What is Glass Blowing?

Glass Blowing is an art form that dates back over 3,000 years! Some early forms of blown glass art found in Egypt dates back to 1500 B.C. At Live Laugh Love Art, we use state-of-the-art glassblowing equipment to make glassblowing a fun, safe, and accessible activity for everyone.

In our hands-on glass blowing workshops, each participant will help our master glass blower blow their own unique piece of glass. With a large selection of projects to choose from, there is truly something for everyone at any age.

When can I take my blown glass art home?

After you blow your glass, it will be incredibly hot (over 1,000º!) and so we need to let it cool down slowly to avoid cracking or exploding. Please allow 2 studio days before picking up your blown glass art.

Portland’s Favorite Glass Blowing Shop!

So Kind!

I’ve been here a few times, most recently for making some memorial glassware. It was dedicated one-on-one and it was so kind and respectful. The pieces turned out wonderfully!

Very Fun for the Whole Family!

We did the glassblowing activity, making ornaments. Very fun for the whole family! The staff are great with lots of experience and very friendly and helpful. The physical space is set up very well for any group too. Want to come back and try something else!

A Delightful Experience!

This is a lovely studio. The staff is so friendly! My husband and I had a wonderful relaxed experience on Saturday blowing a float. My grandkids and I picked my finished globe on Wednesday and we were invited to look around and stay as long as we wanted.
