we wanted. Already looking forward to our next trip

Kelly Dodsworth

Feel right at home here…long live zen glass studios

D. Auri.

Absolutely wonderful place to see and try something new! Our family of four had a great experience and would do it again in a heartbeat! My wife and I made wine glasses and our children made their own abstract art. We couldn’t have had a better time! Thank you Dave for an amazing afternoon! We will see you the next time we’re in Florida!

Melissa Burns

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

Absolutely incredible experience!!! So perfect for date night or company team building…so much fun!!

This is an AWESOME place with AWESOME staff! Josh and the bearded guy really made my first glass blowing experience rewarding and incredibly fun!! It was me and a group of my friends and wow! These guys have real talent and are able to teach a group of newbies the basics of glass art.
This is great place to gain new skills AND have a great time! Make a date at Zen Glass Studio with your loved one, a girls night out, etc.

Such a great experience and would highly recommend! We did a wine glass making workshop and had a blast! Thought I’d be intimidated by working with a torch but Austin (one of the artists at the shop and the teacher for our workshop) made us feel super comfortable and made sure we were having fun the entire time! This is great activity for date night or even as a group event. We are most definitely going back! Thanks for the awesome time Austin!!!! 😁❤️

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). Josh, Dave, Austin & Alex are fantastic teachers and talented artists. Highly recommended, the best place to work hot glass!
