    I am interested in learning how to blow glass but I am not sure where to start first. I currently live in NH. Would it be more cost effective to purchase the equipment or pay for classes? I currently do not know anyone that does blow glass but I know it is something I have the patience for. As I do not know too much about it I currently do not have many questions other than where do I begin.

    Glasscraft.net they're based in Golden Co. I got a starter kit in 2006 for like $300-$500, including a decent set of tools, torch, hoses, clamps, regulators, and like 10lbs of glass. I've upgraded my torch and bought a few new tools and a kiln since then but for STARTERS that's a really good bet. I made some quality work with that. Get that and then get lessons and practice. Good luck!

    Glassblowing is the art of creating glass sculptures by manipulating molten glass. I also think about to make it.
