GLASS PLAY DAY!!
Saturday, March 27
10:00am – 5:00pm
Only $85 per person!
Here’s your chance to be an authentic ‘glassblower’ without the typical ‘authentic’ expense or even time commitment!
Because of the tremendous response to our workshops, we’re offering a ‘cliff notes version’ glassblowing experience to the public (age 18 or older).
On March 27, we will sponsor ‘Glass Play Day’. For just $85, you will be allowed to work with the glassblowers for a limited time period that day. You will work at a lampwork torch to make a glass bead from scratch as well as assisting at the large furnace and glory hole to make a small paperweight. For each of these, you will be able to choose from a selection of 4 pre-mixed color schemes, making your creations truly personalized!
Because this is a one day offering and each client will work one-on-one with his/her instructor, we have very limited slots available. If you want to ‘feel the heat’, please let us know as soon as you can… pre-registration is required. (Please plan to arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled time to cover safety precautions and complete paperwork.)
While results will vary greatly, we certainly guarantee this to be fun, and we very much look forward to sharing our world with you!

Participation in Glass Play Day is limited to adults age 18 or over. Glass Play Day is made available for clients to experience working with hot glass, not necessarily create completed works of art. The instructors will work toward a goal of the client being able to take home items made, but note that not all beads nor paperweights will be successful through the creation and/or annealing processes. The curriculum for Glass Play Day is preset and not customizable, but please inform your instructor if you have previous hot glass experience. Please allow approximately 2 weeks for your items to be ready for pick-up. Shipping is available at an additional charge.
CANCELLATION: Registration and prepayment are required. If you need to cancel for any reason, please do so by noon on Thursday, March 25 to receive a full refund.

While you are welcome to leave a voicemail message, this will not be considered a full cancellation without speaking with an actual person. Please do not email or fax your cancellation.
