My 20+ years of experience blowing glass throughout the United States coupled with my wife Lorraine’s drive for all things Pacific Northwest, make for not only a fascinating marriage but an opportunity for others to learn about both of our worlds. It is nothing new to find either of us rambling on about our love for the area and the art of glassblowing. Now we have combined the two in an Experience we would love to share with you.

“To watch something as hard and fragile as glass become malleable, shape it into something only you envision, and then have it return to that same hard, fragile state, is pure magic. From the first time I saw that process I knew that’s what I wanted to do 24/7.”

We loved our afternoon with James! He and wife were super friendly and knowledgeable. They even went out of their way to get drinks that matched our preferences. It was amazing to learn that glass blowing is such a big thing in the area and that we were able to partake in it. We learned how to do some glass blowing basics with personal instruction and practice. Such a wonderful experience--it made us want to continue learning more about glass blowing. We strongly recommend the experience!

They were friendly and welcoming. The spread of wine, grapes, and pastries was very delicious. I was contacted before hand to get my wine preference. James made the whole instruction very easy to understand and the try it yourself part less intimidating. Lori was amazing taking pictures and ensuring I had anything I needed. I would do this again and recommend to anyone else.

James gave us a really great experience in his home and we had a great time learning about glass blowing and it’s history in Portland. The wine and croissants were a great addition to the experience. And learning how to manipulate molten glass was really fun! I would definitely recommend this experience to anyone feeling crafty.

Over a glass of wine we were taught the history of glassblowing. Next, James introduced us to his studio and the tools he uses for glass blowing. He showed us how to make a swizzle stick, giving us a step-by-step lesson. He then let us each make one, guiding us through the process. It really was a glimpse into the life of a glass blower, and was very informative and fun. If you have any interest in glassblowing, this will stoke it further.
