Our one-on-one personal glass experience is designed with the beginning glassblower in mind, while having plenty of room to expand in future sessions.  Whether you are an accomplished artist, or someone who has a hard time with drawing a straight line, our workshops are guaranteed to give you a unique experience which will make you feel like DaVinci for the day.

Work hand in hand with one of our personal instructors as they guide you through the steps to make your very own piece of Glass Art.  You will learn to gather molten glass out of the furnace, shape the glass with various glass working tools, as well as experience the amazing sensation of seeing your very own piece of Glass Art take shape as you blow your breath into the piece.

Team-1

Our instructors have worked with the youngest of youth and the oldest of the elderly in our workshops.

One of the greatest experiences is when a whole family can learn the fine art of glassblowing together.  All of our workshops remains very personalized "one-on-one" instruction, giving the student dedicated, focused attention throughout the glassblowing lesson.  You don't have to worry about being in a class of multiple people offering multiple distractions.

**please note**

To get the most out of the glassblowing experience and to give our instructors the ability to fully teach our students, we reserve up to 30 minutes for each student.  Therefore, we limit our 30-minute "Make Your Own" Session to one (1) participant only and our "One-On-One Hour" Experience to a maximum of two (2) participants.  In order to receive the best experience possible, we suggest to book as much time as possible per participant.

⊕ Safety and a fun experience are the two main priorities at Phoenix Studio & Gallery.  For the safety of our participants, we require they wear long pants and closed toe shoes for their workshop.  Short sleeved shirts are acceptable (and actually preferred), as we will provide necessary safety equipment for your arms.  Please wear only all natural fiber clothing as well (cotton, linen, denim, etc).  We ask that our participants arrive 5-10 minutes early to process paperwork and assure that we get started on time.

Hot Date Night!

Hot Date Night!

date-night-2016

"Date Night" is our newest addition to the Workshop Menu!

Give your sweetie a date to remember at one of the "Hottest" Date Destinations in Tampa.  The Date Night Workshop lasts roughly 40mins.  The instruction is "one-on-one" with the instructor, which means we will be working with each of you individually, but you are also encouraged to help each other through the process as well...making it a much more intimate experience.

Date Night occurs on the first Friday evenings of each month from 5-10pm.  It coincides with our "First Friday - Art in the Heights" Open House events.

Since we are working hand in hand with Cupid himself to make this a very special experience, you will be making Glass Hearts during the workshop.  Each of you will make a Glass Heart in the color of your choice.  We supply everything that is needed; we just expect you to supply the creativity and love.
