Become a regular glassblowing renter in the hot shop!
Upon completion of flo’s Beginners Series 6 Classes, students are able to rent private studio time in the hot shop to work on their own. Glassblowers with equivalent experience are welcome. There is a mandatory Studio Safety course that must be scheduled before renting.

Double Bench 10-Hour Rental Blocks: $225+hst
Share the floor and get to know the glory hole.
Must be used with second renter.

Come in with a fellow renter and work side-to-side for cheapest rental rates.  Each renter pays for the time and works independent of each other on their separate bench.  This rate is not to be confused with those coming in with an assistant for their own hot shop time.  If you are the only one renting for furnace time you then would be using standard rental rates.

Add $15per hr for use of glory hole
