Blow and Behold: A Glass Tumbler Making Experience



Celebrate creativity and craftsmanship with Dougherty Glassworks' "Blow & Behold: A Glass Tumbler Making Experience". This special event offers hour-long sessions, inviting you to delve into the art of glassblowing alongside our expert artisans.

Designed for individuals aged 14 and above, this workshop caters to both the curious newcomers and the creatively inclined. In an intimate setting that accommodates only two participants per session, you'll receive personalized instruction and hands-on experience in glassblowing. Starting with a selection of vibrant colors, you'll learn the fundamental techniques of shaping molten glass, including blowing and molding your very own glass tumbler.

Each session begins with a safety briefing and a demonstration of the glassblowing basics to ensure you feel comfortable and informed throughout the crafting process. Our cozy workshop environment provides the perfect backdrop for learning a new skill, enjoying a unique date, or simply experiencing the joy of creating something functional and beautiful.

Your newly crafted drinking glass will need to cool overnight in our annealer to ensure it's durability. Once cooled, your creation will be available for pickup at our studio. For those unable to return, we offer shipping options to deliver your handcrafted glass directly to your door.

With limited spots available and high demand expected, we encourage early reservations through our online booking system. This is more than just a class—it’s an opportunity to create a tangible, usable art piece that you'll cherish every time you use it.

Great Workshops

My wife and I did two workshops with Cameron. We were very impressed with the quality of hands on instruction Cameron and his assistant gave us. Not only were the workshops a lot of fun, but we also got to keep some great glass creations. We had a wonderful experience.

I have done 4 workshops and will do more for sure

Great. I’ve been 4 times already in 1 month. Cam Dougherty helps you to understand the process, leads you through every step, and lends a hand when you need a little finesse. Every piece I bring home my friends, family or recipient of the creation are speechless and thrilled. I can’t wait for my next opportunity to create more glass art at Dougherty Glassworks. Thanks Cam!
