Plan to arrive at the workshop 10 minutes before your appointment. Before your experience starts, you can browse the Frederick Carder Gallery, watch others try their hand at glassmaking, or check out the classes happening at The Studio.
Pick Up or Ship Your Glass
Why does glass need to be annealed? Watch a short video about annealing glass to see what happens when glass is not properly annealed.
All objects made in the workshop (except for sandblasted objects) must go through an overnight annealing (slow cooling) process and will not be available for same-day pick-up. Most objects can be picked up the next day after 12:00 p.m. (please allow two days for beads/pendants made in the last two sessions of the day).
If this is not possible, domestic and Canadian shipping is available (international shipping is not available at this time). There is no charge for shipping flameworked beads and pendants.
