    This experience allows you to work with hot glass up close, while staying on the cool end of the glassblowing equipment at all times. You'll start by choosing the glass colors you want to use in your ornament, and then partner with our professional glassblowers to create it. You will shape the ornament by blowing air through the moving blowpipe as the glassblower guides the glass with special tools. After you and the glassblower have shaped your ornament, it is removed from the blowpipe, a glass loop is added and it is placed in an oven to begin an overnight slow cooling process. Ornaments are ready for pick up the following week or may be shipped for an additional fee within the US and Canada.

    Call 207-664-0222 to register. You will be scheduled to arrive during a one hour time slot.

    When you get to our hot shop, please check in at the front counter. There you will receive some information on color choices and we will verify any payment info you may have given us to reserve your spot.
    You can expect to spend about an hour in the shop, as we give you a safety orientation and make our way to your turn. Making a blown glass ornament  is a swift process (only about 15 to 20 minutes). The glass maker must work with the blower (you) to both expand the glass to its largest and thinnest capacity while also squeezing it to create the very smallest of openings at the crack off point of the blow pipe. By its very nature, making an ornament happens quickly but it is so memorable and dramatic! It's the perfect introduction to how hot glass works.
