Private Glassblowing Lesson - 1 Basic Piece

Select Date and Travelers
1 traveler
    What to Expect
    With the help of our friendly and professional staff, you'll have fun creating your own glass art and take home the perfect Maui souvenir. We tailor the experience to each 'guest artist', guiding you through every step of the process to make sure that you come out with a piece that you love. Since glassblowing is a team sport by its very nature, our lessons make the perfect activity to involve groups of friends or the whole family. No matter the skill level, everyone can be an artist at Moana Glass! You will learn about glass colors, glass blowing and the necessary equipment,  plus get your hands dirty and make a beautiful piece of glass art! 
    The basic pieces included in this booking are: Starfish, Ornament, Heart or Drinking Glass.  There are upgraded options available that you can chose at the studio once you arrive.  
    • Starfish:  This cute sculpture is deceptively difficult, but fits the island theme perfectly
    • Ornament:  This colorful round ball is a great keepsake that can be used as a holiday decoration or year round to catch light and add beauty to your space.
    • Heart:  The Heart sculpture is a great gift for someone you love or a paperweight that you can cherish yourself.
    • Drinking Glass:  This colorful and fun drinking glass can be used every day and always remind you of great times on Maui

    The fish is the largest items they have available right now. I think they plan on more at some point. No waves or whale tails and no turtles I believe those pieces are more complex. Ryan Staub does sell these items though... More
