Make Your Own Glass

Heart Bead

January 5 to February 14
Age Restriction: 
age 10 and up

Open to ages ten and up, this Make Your Own Glass experience introduces you to the basics of flameworking and offers a focused experience with hot glass. Our professional glass artists will demonstrate how to work with molten glass at the torch, and guide you through the process. You’ll start by turning a mandrel - a %%metal%% %%rod%% used in beadmaking - in the flame. Your heart-shaped design will be created by melting colored glass rods in the flame and applying the molten glass to your mandrel. Staff will provide a variety of colored glass rods and will teach you several decorative patterns for your heart bead. Pieces must cool overnight and can be picked up the next day, or shipped for an additional fee within the US and Canada.

Spots fill quickly, booking your experience online before your visit is recommended.
