Family Fusing

December 26 to January 5
Age Restriction: 
age 4 and up

This special Make Your Own Glass experience can be completed by up to seven family members. This fusing project is open to ages 4 and up. Layering pieces of flat glass and heating them in a kiln oven is called fusing. You’ll start by creating a design using colored frit (small chunks of glass), thin glass strings, and larger glass pieces. Museum staff will provide glass in a variety of colors and shapes for you to arrange in your design. Using non-toxic glue, you’ll secure your design in place, and our professionals will heat the piece in the kiln oven overnight. The glass fuses together to create a single piece of glass. You can create an original glass wall hanging, platter, or mobile in this Make Your Own Glass experience. 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. All projects must be completed within the allotted 40 minute time period. Please plan accordingly.
