At Hot Shop Glass, the health, safety, and well-being of our guests & staff has always been & continues to be of the utmost importance to us.
We have re-opened our glass fusing studio and you’ll notice some changes.
Reservations are now required for our studio so that we can control the numbers in our facility, facilitate physical distancing and allow time between sessions for staff to sanitize tools and work surfaces.
Our staff will all be wearing masks to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We request that you do as well. If you don’t have a personal mask, we have masks available to you for free as you enter our facility. Each student gets their own sanitized set of tools to use during their visit. Our studio has great air flow – with big garage and stable doors in front and back. These breeze is extra fabulous for artists in our Hot Shop but can sometimes be a little chilly for those sitting in the fusing studio. Bring along a sweatshirt, just in case!
We now have an online registration system, and require a $15 deposit for each person registered. This deposit will be credited toward the cost of whatever project you choose to make when you come. Our hope is that a deposit will help to prevent ‘no shows’ — We only have space for 6 (up to 9 depending on distancing needs) people during each session. No shows or adjustments in the number of people creating will affect our business as we will likely be turning people away for sessions due to increasing interest in this new and fun studio! Thanks for understanding! Reserve your spot online or give us a call.
Wednesdays 4-6pm and 6:30-8:30pm
Fridays 1-3pm , 3:30-5:30pm and 6-8pm
Saturdays 10am-noon, 12:30-2:30pm and 3-5pm
Our experience has shown that most guests spend about two hours creating their project. With that said, some folks know they just take longer to do their creative thing or may choose to do a bigger project (a garden stake) that just takes more time. If you know that’s your MO or plan, make a reservation for two slots. There is no cost for the time you are in our studio creating. You simply pay for the price of project you choose. Our space is limited, but on occasion we have held unfinished projects for people to come another day to finish.
What’s our Glass Fusing Studio?
Our spacious back room workshop area has been transformed into a beautiful well stocked glass fusing studio! With lots of samples for inspiration, and Pinterest at our fingertips, we can set you up to have a fabulous creative experience working with glass to make home decor, holiday gifts or jewelry.
Glass fusing is like creating mosaic: you to cut gorgeous colors of glass to create designs that are fired in a kiln to melt –or fuse together. Our studio requires no experience. We’ll show where everything is, how to cut glass and use a few simple tools to create the shape you want. Come by yourself or register with a friend….you aren’t locked into a certain project. You like snowmen and she wants to make a bracelet? No problem. You’ll just pay for the project you want to make, prices are all inclusive. If you like bling, we do have some fancy glass that is extra. ; )
Gift Certificates for our new studio would make a great gift!
