Things to know about glassblowing experiences:

Pre-registration is required for all glassblowing classes

Please be prompt for your glassblowing session, as time is limited. Arrive 5 minutes early, if possible. If you arrive late for your session, you may be asked to wait for the next available session.

• 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 range from 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the type of piece being made

• Due to the high demand for glassblowing experiences, we are not able to provide refunds. Please call Guest Services if you have questions at 740.349.9277.

• 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. Please note: The Works will store your glass up until 6 months from the date of your experience. After that time, your glass will no longer be available.

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