Make Your Own Glass

November 13 to February 28
Age Restriction: 
all ages

Stay warm this winter making your own Snowperson from molten glass. 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 then partner with our professional glassblowers to create your unique glass snowperson. Using The Studio's new alternate inflation device, instead of traditional mouth blowing, you will help shape the snowperson by providing and controlling airflow into the blowpipe by stepping on a foot pedal as the glassblower guides the glass with special tools. After your snowperson is shaped, it is removed from the blowpipe, a glass hat is added by our glassblowers and it is placed in an oven to begin an overnight slow cooling process. Glass snowpeople are ready for pick up after noon 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.

Masks are required by all Museum guests over age 2, regardless of vaccination status, due to high COVID-19 transmission rate and per NYS mandate.
