Mold-Blown Gem Ornament

May 26 to February 17
Age Restriction: 
age 10 and up

Open to ages 10 and up, this very special experience allows you to work with hot glass, while staying on the cool end of the glassblowing iron at all times. You’ll start by choosing a transparent glass color to use for your gem. You'll then partner with our professional glassblowers to create your gem. You will begin by blowing air through the moving blowpipe as the glassblower guides the glass with special tools. You will then blow into a special hose connected to the blowpipe while our glassblower drips the glass into the gem shaped mold. The gem is then removed from the blowpipe and our glassblower will add a glass loop to the top. Your piece is then placed in an oven to begin an overnight slow cooling process. Gem ornaments are ready for pick up the following 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.
