Learn to blow glass at the Liquid Arts Experience!

There is nothing quite like the feeling of melting glass, and if you've always wanted to try your hand at lampworking (glassblowing with a torch), then let the team of experienced glassblowers at the Elev8 Premier studio guide you on your first journey into the art of the flame. The Elev8 Premier glassblowing studio was founded in 2004 in Colorado Springs, and collectively our team has decades of experience in making production glass for the Silver Surfer Vaporizer and beyond, as well as in making beautiful artistic pieces or 'headies'. 

Purchasing this product will grant you one Liquid Arts Experience class at the Elev8 Premier studio in Colorado Springs, but you must also fill out the form below to request a date for your class. We can't run a Liquid Arts Experience for just a single person, so if you are buying a class for a single student try to request a day where at least one slot is already filled, otherwise we may need to contact you to reschedule your booking. We also recommend that you check out the Glassblowing 101 link below, and we strongly recommend that you watch the Safety Video embedded below before coming in for your class. 


Click this link to check the calendar before filling out the form below!

Please note that we typically only do classes on the weekend. Also if you are purchasing a class for a single student then you must sign up for one of the days which says LAE 4 OPEN (or less than 4) as we cannot run a Liquid Arts Experience class for only a single student. 

Before or after you buy your tickets, please fill out this form by clicking the button below:


We recommend that you check out our primer course by clicking the button below. This isn't necessary, but it's great to have some foundational knowledge before you come in so that you can make the most of your time with us:

You should also watch our Safety Video below before purchasing one of these classes. We will watch this video again together in class, but we strongly recommend that you watch it at least once before you come to the studio for your class:

If you must reschedule or cancel, you NEED TO KNOW:

  • 50% of payment is non refundable if you cancel (so make sure you want to do this before purchasing!)
  • Reschedule within 48 hours with no fee.
  • Rescheduling between 48-24 hours before your scheduled class incurs a 10% rescheduling fee.
  • Rescheduling within 24 hours of your scheduled class incurs a 20% rescheduling fee.
  • If you do not show up, you miss the class and the cost is non-refundable.  The blower must still be paid to be there.

In this beginner class we will go over the basics of glassblowing.  We will go over the parts of the torch and the different types of flame: neutral, reduction and oxidizing.  We will go over the safety of glassblowing in this class so that we have fun with no injuries.  Basically hot glass burns and sharp glass cuts. 

In this glassblowing class we will also go over marble making and pendant making.  We will only go over the basics here as there is a lot to learn about how the glass reacts as it is heated in the flame.  Adding loops for the first time can be challenging so this is why our instructor will be able to finalize any piece you are having difficulty with.  

Note that glassblowing for the first time is FUN, but it also takes a lot of brain power, so don't be surprised if you feel drained afterwards!  Your brain is doing things it has not done before and is being pushed hard.

What you get with a Liquid Arts Experience glassblowing class:  

  • 4 hours of studio time.  You will be on the torch for about 3 hours as there is safety and project lessons that we have to go over. 
  • Eye protection is supplied
  • Fuel and oxygen are supplied
  • Torch is supplied
  • Glass is supplied

Considerations to take:

  • Dress warm on cold days as we have a very good exhaust system so if it's cold outside, it's cold inside.
  • Must wear shoes
  • Bring some snacks if you do not want vending machine snacks
  • Be prepared to stand for 4 hours

How It Works When You Buy This Class:

  • Your order will be passed along to Elev8 Premier.  The manager will contact you within 2 business days to schedule your time.
  • You can book nearly any Saturday or Sunday if you buy a pair of tickets, or you see 4-1 open slots in the calendar
  • You will be contacted via phone to discus the times.
  • Our studio is only open for classes on the weekends as we are a working studio and the staff is in production mode.

"Hey guys, was great time for us too we had a good laugh, it was nice to get some guidance and also to be allowed to just play around with the glass without having to follow a tight frame. I would totally recommend it and will rate it highly. You guys were super friendly etc so thank you."

"This by far has been one of the best days out I've had in Colorado Springs. The instructor was friendly and you could tell he knew his stuff and really enjoys his work. He took the time to carefully demonstrate and gave me plenty of opportunity to practice all while teaching me about glass blowing. The owner is lovely as well and stopped by to chat and I left with a goody bag of cool stuff as well as the glasswork I got to make. 10/10 would absolutely recommend and will definitely come back!"

"We came looking for a fun thing to do in Colorado Springs since it was going to be cold and boy did we find it. We got the opportunity to make different objects out of glass and the staff was so helpful and friendly! They not only helped us with our work but genuinely cared to get to know us. Elev8 definitely brought the heat!"

"It was a great experience! The instructor was very helpful and never too far from where we were. We got to keep the marbles and pendants that we made and even a few that he made when he was showing us new things. Would definitely do it again!"

"Such a cool experience!! The instructor was amazing he taught nice and slowly for beginners to easily pick up on. I have a new found respect for glassblowers!! Would definitely recommend this experience to others."

"Fantastic experience. A great balance of structure and freedom to create"

"My mom and I are visiting from Texas, and this is something she has always wanted to do! Everyone at Elev8 were super welcoming and friendly! We had so much fun with our instructor Sean and made some really neat pieces. If you’re in Colorado Springs, you definitely have to check these guys out! Thank you again

    Thank you to the whole team for a freakin badass experience!! We had a blast, learned some cool techniques and made some friends. I would recommend this class to anyone interested! We went for my Husbands Birthday and My In-Laws joined us, everyone could not stop talking about the awesome glass we got to make. We are already trying to plan our next visit back to learn more!
