Det skal I lave

While visiting the artist's studio, you learn the process of blowing glass, and glass blowing techniques including taking a gather, marvering, blow'n-cap, and shaping glass. The workshop is very hands-on, focused on the process instead of the final product. With experienced glass artists, you make 2 to 3 small objects such as a paperweight, ornament/float, and/or drinking glass, to take home.

Glassblowing is a team work. We strongly recommend to experience this with another person. If you are solo, you may still book a spot. However, the single booker should expect to finish earlier.

Best to wear a cotton top and cotton pants. Open-toed shoes are not allowed. Please bring a pair of sunglasses and a face mask with you.

Be prepared to be hot and sweaty, and to have fun! BYOB if you like.

We can be flexible. Feel free to reach out to us to schedule a specific date and time or a private group if you don't see it on our calendar.

Other things to note...
Your pieces will be ready to be picked up in 24 hours. Shipping available with additional fee.

We are two local glass artists who have been blowing glass collectively for 39 years, 5 months, and 23 days, and counting... When we create our glass work, two of us as a team make it by hand, one piece at a time. We love colors and glass, and would like to share our passion and knowledge of glassblowing with you. We have a cute shop dog, French bulldog, Kaiju, welcoming you!

Her skal du være

We will have the workshop in our small private glass studio in the backside of our house in the very quiet neighborhood. It's surrounded by the beautiful organic vegetable/flower and herb gardens.

There aren't enough stars to give these two special people. Motoko and Joshua are a great team of glass wizards. They were well organized, super friendly, above accommodating, and committed to making my first time glass class fun. A very hands on class, I couldn't believe what I was doing in such a short period of time! The process was explained thoroughly, I was supported in my efforts throughout to give me the satisfaction of actually working with the glass and creating something from nothing more than a hot molten blob. They went the extra mile on numerous things: adding a class space for me; making sure I was keeping hydrated; taking excellent pictures to document my experience (as a solo traveler, this is often a challenge); offering encouragement; showing me their impressive garden. It was time that I will never forget. Thank you, Motoko and Joshua, for making a lifelong dream come true!

A lot more hands-on than I expected; great sequence of three mini-projects in ascending order of complexity. When you watch a demo of experts doing this, it looks so straightforward. When you try it yourself you realize how many different things there are to keep in mind and gain a real appreciation for artists who do this well. Joshua and Motoko were clear, friendly, and encouraging even when you are clearly blowing it (or in my case clearly _not_ blowing a successful bubble of air into the glass). This activity should be required follow up for anyone after visiting the Chihuly gardens or the Tacoma glass museum. So glad to have found out about this activity.

This experience was amazing! Motoko and Joshua were incredible hosts and so kind and helpful. We enjoyed the hands on experience and loved that we got to actually make things to take home. Highly recommend!

Experience Glass is a great introduction to glassblowing where you jump right in and learn through doing. Motoko and Joshua show you exactly what to do, and talk you through every step in the process so you have a successful glass piece in the end.

Went by myself. Motoko and Joshua made me feel very welcome and walked through all the basics. Its very clear they have done this many times before and have their class down to a solid, eductional routine. Had a great time trying out something new.

This experience with Joshua and Motoko was hands-down the best experience we had in Seattle. It was incredibly personal (just my sister and I!), and we got to bring home three glass pieces we made ourselves. Motoko and Joshua were very knowledgeable and provided guidance every step of the way, but the pieces we created (with the exception of the second blowing while we were shaping) were 100% our own work and they did not do it for us. It was a blast, and we loved visiting their hot shop.
