Glass Blowing San Diego
Channel your creativity through the element of fire at Glass Blowing San Diego (120 Upas Street). Whether your goal is to fashion a series of holiday salad bowls or an elaborate dichro smoking pipe, blowmaster Cary Slone, who’s worked with molten glass for ten years, can get you started with the melted medium in his Hillcrest “Glory Hole” (that’s the actual term). You’ll make a paperweight, a drinking cup, and a free-form sculpture, all in the first two-hour lesson ($170). Additional private lessons are $75 per hour (minimum two hours). First-time students must pay in advance with a credit card.
