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.

Such an fun experience!

So much fun! All the staff are very nice and knowledgeable. Such a great medium for creative people to try something new. I’ve been somewhat of an artist since Elementary school and have always loved creating things from drawing, painting, crochet and pottery. So glad I found a new medium to play with. Can’t wait for my next experience!
