Glass Flower Glassblowing Class

A coveted collectors item and a perfect gift! Make a flower that is both charming and completely unique!

After you have created your glass masterpiece, it must slowly cool in a kiln, and will be ready the next day or, if any polishing is needed, the next week.
Please note that we can only hold your beautiful, unique glass treasures for 90 days in our cubbies. Any items not picked up within 90 days will be removed to make space for other students’ work.
