Safety is our top priority in the glassblowing studio! Everyone who makes glass with us must read & sign the online safety waiver. You must also undergo an in-studio safety orientation. Assume everything in this studio is very hot or sharp. Therefore, be careful where you lean or place your hands. If you don’t know, don’t touch! You may opt to not participate in a particular step or activity. Just let us know. Making glass is all about having fun. It’s about exploring the process of working with glass. In the unlikely event, there is an accident please notify a staff member immediately.
Pay close attention to your instructor. A review of the equipment, tools, and safety rules are necessary. A glass maker will discuss the work process and the tools used. You should ask questions or let us know if you are uncomfortable at any time.
Hot and Sharp
A studio can be a dangerous environment where things can happen very quickly. Because of this, you must be prepared to stay focused and pay attention at all times. So, you must watch out for others and then, always announce when you are moving with hot tools or hot glass in hand.
We work with high temperatures. Therefore, hydration is important before, during, and after your lesson. If you feel dizzy, weak, or need a break, notify staff and move away from the equipment to rehydrate. Water is available for all workshop participants.
Safety Waivers Required
To ensure your safety and the safety of others, we require everyone to fill out a safety questionnaire. We reserve the right to deny access or remove any participant from an event based on our assessment of the individual’s potential risk of injury.
