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 zone

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:).

This experience could not have been better. The hosts are so patient and educational and you get to walk away with your own creations. It is well worth the money and more! I would highly recommend this to anyone in the area

This is a truly unique experience, and something you would never come across or even think to seek out. Danny was eager to share his knowledge and make sure you had all the tips and tricks to make some lovely pieces. If you got lost or stuck he was totally reassuring and very attentive to your progress. They want you to succeed and have a positive experience. We left with some nice gifts, too! Bear in mind that, depending on the timing, you may need to come back the next day to pick up your projects after they have been kinl-temperd. Would recommend!

This is a blast! We had been wanting to try glass blowing for a while now and these guys knocked it out of the park. Sign up! Just do it! And bring good footwear!

If you have a chance to partake in this experience, I would highly recommend it. The staff is knowledgeable, thorough, and fun to talk to. The classes are small and very safe for young teenagers to adults. The creations coming put of this shop are second to none as well. We loved it and will definitely come back for another class with Elev8! This is the quintessential Colorado Springs experience.

Anyone interested in glassblowing like my husband and I and would love to learn more about it and just get hands on with it , this is a great experience! Had so much fun, we didn’t want to leave. May become a new hobby. The shop was great and we were able to make our own pieces to take home.
