New Glass Ornament

May 12 to January 5
Age Restriction: 
all ages

Commemorate your visit to the New Glass Now exhibition with this limited-time ornament. Our glassblowers were inspired by New Glass Now and created this unique ornament. Open to all ages, this experience allows you to work with hot glass up close, while staying on the cool end of the glassblowing iron at all times. You’ll start by choosing the glass color you want to use, and then partner with our professional glassblowers to create the New Glass Now-inspired design. You will shape the ornament by blowing air through the moving blowpipe as the glassblower guides the glass with special tools. After you and the glassblower have shaped your ornament, it is removed from the blowpipe, a glass loop is added and it is placed in an oven to begin an overnight slow cooling process called annealing. 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.
