30 Minute Hand Sandcasting

Glassblowing Introduction

The start of another school year has us thinking about memories, and their preservation. Keepsakes can be trite, but when done thoughtfully they capture a moment in time and serve as fond reminders as life continues on its path. The art of sand casting perfectly embodies this concept, so this month we invite you to bring your child to PG and create a one of a kind glass handprint in our studio! By pressing their hands into special sand, your child will leave an impression that will be filled with molten glass by our instructors, creating a lifelike casting you will treasure for years! Each 30 minute session will allow you to make one casting.
