Asheville Glass Center - a great place that offered several different kinds of classes, including a 30 minute basic class.
We had a choice of making a glass, Christmas ornament or a paperweight. I decided to make a glass and my husband made a bud vase.
We had a ton of fun and took away some super cool mementos. We really liked our instructor as he was very patient and really clear in explaining the process.
I think the next time we travel, we will look for another opportunity to do something similar. We loved the hands-on aspect and the chance to be creative and learn. We are super nerdy that way.
