Trying New Things | Glassblowing

Hi Lovely!

I am very excited to share a recent new experience! I tried out glass blowing! I’ve never tried anything like it before. Basically, you have an experienced artist there to help you make your piece of art. You choose the piece, the style, and the colors. Then you get to work.

You heat the glass, roll it around, heat it up, etc. At some point you add the color. To be honest it all is a little bit of a blur. It’s hard balancing making something and not burning yourself.

I made an adorable pink and white bowl. Check it out!

So, what was my final thought? We go now to the Hilary Scale.The Hilary Scale

my opinion

Loved it! It was definitely a fun experience. I would recommend it to anyone wanting a fun activity. Plus, you get a fun souvenir! The one down side is that it is a little pricey. Maybe save it for a special occasion.

I went to Tacoma Glassblowing Studio. The artists were awesome and made the experience a ton of fun. Be sure to check them out if you live in the area!

  1. Omg, that looks like so much fun and I LOVE your finished masterpiece!! <3<3 I'll have to give it a try. They have it in St. Petersburg, which is a beach city not too far from me. I am scared that I might breathe in instead of blow out, though! Was that a concern for you? lol. Btw, you looked so stinkin' cute!!

    • It was a ton of fun! You only blow for a couple of minutes. The artist just kept saying, “Blow!! Harder! Harder! Good!” so I didn’t really have issues haha. I mostly just kept making jokes during the whole thing. 🙂

    • It was a ton of fun! I really enjoyed the artists we worked with. They made it an even more unique experience. If you ever have a chance to try it out I definitely suggest you do. 🙂

  2. Awesome! I’m always mesmerized watching glass blowers at Renn Faires. I never thought of taking a class.

    P.S. I’d love for you to add this to my Venture Link Up next Friday (3/4).

Leave some love!
