Grand Rapids Glassblowing Studio will open its Fall 2018 session with the return of this event. You choose your pumpkin colors and design from our examples, and work with John to create a beautiful keepsake for yourself or for a gift.
John does the steps that require experience, but you actually blow to inflate your pumpkin to approximately 3 inches diameter. Pumpkins will have a curved stem as shown in the photo, and colors range from subtle pastels to vibrant fall hues.
Your pumpkin will need to cool slowly overnight to prevent cracking, so you may pick it up at a later time, or we will ship it to you for a fee. Each pumpkin is made with guests one-on-one, one-at-a-time, at the rate of about 3 pumpkins per hour.
Dates and times for this event will appear here in the fall of 2018. Enrollment begins at that time. The best way to receive notification of our schedule is to be on our email list. Please click below to make that request.
We will feature a sale of our larger glass pumpkins during this event.
