Fun, festive, and evergreen! This Make Your Own Glass experience is open to all ages, and allows you to work with hot glass up close, while staying on the cool end of the glassblowing iron at all times. You’ll start by choosing the glass colors you want to incorporate into your Holiday Tree Sculpture. Then, you’ll partner with our professional glassblowers to create your design. Using The Studio's new alternate inflation device, you will use a foot pedal to add compressed air into the blowpipe and watch as the glass inflates and the glassblower guides and shapes the glass with special tools to form the tree. After your tree is shaped, it is removed from the blowpipe, a glass base is added by our glassblowers and it is placed in an oven to begin an overnight slow cooling process. Holiday Trees are available for pick up after noon the next day, or may be shipped for an additional fee within the U.S. and Canada.

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

Masks are urged for all visitors to the Museum, and are required for unvaccinated visitors (over age 2), as mandated by New York State.
