Register for this Experience

Get a little glassblowing in your day. Watch me make a bead, then make one yourself. Design your colors, patterns, and textures. 

Each person will spend about 10-20 minutes making their bead. Then the bead will cool for 5-20 minutes. You can watch the other students take their turn, or you can leave after your turn.

Once you are here you can make additional beads for $15 each.

Groups of 4+ are encouraged to schedule their own Private Lesson for a discount. Just send me a request through Dabble.

Glass Artist and Teacher in Chicagoland for 10+ years with all kinds of people in all different places. I don't just make art and teach people how to make art. I'm a little bit like a construction worker / therapist. Glass Artists build and maintain their own studios, ovens, and furnaces. I do a lot of behind-the-scenes work so that I can help people enjoy the fear and responsibility that comes with handling 2300F molten glass.
