CANCELLED Glass Blowing: Behind The Scenes Experience

October 9, 2021 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Saturday, October 9

4:30 – 6:30 p.m. 

Flame Run Studio on West Market Street

$100 nonmembers | $85 WBG members (use code WBGMEMBER at checkout to receive discount)


If you’ve walked by our new Leslie Botanical Classrooms, you’ve experienced Brook White’s glass piece, Synthesis. This program will give you a look behind Brook’s process, the creation, and the installation of the piece.  Participants will have the opportunity for a guided tour of Flame Run with Brook,  and have the opportunity to help create a take-home decorative glass bowl. You’ll experience a 2,100°F oven, glass being pulled out, color added (of your choice), and it all twisting together to create beautiful lines and shapes.

Your pieces can be picked up the following day at the Waterfront Botanical Gardens.

This is a high heat environment. It’s recommended to wear layers, closed toe shoes, and bring water.  There are some vending machines available in the lobby.

Accessibility friendly. Ages 18+
