These classic paperweights make beautiful gifts...or start your own collection! Select your shape and colors from our examples, and participate in the sculpting process, while John does the steps requiring more experience. Beginners are welcome.
They are approximately 3 inches in diameter, and contain sparkly dichroic glass, glass cane, and encased bubbles. Additionally, we will engrave initials, a name, or brief sentiment and the date on the bottom of your paperweight.
Paperweights are made with guests one-on-one, one-at-a-time, and we can make 2 to 3 per hour. Your piece must anneal and have the bottom surface ground and polished, so you won't be able to take it with you the day of the event. Paperweights may be picked up at a later time, or shipped for a fee.
We do allow teens to participate, with accompanying parent if under eighteen. Younger participants are on a case by case basis.
Dates for making paperweights will be posted here in the spring. Enrollment begins at that time. To be placed on our email list to receive workshop announcements, send us an email.
