Mother's Day Fusing

April 4 to May 10
Age Restriction: 
age 4 and up

Celebrate mom by creating a one-of-a-kind Mother's Day fusing project. This Make Your Own Glass experience is open to ages 4 and up and is only available for a limited time. You’ll start by picking out the color for your background piece of glass. Then you'll create 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 (or melts) together to create a single piece of glass. You can create an original Mother's Day themed tile or sun catcher or you can use the provided template of the heart design pictured here. Pieces must cool overnight and can be picked up the next day, or shipped for an additional fee within the U.S. and Canada.

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