Tic Tac Toe

Age Restriction: 
age 4 and up

This Make Your Own Glass experience is open to ages 4 and up. Layering pieces of flat glass and heating them in a kiln oven is called fusing. You’ll start by creating a cross hash design on a four-by-four inch square board using colored frit (small chunks of glass) and stringers (thin glass strings). Museum staff will provide glass in a variety of colors for you to arrange in your design. Then, you’ll receive six pieces of black and white one-by-one inch squares to decorate and use as game pieces. Using non-toxic glue, you’ll secure your design in place, and our professionals will heat the piece in the kiln oven overnight. The glass fuses together to create a single piece of glass for your board and playing pieces. Pieces must cool overnight and can be picked up the next day, or shipped for an additional fee within the U.S. and Canada.

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