Glassblowing Workshops

General Info: 

Price: $82/ $76 WRHS members

Max: 4 

Age Range: 13 and up

Explore the magic of forming molten glass into a beautiful work of art! This experience is facilitated by Hale Farm’s expert glassblower; no experience is necessary. Participants are led step-by-step through the process of blowing, molding, and/or pulling glass as they create their own unique project. Please note, projects offered change based on seasonality and availability, but standard options include participant’s choice of one:

  • pulled glass flower
  • glass paperweights 
  • blown glass ornaments or globes

Students should dress in casual, comfortable clothing, suitable for the weather. Long pants and sturdy, closed-toe shoes are required. Finished items will be available for pick-up at the MarketPlace in the Gatehouse Visitor Center after cooling time–about one week from the workshop date. Participants will be notified via email when objects are ready! 

PLEASE NOTE. Guests will be notified when projects are ready by the email used to purchase tickets and will be available during normal operating hours, Wed-Sun, 10-4pm. 

Please remember–art happens! Sometimes there will be defects or cracks that happen to glass during cooling, or cracking in ceramic pieces during the firing process. This is part of the creation process, and Hale Farm & Village is not liable for damage during cooling or firing steps. No refunds or substitute workshops will be provided for chipped or cracked pieces, unless damage is the direct fault of Hale Farm staff.
