It's part classroom, part professional setup — and for kids, it's a chance to make teamwork while they make art. Video by Christophe Haubursin

As an artist, I'm thrilled to know our kids are exposed to such a wonderful class.

Isn't it somewhat dangerous to do glass blowing? My father used to do it for a Ho by when I was a child, and he was told later that it had contributed to his lung and sto ach cancer ( he was not a smoker or drinker).

I have since been told that glass blowing co tributes to lead poisoning, which my father also suffered from.
