Hot Shop

Housed in a covered outdoor pavilion in the North Courtyard, the Hot Shop features glassblowing demonstrations by local, professional gaffers. The gaffers will walk you through every step of the glassblowing process as they gather molten glass and transform it into a finished piece of artwork.

These daily 25-minute demonstrations are included in admission when the Hot Shop is open. Glass art from Conservatory gaffers can be purchased at Botanica Gift Shop & Greenhouse.

Hot Shop Studio Classes

Studio classes and personal sessions are sold out for the season! More information on next year’s classes will be available in March 2022.
