Make Your Own Glass Pumpkin at the Corning Museum of Glass

*The event has already taken place on this date: Mon, 11/30/2020
A seasonal favorite, this experience allows you to work with hot glass up close while staying on the cool end of the glassblowing iron at all times. You’ll start by choosing the glass colors you want to use for your pumpkin, and then partner with our professional glassblowers to create your own unique fall glass piece.

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email so we can update it immediately.

Using The Studio's new alternate inflation device, you will shape the pumpkin by controlling airflow through the moving blowpipe as the glassblower guides the glass with special tools. After you and the glassblower have shaped your pumpkin, it is removed from the blowpipe, a glass stem is added and it is placed in an oven to begin an overnight slow cooling process. Glass pumpkins are ready for curbside pick up the following day or may be shipped for an additional fee within the U.S. and Canada. Open to all ages. Spots fill quickly! Booking your experience online before your visit is recommended.
