Blue Sage Studios
Be sure to stay up to date by checking out my blog at http://bluesagestudios.blogspot.com . I am also keeping a blog on process and pieces I make in the studio. FInd it at gafferslog.blogspot.com
At Blue Sage Studios we offer glassblowing lessons. Glassblowing lessons are $85 an hour. We can schedule your lessons just about any time. The studio takes care of all the supplies and you get to keep what you make. During the typical first lesson an individual will learn the basics of movement and safety in the studio. We then create a two gather “wine topper” paperweight and a flower. At Blue Sage Studios we employ the tell, show, do method of teaching. We first talk through the process, demonstration the process and then the student does their own piece. Everyone learns at different speeds and levels and we tailor fit your glass experience . While not everything turns out as expected, a good time is usually had by all.
We also offer studio rental for folks who are glassblowers. Studio rental is $60 an hour. We have two glory holes, a #300 furnace, four annealhers, and all the tools of the trade.
We offer glassblowing demonstrations for the public. Any time we are working folks are welcome to come in and watch. Glassblowing is captivating for young and old alike. We host parties at the studio as well. Birthdays, anniversaries, wedding receptions, even just a “date night” can be scheduled. Large or small groups are no trouble. We even have parking for a tour bus.
During a typical birthday party with twenty guests or so; the hostess will bring in hors d'oeuvres, drinks, cake and ice cream. The guest of honor will pick out color and a basic shape (a ruffle bowl). Our artists will create the bowl while everyone watches. It makes for a really lovely party.
We do not charge for our demonstrations but we do hope the special piece we create for the guest of honor will be purchased.
