Has anyone ever been to Wheaton Villiage, a historical villiage in Millville, (south western) New Jersey? They have ceramics, glass blowing, and decoy (those wooden ducks) desmonstrations. It's very interesting and a great thing to do on an overcast day. If you're near Philidelphia or Cape May, go check it out. The Museum of American Glass is really interesting... they have so many bottles, vases, and artistic stulptures for viewing. They also have a house made of antique glass projection slides, the world's largest hand-blown glass bottle (7 foot 8 inches), and more. Does anyone here know how to do glass blowing? If so, rock on! Haha. They also have classes (if you're 18 or older) where you can make a glass-blown paper weight and take it with you in a day. They have some $3,000 glass paperweights for sale! Yikes!

The website for this great place is http://www.wheatonvillage.org/

Urban Glass in NYC. You can go there and take classes. It seems pretty expensive (around 100-150 USD) but I think it's worth it. They have bracelet making where they teach you how to make the glass beads, supply all materials, and you get to make and take home a glass-bead bracelet that you make.

Yeah, wow, that's really cool. I don't think $150.00 to learn how to do it one-on-one with an instructor is very expensive. It would be different if you had to go with a large group and didn't end up doing it correctly. I want to do that someday...

Wheaton Village is definitely on my to-check-out list.  I'd love to take a glassblowing class, especially after going to Venice this summer and seeing it done.  Fascinating!! There's a glassworks closer to me in Philly but it's something like $450 for the sessions.  Ouch, a bit pricey!

Yeah, to make your own paperweight... it's only $55.00, I think. Seems incredibly cheap, if you ask me.
