GLASS DISCOVERY

During your hands-on Glass Discovery, you will work one-on-one, in a team, or in a small group (5 or less) with our professional glass instructors to make your choice of a globe sculpture or pint drinking glass. Depending on the size of the group, the globe sculpture takes 1 - 1 1/2 hours and the pint glass takes 1 1/2 - 2 hours. This Foci MCGA signature hands-on experience is designed to provide participants with an exciting introduction to working with molten glass. The perfect activity for the curious, the adventurous and the romantic. The art that is made will take a couple of days to cool, so you will need to arrange for someone to return to the studio to pick it up. Bookings are available seven days a week (except major holidays) from 9AM - 6PM. In order to secure your reservation, please schedule at least 7 days in advance.

Must be at least 14 years old, in good health, and able to work independently. Ages 10-13 are permitted if student is at least 5' tall and accompanied by parent/guardian. Glass Discoveries have an expiration date of one year from the date purchased.

Glass Demonstration

Our Glass Demonstrations are live educational experiences, catered to your group, providing an insight into working with various hot glass techniques. Narrated by a glass expert, the FOCI MCGA Glass Demonstration provides an informative and entertaining look at what glass is, how it behaves at high temperatures, and how people manipulate glass to create beautiful works of art. The demonstration is appropriate for ages 5 and up, with older groups getting more advanced information. The demonstration lasts a little over an hour, and can be booked at any time that fits your schedule. In order to secure your reservation, please schedule at least 7 days in advance to insure we have room to host your group.

HOT GLASS SOCIAL/PINT GLASS SOCIAL

The Hot Glass Social is a group activity for 6 or more participants that lasts about 2 hours and gives everybody an opportunity to create their own glass sculpture. The thrill of shaping molten glass is unlike anything else available in the Twin Cities metro area. This is an excellent team building experience and truly a unique special event. Your group may bring food and drinks (beer, wine as well if 21+) to enjoy. The art that is made will take a couple of days to cool, so you will need to arrange for someone to return to the studio to pick it up. Bookings are available seven days a week (except major holidays) from 9AM - 6PM. In order to secure your reservation, please schedule at least 7 days in advance to insure we have room to host your group.

The Pint Glass social is a variation on the Hot Glass Social, but you will be mentored in the process of making an actual pint drinking glass. The process is more advanced and more intensive than the sculptures that are made in the hot glass social, so plan for a bit more time in the studio and get ready for a bigger challenge!
