Walk-In Open Studio
Anyone Can Be a Glass Artist – No Experience Necessary!
Our Walk-In Open Studio sessions start with you choosing your own project to make. First time visitors to Glassworks Studio will then receive full instruction and experienced associates are available to support you throughout the design and making process.
Guests aged 10+ have the option to cut glass, for younger customers or those who do not wish to cut the glass we have small pre-cut pieces; amazing projects can be created either way.
Feeling shaky? You can choose a template or look at an assortment of idea books for inspiration. For young children (3 -6 years) we have prepared kits with written and visual instructions included.

Reservations are recommended on weekends or during busy holiday periods.
Step 1. Select Your Project
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
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
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 5. Finishing Up
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
