Spin It Out

This is our platter making class! Learn how to roll into color, heat, blow and expand the glass bubble with your breath. Use the jacks (the glassblower’s favorite tool) to open your bubble, then adding heat & centrifugal force, watch the magic happen as you spin the bubble open into a beautiful platter. No experience necessary!

Cheese Platter

Blow a huge bubble & spin it into a platter! Our instructors will guide you to roll into color, heat the glass and use a variety of the glass blowers’ tools. Then, using gravity & centripetal force, spin the glass until it opens into a platter (10-12” wide)
