Speciality Workshop | Heart Paperweight or Pendant

February 1 @ 10:00 am - February 29 @ 6:00 pm

$50 – $75

Make a beautiful gift for that special someone! This February, we are adding a heart paperweight and heart pendant option to our 30-minute make your own classes. You will work with one of our talented, experienced artist instructors to craft your very own heart paperweight or pendant that will serve as a glass keepsake for years to come. Learn the basics of working with molten glass as your instructor guides you through the entire process! All levels welcome.

Time slots are available every day, from 10:00 am – 6:00 pm (the last slot begins at 5:30 pm, paperweights are available every day except Tuesday for $75, pendants are available Tuesday, Friday, Saturday, & Sunday for $50 ). If you would like to share this experience with others, please book consecutive time slots for each individual. Spectators are always welcome, free of charge!

Students must be 11 years of age for pendants and 13 years of age for paperweights with a signed waiver by a parent or legal guardian.

Please note that due to the nature of hot glass, pieces may not be taken home the day they are made. They must slowly cool first and may be picked up the following day after 3:00 pm. Shipping can be arranged for an additional fee.
