Choose Between Two Options

During the Blow-A-Bubble experience, guests aged 9 and older blow a large, clear glass bubble, which they can upgrade with color ($7.50+), a twist ($14), or an ornamental loop ($18). Alternatively, artisans of any age press their handprint or footprint into a medium-size box in the QuickCast experience, then experienced glassworkers fill the cast with glass for a fun decoration. Both experiences take place during Hot Sand's walk-in hours: Friday from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m., Saturday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., or Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Finished products are usually ready for pickup in a week; shipping is available for an additional fee.

Hot Sand

Hot Sand’s studio buzzes with activity as instructors dip pipes into molten glass and then demonstrate how to blow the globs into recognizable shapes. Nearby, other students work on finishing their pieces, refining contours atop wooden blocks and polishing surfaces on a diamond wheel. Hot Sand's glass-blowing artists impart these techniques through basic walk-in experiences and immersive workshops, showing guests how to craft objects such as candy dishes, pumpkin-shaped ornaments, or one-time-use dodgeballs. Welcoming visitors of all ages, Hot Sand earned the distinction as a top kids' destination in New Jersey Monthly's 2012 Jersey Choice awards. The studio also expands the aesthetic tastes of the community through a gallery that showcases original works for sale.

Such a cool, unique experience! I would never have thought that glass blowing was an activity I could do, but now I'm proud to say I made my own glass bubble. I definitely want to take lessons in glass blowing now.
