Wat je gaat doen

Have you ever wondered how glass objects are made?

This is your chance to create your own beautiful piece art out of glass. Our instructors will introduce you to the exciting and age-old craft of hot glass forming.

By the time your class is completed, you will have made your very own piece of glass to enjoy.

First we will help you to understand the exciting possibilities of glass art and make your choice of colours and deign. Then you will learn about the properties of glass while making a “practice piece". For the main event you will move on to adding colour to the mix and forming your own paperweight, friendship ball, or fanciful flower.

During the 2 hr class for two you will each have 30-45 minutes of one-on-one instruction. All materials are included. In light of COVID 19, we have developed specialized masks fitted with a piece for glass blowing. These masks are disinfected after every use. All equipment is disinfected after every client. We aim to uphold a safe and sanitary environment

Your 2 works of art need to cool for 1 - 2 days after the class is done. You can either pick up your creation 2 days later, or you can have the items mailed to you for the price of shipping to your address.

Instruction is available in English, French, and by arrangement, in Japanese. If you get hungry, there's a restaurant on the main floor and two more options a short walk away
Other things to note
If you have physical limitations or don't like heat, we are happy to assist and take care of any parts of the process you don't like. We want you to feel comfortable and express your inner creativity.

We also offer Stained Glass classes! Check it out here: https://www.airbnb.ca/experiences/777124

We really enjoyed learning about and get a greater appreciation for glass blowing! Our pieces turned out very well. One thing that is good to know ahead of time, especially if you are coming from far away is that the finished work needs to go in a kiln overnight so it will have to be picked up another day.

With C-19 affecting our ability to celebrate our 25th anniversary in a normal fashion we took the decision to get away to a gorgeous cottage in Grenville-sur-la-Rouge (thanks Jody & Stacey!) and for an outing we came to learn how to do glass blowing. What an amazing experience and we highly recommend it! Great instructors, great C-19 protocols and a great experience! We cant wait to come back again!

Wow, this was an incredible experience! My husband and I were a little nervous going in as compete novices, but Chloe was so helpful, friendly, and fun that we are already looking to see what else we can learn with her. We highly recommend this class.

Wasn't sure what to expect when booking through airbnb. I found it difficult to contact them over the phone but also could have been because of covid but it all worked out great. The staff is extremely relaxed and friendly. My wife and I had a really good time and plan to go back for a 2nd visit! We also plan to book a session for another family member. This was a really good experience!

L’expérience est très intéressante et donne envie d’en savoir plus et de prendre des cours supplémentaires pour souffler le verre. L’équipe est très gentille! Vivement recommandé
