age 10 and up

Open to ages 10 and up, this Make Your Own Glass experience introduces you to the basics of flameworking and offers a focused experience with hot glass by creating a single bead from start to finish. To create your bead, you will melt glass rods in a torch under the supervision and guidance of our professional glass artists.You begin by choosing a design and shape from the options provided. Then you will choose up to three colors to create the design. After your bead is designed, you will be dressed in provided safety gear and seated at a work station. Our professional glass artists will guide you through the process of turning a mandrel - a metal rod used in beadmaking - melting colored rods of glass, and adding them to the mandrel in a flame to create a bead. Beads must cool overnight and can be picked up the next day, or shipped within the U.S. and Canada at no additional cost.

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

Please note: projects made in the last two sessions of the day are not available for next day pick up. They can be shipped or picked up at 12:00pm on the second day from date of reservation.
