Come in to our hot glass studio and make your own blown-glass piece with guidance from our professional glass artist (the gaffer in glassblowing lingo).

 

Things to know about glassblowing experiences:

• Pre-registration is required for all glassblowing classes

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

• Children are welcome! If you are 9 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)
