Paperweight Experience for Two is a 2 hour introduction to furnace glassblowing focusing on the art of paperweights in our Hot Shop. Bring your spouse, family member, or best friend and have fun creating glass paperweights with the guidance of an instructor.
You will use a solid rod to take a gather of molten glass; apply colors and then shape the glass using a variety of glassblowing tools. Each student will create 1-2 paperweights during this class. You may take a more active or passive role based on your comfort level.

Your safety comes first, so we require that every student at SGS wear closed-toed shoes. Safety glasses are required for some classes (which we’ll provide). Please wear comfortable, cotton clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty, just in case. Depending on the class, students should also tie back long hair and avoid wearing dangling jewelry.
