Grand Rapids Glassblowing Studio offers workshops where participants may work with John to make:
Glass Ornaments (non-blowing inflation; spring and fall)
Glass Paperweights (spring and fall)
Glass Pumpkins (non-blowing inflation; fall)
These workshops are generally offered in the spring from about mid-March until just before Mothers’ Day, and in the fall from about mid-October until early December. We are closed in summer and winter.
Workshops are scheduled on weekends and sometimes on Thursdays. We do not do evening workshops.
We do not offer glassblowing classes, nor do we do demonstrations.
We will enroll parties of up to 4 people; participants must be at least 12 years old.
Please review our workshop descriptions on their separate pages on this website.
We create a schedule for a workshop, and then email that announcement to those who are on our email list, and post a link on our Facebook page.
Enrollment begins when the email is sent and we have posted on Facebook; enrollment is on a first come, first served basis. There is no pre-enrollment
Potential participants reply to the email or follow the Facebook link to request enrollment, giving:
--Dates their party is available
--Total number of glass objects a party will make
--Number of people in the party (limit 4)
Enrollment requests must contain the complete information described above. Be advised that our workshops generally fill within 1-2 hours of the email/posting.
Enrollment is via email only: no phone calls, nor other messaging, and there is no pre-enrollment.
We do not have gift certificates for workshops.
To be placed on our email list for future workshop opportunities, send us an email with that request.
