Plan on spending 2-3 hours in the studio picking your pumpkins and watching the demos. This is a family friendly event and is FREE to attend. We encourage you to bring friends; it’s a great day to spend together!
“The atmosphere of the studio is completely fall harvest excitement!” Exclaims Janet Salimnen, a current employee at the studio. “We use corn stalks, hay bales, and wooden crates as accessories to decorate the studio and accentuate these beautiful glass pumpkins. It’s so magical at the studio you’ll want to take home a few pumpkins for yourself and friends to savor the magic!”
We’ll have our exciting product line up of pumpkins, featuring the signature “sugar” pumpkin and the Van Gogh series. Our famous recycled line of pumpkins are a line of lightly tinted blue pumpkins. “Many people start a collection only to find they need a ‘few more’ to round out their home display,” comments Michelle Plucinsky, co-owner of the studio. “Since we offer new varieties each year it’s always fun to come and purchase a few new styles from this year’s collection.”
“All the pumpkins are handcrafted at the Dearborn studio using century old traditional glassblowing methods much like you watch at Greenfield Village” notes Sue Dougherty, a student turned employee. “However, the glassblowers at the Glass Academy definitely add special touches with their brilliant colors and extra curly stems that you won’t find anywhere else but here!”
Pricing starts at $45 and goes up from there based on style, color, techniques used and curly stems. We have a great assortment of colors and styles, including our signature recycled pumpkins!
