ABOUT THE EVENT

**Due to Covid-19, we are requiring reservations for all BYOOs.**

This is our most popular event at Orbix Hot Glass! Come design and literally “blow” your own ornament with the help of one of our glass artists. For this, we welcome people of all ages (okay you have to be at least 5 years old). Currently, we have several Saturdays set aside for BYOO sessions, as well as several spots during the week.

Reservations are required! Please contact us to book a time.

Ornaments are not available to take home the day that you blow them.  You may pick them up on a later date during our regular business hours or have them shipped.  The cost to ship is $8 for up to four ornaments to one address or $12 for more.

SCULPT YOUR OWN FLOWER

$75

(Must Be At Least 13 Years Old)

ABOUT THE CLASS

We are also taking appointments during the week for Flower Classes.

Have you ever wanted to actually sit at the gaffer bench and feel what it is like to shape hot glass?  In this class, it’s all about a hands-on experience in a fun atmosphere with a final product we know you will love. After watching us shape glass into a flower, it’s your turn to sit at the bench to sculpt your own from an array of colors. Our artists are there to step in and lend a hand or guide you as you shape the glass.  Each class is about one hour in length with a minimum of two people and a maximum of five. 

Reservations and full payment are required.

You may pick your flower up on a later date during our regular business hours, or have them shipped.  The cost to ship is $8 per flower.

OPEN STUDIO &
SECOND’S SALE DAY

Free

Open To Public

ABOUT THE EVENT

Two times a year – in the fall and spring – we open our studio doors for a day of educational demonstrations.

We offer them at a time when fall pervades Lookout with memorable hues and spring is knocking on our door with its light greens and shy woodland wildflowers.  It is a great time to explore the mountain and enjoy some art.  We also pull out our mishaps in the hot shop and offer them at a reduced price.  Hopefully, we will see you on the porches at one of these events.
