Walking the Warehouse/Arts District we stumbled upon this little gem. While we did not participate in the classes or demonstrations, we saw many beautiful glass objects for sale, including gorgeous jewelry, bowls, vases and other art pieces. Prices seemed reasonable for handcrafted work.

If you plan ahead you can sign up for various private art classes, including a two hour glass blowing session! We had so much fun. Our instructor was great, doing all the hard work to make it easy for us and we made six pieces between us. I can't wait to do it again.

I took the kids to watch the glassblowing at this studio. The people there are a bit prickly, but probably because they are afraid my kids were going to break something (they didn't). They did however, sit staring at the fire pits and glassworkers for about 15 minutes. Then they were ready to go. My older one is interested in taking a class when he reaches the minimum age of 10. We bought a colored glass goldfish Christmas ornament for $40. But they also have a 'garage sale' of imperfect pieces for less. Worth a stop!

Not often you can actually watch glass-blowing up close and personal, but here it is, just blocks away from the French Quarter. You can take a class...a little pricey...but you do end up with a glass piece that is worth the price of the class.

Also has a good studio with beautiful glass for sale, though bring your wallet. But it's a memorable experience. Worth the visit.

This was my first exposure to working with glass. I was a bit hesitant due to my lack of experience. The instructor was very knowledgeable and helpful. During the 2-hour experience, I made a great vase and two, awesome paperweights. You can readily influence the design, shape and color of your pieces. By the way, you will not be able to take your pieces with you the same day. Your finished pieces will need to chill out a day or two in the electronically-controlled annealer. If you're in New Orleans for a limited amount of time, the studio does offer convenient shipping to your home at an additional cost.
