What do you do at Glassworks?
Is this for kids or adults?
For young children (3 -6 years) we have prepared kits with written and visual instructions included. For children under 10 they can work with small pieces of glass to build a design, we have templates to help. Guests aged 10+ have the option to cut glass to complete their projects.
At Wine on Wednesday from 5-10pm we are for adults only! You may bring your own beverages but no food, please. We provide wine glasses, bottle openers.
All other days, including the ‘First Friday’ of the month when we open late until 9pm, are for everyone, kids and adults alike.

What if I need to cancel?
Reservations for parties and groups are non refundable. In the event of adverse weather causing us to close the studio we will offer you the opportunity to reschedule your event.
How long does it take to make something?
During busy times your session will be limited to 3 hours to allow other guests the chance to make a project. The studio fee included in your project cost allows for 1 additional visit if needed. Additional visits after this will be charged at $10 per visit.
Each piece is then in the kiln for 1 or 2 firings at around 20 hours each, so it takes several days to fuse (melt) and slump (mold) your piece and get it ready for pick-up. Your projects are ready for pick-up one week after your visit. We do NOT call when projects are ready, you just come back at your convenience.
What should I wear?
Where is the studio located?
The studio is located in Downtown Morristown next door to Swiss Chalet Bakery, minutes from the I-287 and a short walk from Morristown Train Station.
Where do I park?
Are you wheelchair accessible?
What is the cost?
There is no studio fee. Charges for studio time are only made if:
- Two or more people work together on a project; in which case there is a $10 per person sharing charge. This charge does not apply to an adult assisting a small child without the use of tools.
- It takes you more than the 2 visits permitted to complete your project; in which case there is a $10 charge per additional session.
Do you offer any discounts?
All Field Trips are discounted for schools, camps and Scout groups.
Do you sell Gift Certificates?
What is glass fusing?
It's glass, how do I stay safe?
It is the responsibility of parents or accompanying adults to ensure the safety of minors, including making sure that they do not run or eat in the studio.
How do I get my project back when it's done?
Shipping is available for $12 handling + the actual USPS cost. You can decide to ship while you are here or call us later to arrange it.
What if my piece breaks...?
Stuff happens, everywhere including in our kilns. If regretfully something happens to your piece in our firing process, the following is our policy:
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
You may receive a refund in the same method you paid less a 30% experience fee.
Please know we do everything we can to make your experience here enriching and engaging and we do everything we can to aim for your intended outcome. We apologize in advance for any time we fall short of this goal.
Save the pieces! Give us a call or send us an email with a photo. We may be able to repair your piece or offer suggestions on how you can recycle the pieces into a new project. A firing fee may apply.
