Make something beautiful: in our private glassblowing class for two with an item to take home. A stone's throw from Stearn's Wharf rests Saul Alcaraz's studio, Santa Barbara Art Glass, where you'll discover blown glass is functional art -- and that you're capable of creating a masterpiece.

This was a great experience. Saul was very helpful and knowledgeable. My husband and I booked a private class. We both got to pick our items, our colors, and make our own pieces. I can't wait to go again.
