With the expert guidance of one of our glass artists & instructors, shape hot molten glass or arrange cold glass into beautiful objects! All programs are hands-on, one-on-one experiences. Ages limits range from 5 years (glass fusing) to 14 years (glass cutting), and 16 or older (glassblowing). Minors require a parent/guardian’s signature. Participants will receive a complimentary pass for the day. Anyone wishing to accompany you to watch your experience must purchase a general admission ticket. Please note that glass objects require time to slowly cool in a kiln to room temperature. We will contact you when your piece is ready for pick up or shipment, typically one to two weeks later.

WheatonArts can not be held responsible for minor flaws that may occur in the annealing process. Each object is handmade and may look different than the display samples. 

Cancelation Policy: A $25.00 fee will be charged to those who do not show up for their appointment. We require 24 hours notice to cancel an appointment; otherwise, it will be considered a no-show, except in the case of illness. Are you feeling unwell or showing symptoms of COVID-19? Please stay home. Appointments can be rescheduled by phone or email. 

COVID NOTE: *Following New Jersey State’s definition, people are considered “fully vaccinated” for COVID-19 two weeks or more after they have received the second dose in a two-dose series or two weeks or more after they have received a single-dose vaccine and any booster doses for which they are eligible as recommended by the CDC. Vaccines must be currently authorized for emergency use or approved by the FDA or the WHO. Class participants will be required to show proof of vaccination to participate. Instructors will be wearing masks. Participants are strongly encouraged to wear masks as glassblowing is a hands-on activity with instructors working closely with the participants to ensure safety with the material.
