Glass Workshops

Is this something I can do?

We have had folks as young as 5 and as old as 88 (so far) come out and give this a try.  Algar Dole (gaffer) has been doing this for over 30 years and been partnered up with the farm for over 20 years.  He now has a small glass shop at our farm where he instructs short workshops (1 - 3 hours) several times a year.  His beautiful glass-workings are displayed and sold in our gallery.
