2020 Festival Event:
Play with Fire!
Be a glassblower! Glass Axis will open our doors for glassblowing demonstrations, classes and tours of our facility. We will offer free demos and studio tours throughout the day where you can see our artists work with glass in its hottest form: as a thick, gooey liquid.
Our glass furnaces, each containing a crucible full of molten glass held at over 2000 degrees Farenheit, are located in our intense studio. Artists touch, poke, twist, and cut the glass while bringing 3D sculptures and art pieces to life. Feeling daring? Try it for yourself with one of our specially priced glass projects, only available during the COSI Science Festival.
Groups will start at the beginning of each hour for classes and fill on a first come, first serve basis. Come see us on May 6, 2020 from 11am-4pm. Classes will begin at 11am, 12pm, 1pm, 2pm, & 3pm. We suggest checking in 30 minutes prior to each hour to ensure your spot.
- Small Sculpted Glass Paperweight(Ages 9+) $20
- Small Fused Glass Plate (ages 6+) $20
- Spin Art (all ages) $10
Some of the glass pieces will need to stay in the kilns at Glass Axis and then can be picked up after 3-5 days.
