JOIN US ONCE. YOU'LL COME BACK. THEY ALL COME BACK.
Third Degree Glass Factory offers amazing glass art experiences for all ages, with a variety of fun and creative projects! Unlike our curriculum based Path to Independence classes, our Experiences are one-time projects where you work one-on-one with a glass artist!
Items may be picked up 7 days after your experience.
First Saturday Experiences
Make something amazing! On the First Saturday of every even-numbered month, Third Degree offers the opportunity to make a unique seasonal item of your own design!
April: Beer Steins
Glass Art Sampler
Our Glass Art Sampler lets you get hands-on in each of our three studios so you can get a taste of the different media our artists work in.
Glassblowing: Sculpt glowing molten glass to create a beautiful paperweight.
Flameworking: Melt down glass rods through a torch to create beads and small sculptures.
Fused Glass: Cut and layer cold sheets of glass & melt them inside a kiln to create a 6″x6″ tile of your own design.
Available Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 10:00a to 2:00p. Shipping options available at checkout.
Studio walk-ins are available only for groups of 6 or fewer.
Guests are encouraged to call ahead to check availability. First come, first served.
