Classes 

At an Atlanta Hot Glass Class

Atlanta Hot Glass offers three types of glassblowing classes: “Glass 101”, “Glass Lab” and “Personalized Sessions”. You choose which one suits your style and your budget. The classes are not exclusive of each other – i.e. you can do one or all.

  • Glass 101 is for beginners. Our professional instructors teach you all basic skills you need to blow glass.
  • The Glass Lab allows a cost effective way to practice your glassblowing skills and meet other enthusiasts. Meeting other glass blowers becomes important when you start renting time as sharing is not only helps with the cost but also provides a ready assistant.
  • Personalized Sessions are key to learning new techniques and focusing on trouble areas. Also, some folks prefer the low student to teacher ratio.
