“Great activity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

We recently took a 90 min. glass workshop and it was really a lot of fun. Our instructor Jeremy was really friendly, patient and encouraging. We made beautiful works of art (beware you have to come back the next day or so to pick it up) and it would be a great date idea or family outing. The studio is easy to find and parking is free if you park behind their building off the dead end of N. 5th St. There is street parking right out front but it's metered. Would highly recommend for anyone interested in learning how glass art is made and trying their hand at it too!

“Glass Blowing for everyone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

My wife and I took a glass blowing class on Saturday morning. We had never done anything like this before and Ben, the instructor was very helpful and patient, first showing us how to do it and then helping as needed through each step of the process. We had a choice of making a flower, ornament, or paper weight. All 5 of us in the class chose the flower. We took the beginner class, but there are classes for all skill levels. Highly recommend it.

“Fun and exciting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We did the 2-hour glass blowing class at Through the Fire (three adults and a 10-year-old). The instructors are talented and patient. We all had a wonderful time, and all four of us had excellent take-home products. I made one of those hanging balls with marbled colors, and a clear paperweight with swirls of colors and bubbles inside. Really fun. The only caveat is that you need to return the next day to pick up items after annealing, so if you are just passing through that could be an issue.
