Það sem verður gert

Want to try your hand at glassblowing? It is exciting! Make a flower, paperweight, ornament and/or tumbler with our help. You'll experience first hand the thrill of working with molten glass and will create unique works of art from start to finish. Check out some of my projects at www.dugrenier.com

I will start with an overview of the glass studio and the glassmaking process and give you an actual demonstration on how to make each item before you try it. You’ll gather the glass from the furnace, shape it on the marver, roll the glass in the color(s) of your choice, blow into the pipe, and help shape and reheat the pieces. After an overnight controlled cooling process, you walk away the next day with your own, one-of-a-kind creations or we can arrange shipping for a small additional cost.
Other things to note
Glassblowing is fun and suitable for everyone over the age of 8. We require that guest are vaccinated for Covid 19 to take the class. Check back later in the summer if we have lifted those requirements and open up the class to everyone.

Booked a lesson as a birthday gift for my husband. I knew he would love it and was surprised that I did too. I was intimidated by the heat, liquid glass and remembering to sit on my right hand so I wouldn’t accidentally touch something hot. Robert was a great teacher and lovely to speak with. Would highly recommend to anyone passing through the area interested in learning a new skill.

This was a great experience as we traveled through Vermont. Robert did an incredible job of balancing our time, making things fun, and helping us create our own unique pieces. He did an incredible job at balancing our involvement along with him helping so that we ended up with something decent. This was a great experience with a skilled craftsman, don’t think about it anymore… just do it!

Robert's Intro to Glassblowing workshop was the perfect way to end our Vermont getaway. He is not only an informative and patient teacher but also an extremely talented artist. The best part of the workshop is that you walk away with a beautiful piece of art to remember that moment in time.
