We went to watch the glass blowing as advertised on the sign outside. The men blowing the glass seemed to not want us there. Since I like to support non-profit schools I went out to look at the items that I thought were for sale....More

The glassblowing artist was awesome. He was kind, safety-minded, and an excellent teacher. He made the class fun and exciting. The management, an older lady, was another story. We were greeted rudely and she interrupted our class twice and yelled and berated our instructor for...More

My daughters took a two-hour glass blowing workshop and were so inspired that now they want to continue studying this. The instructor was patient and showed them how to blow 4 different pieces each. Well worth the expense.

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts

Other reviewers said it was $155 for a two hour session. I went to their websites and the prices aren't posted there either.
