What you'll do

If you would like more then 2 people in the party please message me about your party size we can talk about possibility or arrangements. Your glass experience will begin with a quick round of safety and rules.. Then right in to the hot molten fun.. We will jump right in to torch time and learning to talk to our glass.. This will be a crash coarse in a new language for many .. We will work on becoming comfortable with this new medium and then once your ready you can begin to create shapes and forms. I like to take each student to a personal spot and make what really speaks to them.. If they do not have anything they really wanna try then we can begin with basic formations and shapes .. hearts, drops and twists.. This experience is as much or as little as you want it to be. The glass rabbit hole is very very deep. i am 22 yrs in and no where near the bottom. its endless and every expanding in example, ideas, forms, shapes and colors. The endless possibilities are truly up to you and what u want to take away from your experience .. For some they are hooked and now will have to be come a glass blower even if its just a hobby.. that's how we all began .
see you all there!!
Annie

I have been perfecting my craft for over 22 years. i have been teaching it professionally for ten. I specialize in glass bead and jewelry making, i also have a strong passion for glass jewelry design. Each hand crafted one of a kind piece of wearable art is made with love and good intentions .. I feel that these energies are trapped in side of the glass once it becomes solid after creation. This is turn creates a special bond between both the person who buys it gifts it and wears is.. i feel like they are each my babies off in to the world to bring people love and happiness.

Where you'll be

Our studio is rustic and in side of an old style camping trailer.. The quaint environment is nice to learn a new trade. I am a master bead maker and can teach you many many wonderful tricks of the trade .. In fact i enjoy very much seeing others learn to make the items i teach them.. Its so fulfilling to know others now share the knowledge and gifts of alchemy.

We’re a family of 5 up at Lake George for a few days and looking for something to do on a rainy day. This was great! Annie is really a skilled artisan and an excellent teacher. Can’t wait to go back. All of my kids felt that this was the highlight of our week.

This was a great experience, we learned a lot of basic techniques and we were encouraged to try and make anything we wanted. Annie is very passionate about her craft and she was there to assist us if we had any questions or wanted guidance.

She has a very good way of teaching and that is by showing you the basics. She lets you try making whatever you want.

We learned so much about glass blowing from Annie and had such a great time doing it with her! Anytime we had any issues she was quick to help us and get us back on track! We loved our experience and cannot wait to do it again!

This was such a great experience! Annie was very welcoming and informative. We were so immersed, we ended up staying for 5 hours! We learned a lot about Annie's background and her deep passion for glassblowing. It left us inspired to seek out more practice in the art once we head back home. Thank you Annie!
