Most classes are $20 per person plus the cost of the materials (kit) for the class.

We hold classes at Pumpkin Glass generally on Thursday evenings from 6:00pm-8:30pm and on Saturdays in the morning and afternoon. These classes are project based per class; meaning students sign up for one class to make a particular project. Projects may or may not be completed during the class time, but students learn all the techniques necessary to complete the project on there own at home. All tools are provided during class time for the students to make the project unless otherwise specified in the class description. If a student doesn't finish the project during class, they may come in during normal shop hours to finish a class project using our tools if they desire.
Private Group Classes and Individual Instruction:
Pumpkin Glass has offerings especially for groups looking to celebrate by making a fun project. These projects are all beginner skill level so students learn to make a piece of jewelry but can focus on conversation and fun at the same time. Prices are per person and include the cost of the materials. A minimum of 4 people is required for these group classes and is payable at the time the reservation is made. You are welcome to bring in food and drink for your group, just let us know so we can have an area prepared. Click here on Private Parties to see party project choices. In addition to the special offerings for groups, most of our scheduled or past classes can be taught as a group class. These classes require 4 or more people and can be scheduled at the regular $20 per person class fee plus the applicable kit fee for materials.
Classes for 1 to 3 people are chargeable at $20 per hour for the class fee plus the cost of materials. If you are not interested in a specific class but there is a skill or project you would like help with, we are happy to sit down with you on an individual basis and go over whatever you wish at the $20 per hour fee.
In addition, we also have a choice of three projects that can be made by appointment without a minimum number of people for $25 each.
