What do you want to make? Big vase-type things, or small animals and beads?
For the big stuff, you need a lot of equipment (glory hole, big kiln). My phone book yellow pages have a couple of listings under "Glass Blower" but one's a gallery. Even a gallery could probably introduce you to a glassblower.
For little stuff, you can work on a torch. Bead shops can often hook you up with beadmaking classes; if you like it, you can find lots of tutorials online.
well I was thinking smaller stuff like beads and the animal kind of stuff for starters since I thought smaller would be easier to do...
Try this place, a friend of mine had a great time at this location when she visited last year. Village Glass Works 315 N. 10th Street Columbia, MO 65201, phone# 573-443-0393.
Serious glass blowing seems to take place in St Louis and St Charles.
I will have to look into that...it sounds like one of the newer...art studios that are downtown right now. Yeah I kind of figured st.louis had more people since....
I knew I have seen some people at the ren faire that do blown glass.
