Museum of Glass: Pop-up Glassblowing and Activities

September 6, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

While area museums prepare to reopen, Museum of Glass will activate its outdoor plaza over two weekends with live glassblowing, scavenger hunts, and artmaking activities.

The MOG Hot Shop Team will bring their talents to the Main Plaza with live glassware demos from the Museum’s Mobile Hot Shop, a fully equipped glassblowing studio on wheels. The Team will engage visitors in helping to determine colors and other traits of glasses in this unique, spontaneous design-blow experience.

In addition to demos, MOG Education staff will host a limited amount of hands-on activities, which will vary by day and are free to participate.

· Friday, Aug. 28 & Sept. 4 – Creating coneheads: They’re baaaack! Color and decorate a vintage conehead hat pattern.

· Saturday, Aug. 29 & Sept. 5 – Painting on glass jars.

· Sunday, Aug. 30 & Sept. 6 – Crafting suncatchers: Using recycled glass, create a 2D mosaic suncatcher to extend summer’s sunshine rays.

In accordance with COVID-19 safety guidelines, Museum staff will be wearing protective face masks and will ask that visitors do the same. Physical distancing will also be enforced and sanitizing stations will be available. Additional details available at museumofglass.org.
