Things to know about glassblowing experiences:

• Pre-registration is required for all glassblowing classes

NEW! For the safety of our guests and glass artists, we require all participants in hands-on glass experiences to be fully vaccinated and to provide proof upon arrival. Thank you for helping us provide a safe experience for all. (More details below)

• Glassblowing classes are very popular and frequently sell out; we encourage you to register early

• If you are age 12 or older you can work with hot glass

• You will work one-on-one with our professional glass artist; sessions are scheduled for 15 minutes

• Your hot glass item must cool in a special oven, so you will not be able to take it home the same day. Objects will be available for pick-up the following day the museum is open. Objects created on Saturday are available for pick-up on Tuesday. If you are unable to pick up your item, shipping can be arranged with us.

• Closed-toe shoes must be worn in the hot glass studio

• Eye protection must be worn in the hot glass studio (provided by The Works)

Vaccination Required for Glassblowing Experiences

Please note, for the safety of our guests and glass artists, we require all participants in hands-on glass experiences to be fully vaccinated and to provide proof upon arrival. Thank you for helping us provide a safe experience for all.

As a hands-on museum that serves all ages, safety is essential at The Works. Due to the nature of The Works’ private glassblowing sessions which involve close contact with our glass artist, we are requiring participants to provide proof of vaccination. Our glass artist is often in contact with young children, as well as high risk individuals. Please plan to provide your vaccination card upon arrival to your scheduled glass experience.

For members and general visitors to the museum, vaccination is preferred, but not required. The Works will continue to follow the most up-to-date CDC recommendations and best practices for museums.

*Please note: When you click to register for a glass making experience, the link will take you to the first available opening. Simply click on “other dates” or “other times” to find another available date/time.
