The glassblowing experience is back again in time for the holidays!  New Horizons has partnered with John Chiles of Orwell Glass for an introductory lesson in glassblowing. Come try the art of glass, no experience necessary! John walks you step by step through the process of making an ornament of your very own. From applying color to the glass, heating your ornament and inflating it with air and yes, your air! You will experience firsthand the thrill of making hand blown glass art!  You can choose from a selection of bright colors and wide variety of graphite molds, which you also get to press into the hot glass to create your own suncatcher too.

Maybe you’re looking for gift ideas, we all have that one person that’s hard to buy for. Maybe you know someone that has a birthday or anniversary soon, this could be that very unique and special experience to share with them, what a fabulous keepsake and memory to have together!!
