Make something really special - a gift from the heart!. You will transform molten glass into a small solid heart shaped paperweight with our expert help. 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 solid glass heart, and then partner with our professional glassblowers to create it. After applying and heating the colors you will sit at the glass blowing bench and learn how to use the “pucinellas” to shape and swirl the molten glass. When the interior design is complete the glass will be cased in clear crystal, and shaped into it’s final heart shaped form. The techniques to do this exercise, reveals ancient glass traditions, a true wonder to experience. This hot glass workshop takes about an hour as we demonstrate the methods, and make our way to your turn. You must pre-register to participate.
