Following recommendations from federal and state officials for the COVID-19 pandemic, and out of concern for our employees and guests, Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens will continue its closure through May 31. Refunds for ticket, class, experience and program purchases will be honored. Contact the Conservatory for details.

All donations up to $25,000 are being matched thanks to a generous donor. If you'd like to help the Conservatory through this unprecedented challenge, please visit the Philanthropy page.

Hot Glass Studio Classes – Vessels (Sizzling Saturdays)

Every Saturday (April – Jan. 2), create a vessel of your choice – candy bowl, bud vase or tumbler.

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.

No experience is necessary. Pre-registration is required.
