Here’s what to expect at our FREE weekend shows:
You will have the opportunity to watch glassblowing demonstrations all day, and you can commission that perfect pumpkin you have always wanted! See how the handmade process is done and what makes our products so special.
We will have plenty of amazing and beautifully handcrafted pumpkins on display. Plan on spending 2-3 hours in the studio watching the live demos, browsing, and carefully selecting the perfect piece for your home. 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 2017 signature pumpkin, along with Sugars and the Van Goghs. Our famous recycled line of pumpkins are a line of lightly tinted blue pumpkins. “Many people just buy one or two 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 fresh styles from the latest collection.”
“All the pumpkins are handcrafted at the Dearborn studio using centuries-old traditional glass blowing methods much like you see 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 $38 and goes up from there based on style, color, and techniques used. We have a great assortment of shapes, sizes, and hues, including our signature light blue recycled pumpkins!
