You Design It; We Make It

You Design It; We Make It

You Design It; We Make It! brings the art of design and glassmaking alive for visitors of all ages.

Submit a drawing of something you’d like to see made in glass. It can be a fanciful shape, something inspired by the collection, or an idea you’ve always wanted to see realized. Tell us what inspired your design.

At select shows throughout the day, glassmakers at the Hot Glass Show or Flameworking Demo will choose a drawing that inspires them, and then make that piece in front of a live audience. The designer can watch his or her vision become reality.

If your piece is chosen and completed successfully, we will contact you so that you may keep it. Glass pieces must anneal overnight, so there may be a shipping charge.

You Design It; We Make It! is available during school breaks, and throughout the summer. One drawing is chosen per You Design It; We Make It! show. See the schedule for You Design It; We Make It! show times. Paper and markers are available at the Museum. Completed drawings should be submitted to the main Admissions Desk for the chance to be picked for the day's show. We are sorry, but we cannot make designs of any kind of weapon.
