Summer Glass Working Specials

Benzaiten Center for Creative Arts announces summer glass working classes at special reduced pricing.

The Benzaiten Center for Creative Arts is a nonprofit organization in a Historic FEC Train Depot at 1105 2nd Ave South in Lake Worth. Located in the Lake Worth Arts District, this 14,500 square foot permanent arts center is dedicated to living and working artists as well as to the community. Open to the public for classes Tuesday – Saturday, 10 am to 5 pm the Center brings art to life, immersing the public in arts production and its creative processes, while providing direct interaction with artists from around the world. Join us to take a class or just visit to watch the artists’ work with hot molten glass to create magnificent treasures!

The Benzaiten Center has 3 main studios offering summer classes at special reduced rates.

  • The Glass Blowing Studio: Work one-on-one with a glass artist in this special 1-hour class for 2 people for only $100. Take a class with a friend and experience the excitement of watching your creation come to life!
  • The Flame Working Studio: For only $40 per person, work with an artist for this 1½ hour class. Using the small torches in the air-conditioned studio you will make your own glass necklace or create beads for jewelry.
  • The Glass Fusing Studio: With room to accommodate up to 10 people, we offer special summer pricing for our 2 hour fusing class for $45 per person. Avoid the high season crowds by taking this popular class in the air conditioned comfort in our enclosed glass fusing facility.

The Benzaiten Center for Creative Arts was the vision of artist and philanthropist, JB Berkow. Since thirty percent of America’s artists live in the Southeast United States, Ms. Berkow wanted to encourage established and young emerging artists to continue living and working in South Florida. The Benzaiten Center supports these artists’ efforts to create glass and metal fine art sculptures in a world-class fabrication arts center by providing them with extremely reasonable studio rental costs along with a gallery for showing their work.

Discover the magical world of glass.  Call for class times and additional information at 561-508-7315.
