Try Glassmaking in 20 Minutes or Less!

Make-It-Now workshops are an opportunity to try glassmaking in 20 minutes or less. Everyone can participate! No experience is required.

*Note: Please note that due to the nature of hot glass, items cannot be taken with you the day that you create them. They must cool first and may be picked up a few days later.  Shipping can be arranged for an extra fee. Make-It-Now is intended for individuals or groups of four or less. If you have a larger group, you can schedule your own private Make-It-Now workshop for a small additional fee; call 412-365-2145 for details.
