Learn about hot glass at The Melting Point!

Educational Opportunity

The Melting Point is a hot shop, torchworking studio and gallery where you can come and learn how to do glassblowing, sandcasting and lampworking (aka torchworking) in a state-of-the-art facility. Within the gallery is an abundance of inspirational art that has all been created in studios such as those at The Melting Point. You can walk in and do a short 30-45 minute blow-your-own micro class, schedule 24 hours ahead and take a mini 3-hour or 6-hour beginner classes in torchworking or if you become more enamored, you can take a 2 or 3 day class in glassblowing! The Melting Point features visiting artists from across the nation and across the world in the lampworking studio. Visiting national artists demonstrate their skills in the hot shop on an invitational basis. No matter what it is about glassblowing or lampworking, you can most likely learn it at The Melting Point.
