Taylor Backes has a non-profit teaching facility which is called GLASS ART INSTITUTE TEACHING FACILITY.

We offer glass classes where two people can be scheduled in a one-hour block of time.  Here's how we describe our classes:    

We offer classes that are actually a glass making experience. We call them "Make Your Own" because you have an opportunity to handle, add color, reheat, and manipulate molten glass under the careful supervision of your instructor.

Select one of 6 different objects you can make: Pumpkin, flower, paperweight, heart, starfish, or an egg. We also offer blown vases, bowls, ornaments, glasses, etc for an additional fee. 

After selecting your colors, the instructor will do a demonstration. He will then gather glass on a steel rod and hand it to you so you can make your object. This means shaping, adding color, reheating, and manipulating the glass. Your finished piece must cool for at least 24 hours before you can pick it up. 

Cost: $90/Person for approximately 1 hour.

Alternate glass blowing +$35/Person

A typical class for two people takes roughly an hour.  If you would like to discuss schedules or other topics about our program, please give the studio a call and ask for Etta. She will be happy to work with you.  If you send your number, she can give you a call.

Thanks for your inquiry.
