O que você fará

You will learn the basics of lampworking AKA glassblowing. The main difference is glassblowing is done with a very large oven called a glory hole, while lampworking uses a torch. This is a 4-hour class and about 1 hour is spent training you on safety and techniques. This is split up throughout the experience. You will spend about a full 3 hours on the torch playing with molten glass. In the class, we can go over basic items like an implosion or a mushroom marble, pendants, glass ice cubes and other more simple to make items. Glassblowing is freaking fun and amazing, but it is not easy at the start. Be warned, you may experience too much fun, melting glass in fire is just plain cool! Another project we have been working on to incorporate is trying to make a pipe with you for a small added cost. It takes a good amount of time to make one from scratch so we have pre-made pipe slugs you can pick from so we can whip it up and potentially add a marble you made to it in a timely fashion. The pre-made slugs do cost a little extra as it takes more labor, but you get a really cool extra special piece. With this added option the teacher will be the one making the pipe towards the end of the class if not after the class so all who still need help can get the help they need.

We use an ozone generator nightly to sanitize the work facility to ensure a healthy work zon
Other things to note
You will be working in a working glass studio. There may be blowers working around you. Have fun watching them, just stand out of there way as they are unpredictable animals :)

I am a self-taught glass artist that started nearly 15 years ago. We have a 14 station studio and 3 lathes. This is a working studio so there could be glassblowers working near you also. We make all the glass for the Silver Surfer Vaporizer and Elev8 Premier Glass that we sell worldwide. You will either be working with Sean H., Jeff E. or me, Steve:).

It was a great experience! The instructor was very helpful and never too far from where we were. We got to keep the marbles and pendants that we made and even a few that he made when he was showing us new things. Would definitely do it again!

My mom and I are visiting from Texas, and this is something she has always wanted to do! Everyone at Elev8 were super welcoming and friendly! We had so much fun with our instructor Sean and made some really neat pieces. If you’re in Colorado Springs, you definitely have to check these guys out! Thank you again 😊

Absolutely awesome experience. Everyone at the Elev8 shop made us feel really welcome from the moment we arrived. Our instructor was very knowledgeable and friendly. While there was obviously some instruction time where he showed us techniques, a lot of the time was spent actually melting glass with a torch and making different items. This was a top notch experience. I HIGHLY recommend Elev8 for this course and for really neat glass pieces. I would be down to take a second course if I get back to Colorado again.

Such an awesome experience that you can’t really get anywhere else. We left with unique pendants that we made ourselves. I highly recommend giving this a try!

My friend and I had an awesome time here. Saw it in passing and it ended up being one of the highlights of our trip. We definitely felt like part of the family for a day! It was an all-around awesome experience! Very inviting space and employees, patient teacher, and A1 hospitality... They also love Vets! 10 out of 10 would do it again 👌🏾
