The Hot Shop at the Coastal Arts Center of Orange Beach is a fully functional glass art studio where we enjoy sharing information about the art, science and history of glassblowing. Bring your organization or school for a fun and exciting presentation of glassblowing!
Guests will be introduced to:
- The history of glass
- Physical properties of glass
- Reactions of organic and inorganic materials to extreme temperatures
- Physical forces and the affect on molten glass
- Application of science in a glass studio
The presentation is adapted to the age and/or grade level in order to remain age-appropriate. Glassblowing is an exciting and educational experience for both children and adults.
The cost of a Hot Shop field trip (demonstration only) is $175. Additional hands-on experience is available at a per person rate. Every Hot Shop field trip can be custom designed for your group depending on your number of guests. Call for details.
