  • Explore the fundamentals of glass. Students select from a range of different festive, icky, or wonderfully creepy crawling options (round glass eyeballs, flat shaped bats, or 3D spiders) and with the help of Glass Shop instructor, Jason Dederich, you’ll make your own original halloween ornament.

    Glass blowing and forming flat shapes in glass is an art — the craft takes time to master. This session enables participants to join with a small group to get a sense of these processes. Learn more about shaping fine glass objects by working with Jason to create your own customized decoration that will last for many, many (and if you are very careful, perhaps eternal) Halloween eve festivities.
