Glass Workshops

Glass Blowing Workshops

For individuals who have always wanted to try working with hot glass, a private workshop may be purchased. Call (630-945-2813) or email me via the contact page if you’d like to purchase a glass lesson as a present for yourself, a good friend, or for several individuals. I’ll email you a sheet which explains both the gift and how to redeem it.

The recipients begin by assisting on a piece to become familiar with handling the various tools, and then create their own form. Their piece can be any solid shape – a round paperweight, an egg, a flame, or a free form sculpture. By working a solid mass of glass, I can guarantee that the workshop participant will end up with a completed work (which they can pick up at least one day later since glass needs to be annealed overnight).

Appointments for workshops may be scheduled most days of the week (including weekends) at times ranging from early morning to the evening.
