Glass blowing on Maui
Glass blowing on Maui – real glass blowing experience – Come over and play with the fire! Step into the world of hot glass! Work together with professionals! Watch live glassblowing or make your own one-of-a-kind glass art! In this workshop, you get abbreviation on how to make your choice of a glass piece. You will then have the opportunity to create the same object with guidance from your instructor. First, you’ll choose your piece, then your colors, then you’ll apply them to the hot glass from the furnace. After shaping the molten glass you’ll inflate it by blowing into the end of the steel glass blowing pipe.
We offer fun and educational classes and demonstrations to anyone curious to experience the warm and hot glass processes. We invite you to choose from a range of glass pieces. Each class lasting from 30 minutes to 2.5 hours.
Our classes are offered year-round. No experience necessary. Private and group lessons available.
What to expect:
It starts with a safety orientation, then moves on to actually making the piece. Participants are guided and assisted one-on-one with one of our highly experienced professional glassblowers. Students start out by picking colors. The teacher then shows them how to apply color to the hot glass and helps in the process specific to the piece being made.
Glassblowing, at its heart, is a TEAM SPORT! We bill by the piece, but we can get more than one person working on each piece. More involved pieces, such as the Fish Sculpture, can have up to 3 participants. Most pieces are great for either one or two people. Team work is encouraged with all students making this ideal for families and groups large or small. As a team building activity, glassblowing lessons bring participants together in a fun, challenging and interactive format that strengthens bonds and encourages teamwork. You’re welcome to bring along as many friends or family as they like to watch, take pictures or capture video. Our gallery of beautiful artwork will keep people young and old entranced and our friendly staff offers free studio tours to see how we make stunning works of art.
