Glass Christmas Ornament Making Workshop
Make your own ornament at Bobby Sharp Glassworks! This experience allows you to work with hot glass, and one -on-one with instructors to design your own blown glass ornament. You will start by choosing a design followed by your desired colors. Then, you will be assisted by a professional glassblower to create your ornament.
The instructor will gather the hot glass out of the furnace and then your colors and design will be added. You will have the opportunity to inflate your ornament by blowing air through the moving blowpipe (or: “through a sanitized personal hose connected to the pipe”) while a professional glassblower guides the glass with special tools to create a constriction that allows the glass to come off the pipe. After attaching a hook, your ornament will be placed in an oven to begin an overnight slow cooling process. Ornaments are ready for pick up the following day or may be shipped for an additional fee within the U.S.
