What You’ll Do

Making your own Valentine’s Day gift for a loved one adds a thoughtful touch, especially if you personally forge the gift at 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit. Glass artist Nikolaj Christensen helps you do exactly that during hands-on workshops held before and on Valentine’s Day.

  • Learn from Glass-Blowing Experts
    The instructors at East Falls Glassblowing boast of a half-century of experience among them. During this class, one of the talented staffers will show you the ins and outs of transforming molten glass into art in the studio’s 800-pound furnace.

  • Craft a Custom Valentine’s Day Gift
    Guest create their own heart-shaped paperweight, forming it over flames and adding colors for a unique result.

  • Too Hot to Handle
    Because the finished artworks will still clock in at 1,000 degrees at the end of the session, they’ll need time to cool. Participants can return a week after the session to pick them up or pay a flat fee of $15 to have the finished product shipped.
