Amphitheater Hot Shop

See the winner of Blown Away work live at the Museum! From Netflix to the Amphitheater Hot Shop, the winner will bring their talents to Corning for exciting glassmaking demonstrations assisted and narrated by our Hot Glass Team. Friendly for the whole family, these summer working sessions will prepare the winner to return to the Museum October 14-18 for the “Blown Away Residency.”

These demonstrations are included in the cost of admission (Kids and Teens 17 and Under are free). While in the Amphitheater Hot Shop, visitors can check out our display Blown Away: Glassblowing Comes to Netflix, which tells the story of how the Museum found its way into the global spotlight.

Blown Away, the first-ever TV competition series featuring the art of glassblowing, is now streaming on Netflix. The show follows a group of 10 highly skilled glassmakers from North America who compete with each other to create the best glass artworks and are constricted by time, theme, and the material itself. The winner of Blown Away was awarded the “Blown Away Residency”, during which they will delve deeper into glassblowing projects through live demonstrations in the Amphitheater Hot Shop. The Corning Museum of Glass is a proud creative partner of Blown AwayLearn more about Blown Away
