Discovered by accident, the art of glassblowing dates back centuries. Today, local studios offer fun classes, so you can create your own unique work of art. Louisville glassblowing studios near our Louisville apartments include:

Fire Studio & Gallery 

The Fire Studio & Gallery began in Bullitt County in 2014. It moved to Louisville seven years later. The glass artists boast over 70 years of combined experience and create unique pieces sold in galleries and gift shops across North America. In addition, they’ll help you create a masterpiece. Before getting started, you’ll choose your project and colors. Mike will perform the hot, technical part, while you use your breath to bring your piece to life. 

Flame Run

When Brook Forrest White Jr. enrolled in Centre College, he had no idea that an elective class would change his career path. He took hot glass classes to fulfill an art requirement. Brook quickly found a new passion, and today is the proud owner of Flame Run. It’s where he and his team create everything from unique paperweights to chandeliers. The shop also offers fun classes for all abilities. You can choose from an array of projects, which take anywhere from 15 to 45 minutes to complete. 

Payton Glass Activity Center 

A hands-on studio, the Payton Glass Activity Center invites everyone to come and bring out their inner artist. Don’t miss Flame It. This challenging and intense session offers plenty of fun as you try your hand at the torch. While the owner will guide you, you’re encouraged to make at least 90 percent of the piece. Be sure and arrive twenty minutes early to select your project.
