Learn how to safely heat, shape, and add color to make a piece of glass art: a beautiful glass paperweight. Then work one-on-one with a skilled artist at The Morton Arboretum’s Glass Pumpkin Patch to design and create your own! Meet at the demonstration area of the Glass Pumpkin Patch. Spend time with the glass pumpkin artists, learn about the art of glassblowing, see a demonstration, then work on making your own glass art. Go home with a special Arboretum memento.
This program meets in person at the Arboretum.
