Holiday Open House Fused Ornament

December 7 to December 8
Age Restriction: 
age 4 and up

Enjoy discounted Holiday Open House glassmaking experiences this weekend only, December 7 and 8, from 9 am to 5 pm. This Make Your Own Glass experience 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 and design your fused glass ornament. 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 pieces fuse together to create a single piece of glass.

Pieces must cool overnight and can be picked up after 3 pm on Wednesday, December 11 or shipped for an additional fee within the U.S. and Canada.
