Make A Glass Bud Vase
- Insured Shipping
Experience the thrill of making your own blown glass bud vase in our studio, with the help of our team of glassblowers. Bring friends and family to watch you make your piece. Tour our art installations when you visit and check out all our great glass gift ideas in the gallery! Contact us about a private group class for 6 or more people. Available for AGES 15 AND OLDER.
For this experience, you will choose your colors, roll the hot glass in the color, blow into the piece, sit on our glassblowing bench using a hand held wood mold to shape, then manipulate the glass using the jacks tool to create the lip of the vase. We'll finish the piece into a whimsical bud vase.
It's our most interactive glass class this season! Classes won't resume again until October 2023 after the summer heat, but look out for a possible summer cast glass experience for all ages coming out soon.
Each ticket is for one person to make their piece. Book consecutive spots for a couple's or friends and family experience.
