Make Your Own

A Hands-On Glass Experience

Experience the movement and beauty of hot glass. A hands-on experience assisted by Barrio Glassworks team members. Friends and family are welcome to watch and photograph.


This is an introductory session to working in a hot glass studio by making your own unique solid object: glass paperweight or glass heart.  Once you complete this experience, additional lessons are available to create blown glass objects (bowls, vases, cups, etc.).

Safety: When in the hot shop, closed toes shoes are required and loose hair must be tied back. Cotton clothing and long sleeves recommended. Ladies: For your comfort, no tank tops please. 

Finished pieces must cool and generally take 24-48 hours to properly anneal (cool).  Please allow 2 days before returning to pick up your beautiful hand made object. (Please note: We are closed Mondays). We can ship them to you.
