Looking for something fun and creative to do on your next get-together with that special someone, your bestie, or maybe even a family member? This this hot-glass “date” night is for you! You and your companion will learn how to gather, heat, and shape molten glass into beautiful forms for a one-of-a-kind piece of art! Each person will make at least one piece, choosing from fancy paperweights or unique drinking glasses! All materials are included. Absolutely no previous experience is required. Fee includes two participants, so only one individual in each pair should register. Our Hot Glass Date Night sessions are private, 90-minute sessions with our instructor and his assistant.

This event is brought to you by the Young Art Patrons, a membership affiliate group of The Columbus Museum.
