What to expect…

So, you have decided to make a project at Glassworks Studio?

Click on the steps below to see what you can expect during your visit.

Reservations are recommended on weekends or during busy holiday periods.

Step 1. Select Your Project

Start by picking the project that you want to work on, look at the shape and size of the piece, the color and design will be up to you!.

There are a wide variety of project choices, with prices starting at $23. Once you know what you want to make you fill in your details on one of our tags.

Want to work together on a project? No problem, there is a one-time sharing fee of $10 per additional person. There is no charge for adults helping young children.

Step 2. Instruction

Our friendly and knowledgeable staff will give you a lesson on how to work with our glass, including how to cut the glass for anyone aged 10 and over.

At this stage most people are surprised to be presented with a flat piece of glass -  the slumping process (if you selected it) happens later in the kiln.

Step 3. Start Designing

Collect colored pieces of glass from the large inventory and begin laying them out to create your design. If you choose, you can sketch your design directly onto the glass, this will later burn away in the kiln.

Want some inspiration for your design? We have templates and idea books available. For a small charge, we also offer embellishments and charms that will enhance your design.

Step 4. Questions?

Throughout your session Glassworks' staff will be on hand to answer any questions you may have, and offer guidance as your project moves along.      

Step 5. Finishing Up

Once you’re happy with your design, leave it with us to be fused and slumped into the project of your choosing in our kilns. We try our best to make sure your project gets back to you safely; occasionally, due to the nature of the process, accidents happen. Should anything happen to your project the following options are available:

 1. If breakage is due to the customer not following our instructions, there is no remediation.

2. If it is our fault or the kilns’ fault, you receive a complete Do-Over PLUS 10% bonus towards your remake


3. You may receive a refund in the same method you paid less a 30% experience fee.

Projects are ready for pickup in one week, simply come back in one week and ask for your project by the last name. We hope that you enjoy your masterpiece!
