Victorian Style Ornament

November 13 to January 2
Age Restriction: 
all ages

Enjoy an ornament that recalls memories of Holidays past with this Victorian Style 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 colors you want to use, and then partner with our professional glassblowers to create your design. You will use a foot pedal to add compressed air into the blowpipe and watch as the ornament inflates and the glassblower guides and shapes the glass with special tools. After your Victorian ornament is shaped, it is removed from the blowpipe, a glass loop is added by our glassblowers and it is placed in an oven to begin an overnight slow cooling process. Ornaments are available for pick up after noon the next day, or may be shipped for an additional fee within the U.S. and Canada.

Masks are urged for all visitors to the Museum, and are required for unvaccinated visitors (over age 2), as mandated by New York State.

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