The glass blowing furnace is undergoing maintenance this summer:  classes will resume on August 19.  Come back later this summer to book your class, we look forward to seeing you!

For those students looking for a comprehensive, incremental experience, the Redmond School of Glass has created our Class Series.  These two series are designed to take a student through the building blocks they need to become a skilled glass blower.

Six Week Series

Beginning Glassblowing Level 1A

Our 6 week course allows anyone, even those with no experience, to learn the fascinating art of glass blowing! Glass blowing is a fun and rewarding hobby or an out-of-the box senior project for school. In our beginner’s courses, students begin with a complete introduction to the hot shop and use of the tools.  In the first session, you will start gathering glass for your own pieces, choosing and applying color and shaping your glass.  Advancing techniques week to week will help you become more comfortable with the process, which gets progressively more complex.

The cost of the first 6-week beginner’s course includes all materials and equipment.  We schedule two students per one instructor so you receive more hands on experience, either working your own piece or assisting your partner, than you will receive in many other glass studios.  The classes meet for three hours once a week, for the six-week session.

  • Week One: Paperweights
  • Week Two: Ornaments/Floats
  • Week Three: Vases
  • Week Four: Cylinders
  • Week Five: Candy Dishes
  • Week Six: Floppy Bowls

The cost is $625 per person, or $1200 for 2 students.

Please contact us today if you are interested in joining this class.

Six Week Series

Beginning Glassblowing Level 1B

In the second set of our 6 week series classes, you’ll take the skills you learned in Level 1A and begin to apply them to new color techniques. Progression will be based upon the instructor’s assessment of your skills and your desired outcomes, but may include:

  • Use of color bars
  • Lip Wraps
  • Body Wraps
  • Feathering
  • Use of Molds

The cost of the second 6 week beginner’s course includes all material and equipment.  It continues with the same 2-to-1 student to instructor ratio in order to maximize your time learning.  The classes meet for three hours once per week, for the six week session.

The cost is $625 per person, or $1200 for 2 students.
