Half N Half Date Day 2/17/24 from 3pm-5pm

Experience a very special date this year at J. Draper Glass. Play together & understand how soft the glass is to make your creations. Each experience offers unique ways to help each other create their masterpiece.

Half and Half $375.00 per couple

1 Ticket is good for 2 people

This date provides both styles of glassmaking in the studio; solid and blown.

Solid Heart Paperweight-Our instructors will guide your development and confidence as you learn how to roll into color, heat the glass, and create a beautiful Heart paperweight by twisting, pulling and poking the hot glass.

Smooch Bowl-This popular class has gotten bigger by 2″. Learn how to roll into color, blow a
large bubble and then flatten the air out to create a double-walled bowl! Your instructor then adds a foot on the bottom to give it a lift to provide more weight. This class shows how glass can change shape very fast. The finished project will be the size of a large cereal bowl.

$375.00
