Hands-on activities are a great way to enhance a visit to Pittsburgh Glass Center and get a taste of glass making in a short period of time. No experience is required. Instructors lead each participant through a hands-on glass making experience ranging from paperweights to beads and fused tiles. Expect to roll up your sleeves and go right to the torch, furnace or fusing studio and create your own masterpiece. Hands-on activities include a live hot glass demonstration and tour of PGC's current contemporary glass exhibition, unless otherwise specified.
