Make Your Own Glass

You are here


Age Restriction: 
age 4 and up

This Make Your Own Glass experience is open to ages four and up. Layering pieces of flat glass and heating them in a kiln oven until the pieces melt together is called fusing. You’ll start by creating a design using colored frit (small chunks of glass), thin glass strings, and larger glass pieces. Museum staff will provide glass in a variety of colors and shapes for you to arrange in your design. Using non-toxic glue, you’ll secure your design in place, and our professionals will heat the piece in the kiln oven overnight. While in the kiln, the glass fuses together to create a single piece of glass. Once removed from the kiln oven our professionals will attach a light sensitive LED night light to your glass. Pieces can be picked up after noon the next day, or shipped for an additional fee within the US and Canada.

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