EDITED BRUTALLY SHORTER: “I am a professional glass maker and have worked with glass professionally since 2006. I have extensive experience guiding glassblowing classes, welcoming individual participants as well as groups. I create unique and personalized glass events.

Twice the hands-on time of any other Bay Area Glassmaking Class & my advanced glassmaking skills combined, make these classes the best value glassmaking experiences available! You can take a look at my resume on my website, Facebook and Instagram where you can also see what past students created and what projects I am currently working on! “ Education: BA in Glass, Glasswork & study experiences in Venice Murano (Italy), Corning & Pilchuck.

The format of the day is purposely kept flexible so that your personal interests can be taken into account. Jason is highly technically skilled and will instruct you to achieve your goals for the day, which you will set together with him at the start of the day.

Get in touch and we will create it for you on the calendar! - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Important notice: Cancellation Policy While we try to be as flexible and accommodating as possible : Cancellations or date change requests are best made at least a week prior to your booking. This is because it is often not possible to fill a class cancelled on shorter notice than that and Jason enters a rental agreement with the glassblowing studio when he accepts your booking. As such, guests must cancel 7 days prior to the date of the experience, whether to cancel attendance completely or to move dates. By purchasing, you will be agreeing to this policy. Thank you!
