In response to COVID-19, Franklin Park Conservatory will be closed to the public for three weeks starting Friday, March 13. The health and safety of our visitors and staff is our top priority, and this decision was made in alignment with official health and government recommendations. Refunds for ticket, class, experience and program purchases will be honored. Contact the Conservatory for details.

Hot Glass Studio Classes – Terrariums

Every Wednesday in May, June and July; except for May 6th

Join one of the Conservatory glass blowers as they guide you step-by-step through the process of making your very own glass piece of artwork. Pick your favorite colors or work with clear glass. No experience is necessary!

Each student will take home one piece of artwork. All glass pieces need overnight annealing (a cooling process) and will be ready for pick up or shipment the next day. *Shipment is an extra cost.

Open to children and teens ages 10-17 as long as a parent or guardian is present. The Hot glass studio is located outside in the North Courtyard and it is recommended to dress for the weather.

Create a piece of glass artwork with the help of a professional gaffer. No experience necessary! Items will be ready for pickup after 3pm the next day. Registration required. Plant kit included.
