Like a couple of other reviewers, I decided to forgo this activity which sounded like a unique, fun thing to do while visiting in a couple months. Their website does not list any schedules or prices for their classes so I emailed inquiring about two...More

I had visited here before but had never seen the glassblowers actually creating. It was fascinating. With a boom box as background music I watched as glass was turned into lovely creations. I was the only observer in the building but truly enjoyed the artists...More

We took the copper enameling class and had a blast. Cathy was our teacher and was so great. She took her time with us and was very patient. I ended up with some cool jewelry too. We will take another class soon.

Amazing works of art in glass! Not the best place to bring an active nine year old who likes to swing his coat around, however. Luckily, we got out without incident.

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts

Other reviewers said it was $155 for a two hour session. I went to their websites and the prices aren't posted there either.
