Make-It-Now at PGC

Make-It-Now workshops are quick experiences to try glassmaking with the assistance of a local artist. All ages are welcome unless otherwise noted. Refreshments are provided. Click here to browse all upcoming Make-It-Now opportunities.

Make-It-Now is intended for groups of four or fewer. If you have a larger group, private events are available. To learn more, please call 412-365-2145.

*Please note that due to the nature of hot glass, items cannot be taken home the day they are created. They must cool first and may be picked up a few days later. Shipping can be arranged for an additional fee.
