Housed in the outdoor glassblowing pavilion, the Hot Shop features daily demonstrations by local, professional gaffers–master glass blowers–as they gather molten glass and transform it into a finished piece of blown-glass artwork. Every step of the process is described in informative, 25-minute sessions. Glass pieces created in the Hot Shop are available for sale at Botanica.
Try your hand at glassblowing! Check out available classes below, or register for a personal glassblowing session. Personal Glassblowing Sessions and Hot Shop Classes (excluding Sizzling Saturdays) are open to children and teens ages 10-17 as long as a parent or guardian is present.
