This show spotlights our signature spring glass creations; original design blown glass eggs, sparkling glass nest bowls and glass bunnies ~all new styles for 2023! All glassware is available for purchase and special commissions will be accepted only during this live glass blowing show.
Family friendly glassblowing demonstrations are scheduled throughout the day, starting at 1pm and lasting until 4pm. This is an educational show with free street parking available.
Glass Academy host and co-owner, Michelle Plucinsky, says, “We’re super excited to welcome back in all our friends and family for our signature shows. Since 1993 we’ve been hosting shows where the public can come in and watch glass blowing for FREE! There are also giveaways, no purchase necessary to win all sorts of glass prizes and classes, even some of the demos we make during the show.”
Every year, the Glass Academy creates a decorative spring-themed environment, making the gallery feel like a colorful glass garden featuring handcrafted glass slugs, snails, sprouts, mushrooms, chicks, nest bowls, and more!
Some of these educational live glassblowing demonstrations will be posted on our Facebook and YouTube channels to watch throughout the day. Custom orders are accepted and encouraged which really lend to the excitement of the show.
“These special commissions are crowd favorites, where our customers get to choose their own colors in our spring line and our talented craftsmen bring their designs to life in glass” says Chris Nordin, co-owner of the Glass Academy. “This is the fun part where families and guests will stay for hours to enjoy the demonstrations and learn something new, then purchase a handcrafted glass souvenir from the gallery as a family keepsake.”
Prices start at $8 for magnets with mid range items from $48-88 and select custom orders starting at $250. Batch Gallery is host to many other glass products with seasonal appeal, including pumpkins, cacti, ornaments, and the Michigan Pine™, a studio master-designed product from artist Chris Nordin.
