Make Your Own Glass

Category:

“Make Your Own Glass” sessions at First City Art Center are a hands-on glass experience.  No previous glassblowing skills needed!

Large groups of 10+ may be scheduled in the evening. Groups smaller than 10 or individual appointments must be scheduled during regular daytime hours 10-3, on Fridays and Saturdays.  Please click on Sign Up to see available dates.

All glass needs to slowly cool in the annealer for 24 hours or longer, and the glass instructor may need to sand edges after the piece is cooled. Make Your Own Glass pieces will be in the office by the Thursday following your appointment. Please call or email to confirm your piece(s) are ready for pick-up at (850) 429-1222 or create@firstcityart.org.

If you would like your work shipped to you, the glass packing and shipment fee is $45. The instructor will build a special box for your piece to ensure the glass does not arrive broken. Please contact the office if you would like your work packed and shipped to you.

For more information, please contact the office at First City Art Center.
