Make Your Own Glass

Frame (large)

Age Restriction: 
age 4 and up

This Make Your Own Glass experience is open to ages four and up. Layering pieces of flat glass and heating them in a kiln oven until they melt together 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 frame with inside dimensions of 5.5" x 7.5" in this Make Your Own Glass experience. Pieces must cool overnight and can be picked up the next day after 12:00pm or shipped for an additional fee within the US and Canada.

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

Masks are required by all Museum guests over age 2, regardless of vaccination status, due to high COVID-19 transmission rate and per NYS mandate.
