Hot Glass Sculpting Pod Workshop for 2 People

All Skill Levels 2-hour Workshop

Pittsburgh Glass Center has one of the world’s best-designed and well-equipped hot glass studios. It’s a great place to learn how to gather molten material from a 2,100°F furnace and sculpt it into various shapes including:

  • Pumpkin Paperweight $115/person
  • Tree Paperweight $115/person
  • Flower $115/person
  • Paperweight $115/person

Our introductory hands-on pod workshops are new and especially designed for 2–6 friends and family members. You will work in a small group with only those people in your pod who you’ve invited to this class.

You will receive guided instruction from a local teaching artist to help you create your own sculpted glass work of art. 

This is a 2-hour experience. Each person will make 2 items. All ages. 2-6 people.
