Garden reed: decorative glass for the garden

The Garden Reed is a low-stress, personal, and immersive class designed by the founders of the Glass Academy. The reed is about 8 to 10 inches long, with your choice of a twisted, wavy, curled, or straight stem. Get creative! In this class, you will experiment with a variety of tools. If you want to create ridges, bumps, and texture, you'll use a mold. For a smooth round finish, you'll use a marver.  From there, you can twist, pull, or stretch the reed to your desired shape, giving it character and style!

You will make one Garden Reed per ticket purchased. If you would like to make more than one, you are welcome to purchase an additional ticket. Or come back again; our classes are repeatable!

We offer a $12 guest ticket which must be purchased if you'd like to bring a guest to watch your class, or if you don't want to make a product, but would like to watch the class from the "audience". Everyone in attendance MUST purchase either a class ticket or a guest ticket. This allows us to prepare the space accordingly. When purchasing a guest ticket, please put the desired class date and time in the notes.
