Date Night Half N Half

December 17, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm


Experience a very special date this year at J. Draper Glass.

Let the team of J. Draper Glass mesmerize you with hot glass demonstrations for a greater understanding of the art of fire with hand blown glass.

Play together & understand how soft the glass is to make your creations. Each experience offers unique techniques to create your masterpiece. Learn how to roll into frit (crushed colored glass), pick up chards, twist, tool, press and cut the soft glass.  Watch the bubbles expand with your own breath as you help each other shape & blow the glass. With great guidance, have a hands-on experience with hot glass to treasure for years.
