Our “Blow Your Own” sessions have become “the” thing to do! You can come and work with a Master glass artist to make your own creation. You work on your piece one-on-one with the artist. You will learn and participate in the skills involved in making your creation. These are all “hands-on” events. All clear and colored glass is included. You will gain a sense of accomplishment and a new appreciation of this age-old art form through this interactive experience. We schedule time slots on Saturdays from September through May. Our studio is open and we are blowing glass year-’round, but it is too hot to have our events during the summer months. Our schedule for available dates will be posted one month before the event on our Facebook page.
*****Each piece that is made has to be cooled from 2000 degrees to room temperature. This takes a full day. Your creations can be picked up on Monday afternoon or we can arrange to have them shipped to you for an additional nominal fee.******* Rosetree will not be responsible for any pieces left at the studio for over 30 days.
Time slots are 15-20 minutes each within 10:00-12:00 and 1:00-5. Each slot length depends on which object is being made. Time slots are individual time for one on one participation with the artist. There are multiple times available during the schedule. The expected time within the studio, including orientation, is anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. Call the studio to reserve your specific time slot. 504 366 3602

We also book parties after hours in the studio. Why copy someone else’s artwork, when you can create your own! With 15 or more people, everyone in your party can experience the “magic” of glassblowing. Bring food and spirits, and enjoy yourselves in a private setting. Call us at the studio to arrange the details.
Starting in September 2015, we began our Afternoon Appointment Program. You can “Blow Your Own” during studio hours on Monday and Friday afternoons. Please call first to arrange your time slot on either day.
All groups larger than 6 people for Afternoon Appointments or Saturday “Blow Your Own” Events will be required to leave a credit card to hold your spots. If you do not show up, your card will be charged for the full amount of the lost classes. Cancellations need to be called in at least 24 hours prior to the reserved time.
