Groups of 6-24 can book a private event Tuesday – Sunday. (Groups of 6 or 7 are required to include a narrated demonstration to meet the 2-hr minimum.) Workshops last 2-3 hours and can consist of the following:
- Individual Hands-On Activity (Each Participant Makes One Small Piece)
- Glassblowing Demonstration with Narration and Live Q & A
- Group Hands-On Activity — Whole Group Makes One Large Collaboration (This option must be booked via phone or email)
The most popular event type includes a hands-on activity where each participant has the opportunity to make a small glass object one-on-one with our instructors. Our instructors act as a guide and keep students safe but we try to allow the participant to do as much of the process as possible, which makes for a really memorable experience. Our facility is set up so that those who aren’t participating are able to watch, take pictures of, encourage or (sometimes) heckle the others.
Please check out our Taste of Glassblowing classes to see the possible items that can be made in this type of workshop: ornament/sun-catcher, paperweight, flower, pumpkin or dish. Each group may choose two of these items as option. Each participant makes one object and all items must cool overnight for pick up on the following afternoon. Groups larger than 12 will need to book two events for the same time (if available) or back to back. Keep in mind that groups of more than 16 will require more than 2 hours for everyone to finish their projects.
