How to Find Glassblowing Classes

Learn how to find glassblowing classes from expert Ed Donovan in this Howcast video.


Hi, my name is Ed Donovan I'm here at DC GlassWorks. You can find us at We are a public access glass blowing facility, we also do metal and metal-casting and welding. We are primarily a teaching facility. We want to share with people the magic of glass blowing. It is an amazing substance and today I'm gonna be talking to you about glass-blowing. To find a glass-blowing class, the web has become an essential tool. Uh, DC Glass Works is on the web at and, uh, I think if you do a web search, uh, for glass blowing in your area, you might find your university, uh, will have a glass blowing facility that they will possibly let you use. Uh, there's also probably some private studios that if you get to know, the owner's might let you come in and use their facilities. More than likely, you're gonna find a private studio that is doing glass blowing in your area. They may or may not offer classes. You can certainly approach them under the guise of being an assistant or learning through, um, helping as an assistant, uh, if they don't offer any type of a class, and, uh, also the way that I started, when I came to the area there was, uh, art shows and in the art show was glass and I just looked at the label to who was producing the glass and that was how I actually started my web search. I was actually looking for a particular artist and I found out where that, where that was that they were working. Uh, it's a pretty expensive endeavor to set up a glass studio, uh, but just doing a little bit of research, you'll probably find some way to, uh, get some information on glass blowing in your area and whether or not classes are offered.
