For things to do in St. Pete, Zen Glass Studio brings it’s 20+ years of expertise into full swing with our most popular glassblowing workshop that we offer – the Make-Your-Own Wineglass Workshop! Come be our guest artist and make a wine glass you can bring home with you at Zen Glass Studio in the Warehouse Arts District.
In this one hour experience, the guest artist will choose up to 3 of your favorite colors and hand select your favorite wineglass cup top and bottom foot. Glass shapes include:
- Red wine glasses
- White wine glasses
- Champagne flutes
- Shot glasses
- Martini glasses
- Whiskey snifter
- Candy dish
Once you’ve selected your colors and wineglass cup and foot, your instructor will give you a demonstration on the ins and outs of what to do and not to do while operating our torches. Then we’ll turn you loose to begin the process of melting and manipulating your glass. You can fuse and mix colored glass rods with thick clear glass rods, heating and then shaping them with tools like torches, graphite pads, paddles and tweezers.
Our dedicated and knowledgeable staff are there to help you until your perfect piece is completed and placed in the annealing kiln or annealer, where it must soak and cool down over the next 12-24 hours.
Your finished pieces will be ready for pick up as soon as the next day and can also be shipped worldwide.
Zen Glass Studio has offered this great experience for over 15 years in the Tampa Bay area and have introduced glassblowing to more than 10,000 people!
