Experience the wonder of glassblowing for yourself with our hands-on Hot Glass Encounter! Participants will learn all about the materials, tools, and skills needed to transform raw, molten glass into a work of art, and our glassblowers will work with you one-on-one to help you create your own one-of-a-kind glass art piece which you can take home in just 24 to 48 hours. Or if you're visiting from farther away we offer a flat shipping fee of $15/item to ship your Hot Glass Encounter piece anywhere in the continental United States.
Reservations are required. We suggest you call ASAP as we book up quickly. We are currently booking Hot Glass Encounters Thursday – Sunday.
Please arrive 10-15 minutes prior to your appointment time to allow time to make your selection and fill out paperwork.
We offer both private/individual as well as group sessions. Please allow at least 30 minutes per person/piece. If someone in your group would like to make more than 1 item, we need to know that at time of booking so enough time is scheduled
For those just wishing to watch, you are more than welcome to view your friend or loved one while they're creating their piece. We just ask that no more then 10 people come purely for spectating. (This number will vary depending on the size of the group making individual pieces.)
For this experience we recommend that participants be at least 8 years old and up. For those wishing young children to participate we require a parent/guardian to complete a majority of the work while having the child help intermittently.
**We recommend for the safety of our customers attending that closed toe shoes are worn and that long hair be tied back, it can be warm in the hot shop so please dress accordingly.**
Call 610-264-1100 to book your session!
