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.
Nov 26-Dec 7, Mon - Fri
Gather up some friends, family, co-workers, Scouts...and take a glass blowing lesson. Class slots are available from 10 am to 6 pm.
