Private Lessons / Private Surveys

Private Lessons / Private Surveys

BAGI offers private one-on-one instruction in many of the same disciplines and techniques explored in our group classes and workshops, as well as private groups of 2-4 ("Private Survey").

Private Lessons (one-on-one)

These classes are tailored instructional classes, which means they are guided by your instructor. This is not for custom projects you want to make. If you working on a project, we are more than willing to connect you with local glass artists on a commission basis.

All private lessons or projects requiring special equipment or materials (large glory holes or kilns), color, coldworking, borosilicate flameworking, etc. may incur additional costs.

Discipline Cost of 1 lesson (2 hours) Bulk cost of 4 lessons (8 hours)
Glassblowing $289 $1,040
Flameworking (aka lampworking) $236 $850
Fusing $236 $850

Private Survey (small groups of 2-4)

Smaller group, more hands-on! Pure molten fun!  This class is designed for small groups and couples that would like to try something a little different and desire a lot of “hands-on”.  Each person attending will learn to use the basic tools of the glassblowing trade while creating a paperweight or flower, and either a vase or cup. This private session is a great intro to the glass art world.

$189/person, glassblowing only. For larger groups (5 or more), see our team building events page.
