Work with a member of our studio team to sculpt a heart from molten glass. These sessions (and the hearts) make lovely gifts!
This experience will last for about an hour and is delivered in a small group setting with no more than 7 people. A member of the Glass Studio team will first demonstrate the production of a coloured heart and then you will get to work directly with a glass maker who will help you apply powdered coloured glass to glass gathered from the furnace, melt in the colour and pattern the glass using an optic mould. You will then use a metal knife to sculpt the molten glass into a heart form. This is cooled down overnight in a kiln and will be packaged and ready for collection or postage two days after your session.
