Make-It-Now at PGC

Make-It-Now workshops at Pittsburgh Glass Center are quick experiences to try glassmaking with the assistance of a local artist. It's the perfect way to sample glass art before committing to a longer workshop or class. Ages 5+ are welcome to participate unless otherwise noted. 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.

COVID-19 GUIDELINES: We will continue to require all students (5+) participating in on-site activities to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or to have tested negative for COVID-19 within 72 hours of their class time. By registering for a course you agree to adhere to this policy, but you do not need to provide proof when arriving for your course.  Masks are welcome but not required. Read more about our COVID-19 precautions.
