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:

  • Heart Paperweight $115/person
  • Flower Paperweight $115/person
  • Round Paperweight $115/person
  • Pumpkin 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. Ages 10+. 2-6 people.

EVERYONE IN THE GROUP MUST MAKE THE SAME ITEM. YOU WILL BE ASKED TO SELECT THAT ITEM IN THE CHECKOUT PROCESS.

Special Notes

Here’s how to register:
Create your pod. Make a list of friends and family who will take the workshop with you. (No individuals other than those you invite will be allowed to take part in the class.)

Choose a time and date that is good for everyone. Pod classes are available Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. Only 1 pod class will take place in the studio at a time.

Decide what you would like to make. Each member of your group must make the same type of item.

Register and pay with credit card online. When you register you will be paying for 2 people and reserving your day and time. Each person costs $115.

We will contact you to confirm your reservation. You can pay the remainder of the balance for your other guests at that time.

Private lessons, tours and demonstrations are also available. Visit https://www.pittsburghglasscenter.org/small-group-activities to get more information.
