For groups looking for a unique team-building activity in Duluth, Lake Superior Art Glass will engage teams of up to 15 in the craft of glassblowing.

“Unlike a lot of group experiences, this is one where you get to be creative,” says Kristen Austin, group sales coordinator and marketing coordinator for Lake Superior Art Glass. “You get to show your own style, and you get to have a little fun with your coworkers in a way that is safe but unusual. And you get to have a memento afterward, which is a really special thing.”

Located in the city’s Canal Park neighborhood next to the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center, the studio offers several options for group classes such as making blown ornaments, paperweights, glass flowers, wine goblets, pendants, or glass icicles. Groups also can choose to design a product themselves but watch the artisans make it instead. All creations need to cool in the annealer (a machine that slowly cools the glass) overnight and can be picked up the next day or shipped.
