Items have varying degrees of participation. You will learn to hold the punty, heat the glass, apply color, and assist in shaping the item before knocking it off the pipe. Due to Covid, we are not allowing guests to actually blow into the pipe. Please visit our PROCESS page to learn more.
We like to say “Hand Made, Hand Wash”. Glass does not do well with Thermal Shock – rapid and sudden change in temperature which can cause glass to crack or shatter. Since dishwashers can get hot, there is a chance your glass could crack or break.
We do not recommend it. Glass does not do well with Thermal Shock – rapid and sudden change in temperature which can cause glass to crack or shatter.
The U.S. Fire Administration recommends keeping medical oxygen tanks at least 5 feet from a heat source, open flames or electrical devices. Most of our glassblowing participation occurs near our furnaces and fire polishing flame, therefor we do not recommend participating in our glassblowing experience except for observing your other guests that may be attending (there is no cost to attend with your party if you are not making an item). If you still wish to have an item made, someone else in your party or our instructors can make the item at your direction and our glassblowers will work to accommodate you into the participation as much as feasible, however, this may be limited to applying the color to your piece only.
