Learn to Blow Glass!

The best thing to do in Duluth! Take glass blowing classes at Lake Superior Art Glass and learn a variety of glass blowing techniques.

This unique experience will create memories and mementos that will last a lifetime! All of our classes are designed for beginners and do not require prior experience with glass. Classes begin with highly detailed demonstrations and explanations of tools, safety, and history. Tap into your inner artist by blending colors and using clear glass to magnify your design while creating beautiful art. Glass cools slowly in a kiln overnight and is available for pick up the next day or can be shipped right to your door (inquire for shipping price).

Class Details/Policies

  1. 1. Why do I need to sign a waiver?

    Working with molten glass does come with inherent risks. We try to minimize these risks, as your saftey is our number one priority, but they are impossible to eliminate. Listening to our trained instructors during your time in the studio is very important. All class participants will need to sign a waiver prior to entering the studio. For anyone under the age of 18, a parent or guardian will need to sign the waiver. 
  2. 2. When will my class project be ready for pick up or shipment?

    All class projects cool slowly in a kiln overnight & are available for pick up the next business day. Projects can be shipped to your home for an additional fee. We try to get shipments safely packaged and shipped out within a week of your classtime.  
  3. 3. Can I expect to be able to sit during my class?

    Unfortunely, due to safety reasons, we are unable to allow for seated Flamework or Hot Shop classes.  Please be prepared to stand for the full class length. 
  4. 4. What should I bring to the class?

    Please bring a bottle of water or a beverage to stay hydrated during your class.
    Dress in layers as our studio varies the temperature. Working in the studios can get warm.
    Closed-toe shoes are required in the studios.
  5. 5. Can I combine discounts?

    Discounts cannot be combined.
  6. 6. What if I'm going to be late for my class?

    If you arrive more than 15 minutes after your class start time, your class will be forfeited and considered a no-show. Please contact us if you cannot make it to your class on time. Please see our Cancellation/Rescheduling Policy listed below. 
  7. 7. Can Grandma/Mom/Cousin/Child watch my class?

    Please note that only those registered for Hotshop and/or Flameworking classes are allowed in the studios, no exceptions. This includes children that are not registered for the class. Children cannot wait unattended as our staff cannot commit to attending the store and the responsibility of watching a child.  
    Those who do not need supervision can watch your class from our viewing areas outside the studios. 
    If you are under the age of 18, you must have a parent or guardian on the premises during the class.
