Sculpture

Price:

Type: 
Glassblowing
Age Restriction: 
all ages

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 colors you want to use and the shape of your ornament, and then partner with our professional glassblowers to create your design. You will use a foot pedal to blow compressed air into the blowpipe and watch as the sculpture inflates and the glassblower guides and shapes the glass with special tools. After your sculpture is shaped, it is removed from the blowpipe, and it is placed in an oven to begin an overnight slow cooling process. Sculptures are ready for pick up the following day vie Curb Side pick-up or may be shipped for an additional fee within the U.S. and Canada.

To ensure the health and safety of guests and staff, both parties will be required to sanitize their hands before entering the workshop. All participants must wear a face covering for the duration of the project with no exceptions–even if they have provided medical documentation that exempts them from wearing a face covering for their Museum visit. The workshop floorplan has been adjusted to comply with social distancing guidelines, spacing workstation 6-feet apart, limiting room capacity and adjusting session times to be 15 minutes per project. 

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