Take a Class
We offer a variety of classes and workshops for all skill levels. Our class formats have been designed with careful consideration of your safety, what makes a fun experience and a realistic understanding of what is achievable with little to no experience.
♦ TASTE OF GLASSBLOWING: This is our “crash course” to check glassblowing off of your bucketlist. You’ll be paired with an experienced instructor for 20 minutes who will acquaint you with the studio, teach you about the material and guide you through making a small souvenir of your own. Click here to learn more about Taste of Glassblowing. ($75/person)
♦ PRIVATE LESSONS: For a more in-depth lesson in glassblowing, 1-2 participants can engage in a private lesson for 2 hours. Your instructor will still help you with the fundamentals but don’t expect her to make the piece for you. Your skills or lack-there-of will be on display so we encourage you to work within some manageable boundaries. Click here to learn more about our private lessons. ($350/session)
♦ PRIVATE WORKSHOPS: Groups of 6 or more can book a private workshop in the style of our Taste of Glassblowing classes. Click here to learn more about our private workshops. ($75/person)
♦ MULTI-WEEK COURSE: Those seeking complete independence in glassblowing should jump right into our multi-week courses. These classes start from square one and build you towards renting our studio equipment to practice or make your own work, independent of an instructor. Glassmaking takes years to master so don’t expect to be cranking out masterpieces in your first few months. Click here to learn more about our multi-week courses. ($600/four 4-hr sessions. 16hrs total.)
All Ages ** Currently Suspended Until Fall **
♦ SAND CASTING: This class is one of our family-friendly offerings but it is loads of fun for adults, too! Learn all about glass casting in this workshop where you will make a “negative” impression in sand using all sorts of toys, letters, and critters. Then watch as your instructors ladle molten glass into the void to create a unique glass tile or sculpture for you to keep. Click here to learn more about sandcasting.
♦ Fun With Fusing: This class is for ages 5+ (due to broken glass being a material used) and can be lots of fun for adults, too! This alternative style of glassmaking involves layering sheets of glass to construct your design. Once assembled, your instructor will place inside of a kiln to fuse overnight. Final projects can be “2D” such as magnets, pet portraits or jewelry or 3D items such as spoon rests or hanging mobiles. Click here to learn more about glass fusing.

Did an intro to glassmaking class here. I can't draw a stick figure yet tomorrow I'll own a glass paperweight I made, assisted by a very patient instructor. Great date night!
My friends and I did a group class at Ghost Pepper and it was such a fun Saturday activity to do together, especially on a cold day with the garage door open letting the chill in but the warm furnaces keeping it cozy. Our instructors were super helpful and friendly, letting us control many parts of the making of the glass pieces, but also correcting along the way to fix our mess ups! They really prioritize safety which I appreciate and also will give you tips on colors that will look good and tips on technique as well. You get to stand and take videos of each other and watch friends create really cool things with their own touches of personality. Pick up of your item is usually by the next day once it has cooled which is really nice. The only thing I will note is that finding the actual place and finding the parking lot can be challenging, even though there is a lot of parking space open but the nearby streets are often very backed up and confusing to get to. Notably, they don't have a big sign, but their facility is the light blue building at the corner and has an inlet to the parking lot right before the streetlight on Springdale, and no entry from the Airport side so you have to go around as far as I could tell. Totally worth checking out at least once if not multiple times to make some different things!
Amazing, amazing one time glass blowing experience. I went with a friend we both learned so much about glass blowing. Our instructor Cory was great at explaining every step of the process. It was a very hands on experience but I felt safe and confident in my tasks every step of the way. I really appreciated the ample parking they have and their cute dogs which were the cherries on top of an already great experience.
My boyfriend and I did a beginning glass blowing experience here and had the best time! The people are awesome and I ended up not only making something cool, but getting dish ware as Christmas gifts for my family too!
Had a great time! Keith was my instructor and was fantastic. He took me through the process and was very helpful! Katie showed us around and explained things before we started. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a new experience.
Best. Date. Everrrrr. If you are thinking about the 2 hour private class, stop thinking and BOOK IT!!! We seriously had the best time ever AND got to make 3 pieces each (most places usually stop after one I feel like). Another thing that really sets them apart is the amount of glass blowing YOU actually get to do- instead of just watching the instructor, which is what I was fully expecting. Love love loved our time here- thank y'all so much!

Great experience! We went for a bachelorette party and they were super accommodating and excited to have us.
This is a fabulous Austin experience. Whether you live here or are visiting, Ghost Pepper Glass is a fun and informative experience. The instructors are all pros. We even took my mom for her 80th birthday and she made a glass bowl that she treasures
My girlfriend and I had a blast here doing the taste of glass class. Cory, our instructor was great! We did the first class time on a Saturday morning.
Had an amazing private lesson with Keith! We learned a ton and he let us be creative and make a multitude of items within our time period!
