Covid-19 update

Due to the uncertainty of the Corona virus pandemic, we will remain closed as we monitor if the local cases increase or decrease over at least the next several weeks. Due to severe lung issues, Tom is in the high risk category of this virus.

Glass blowing classes can not happen at this time due to the social distancing issues involved with teaching. If you would like to take a class, please call Elaine to put your name on a list, and we will contact you immediately when we are able to resume teaching.

Group demonstrations are also on hold due to social distancing, but as with classes, please call to have your name put on a list.

If you would like to come in to our store in need of a gift, or to pick up an order you have on layaway, please call Elaine at 724-791-2100 to make an appointment.  This is not an inconvenience for us in any way, as we live right next door to the Glass Center.  If you do come in, please wear a mask for your safety as well as ours.

We appreciate your patience and understanding, and look forward to reopening as soon as it is safe to do so.

Take a FREE glass working field trip!

The Glass Blowing Center offers free group demonstrations for your group, club, or organization.  While you can see a glass blower every day in our in-store workshop, our group demonstrations offer a classroom environment in which various glass items will be made while addressing frequently asked questions, followed by a question and answer session. 


These demonstrations are designed to take some of the mystery out of this ancient art form.  Please call to schedule your appointment.

High School and University art departments are eligible for our visitor program in which one of our glass blowers will demonstrate and lecture your classes for an entire day. 

Past group demonstrations have included:

  • Schools
  • Senior Centers
  • Church Organizations
  • Boy Scouts
  • Girl Scouts
  • Cub Scouts
  • Brownies
  • Women's Clubs
