Michigan Icicle ™

The Michigan Icicle ™ is our most popular glass class in the Dearborn studio. This hands on glassblowing class is the perfect way to spend a chilly friday evening or a cool weekend day! During this experience you'll get to use our special recycled glass recipe.

During this 1 hour experience you will get a behind-the-scenes look at our glass blowing studio, tour of BATCH gallery, and create a beautiful glass keepsake in a safe environment. (Time may vary depending on how many participants are in the class.) 

The instructor will demonstrate how to make the Michigan Icicle. Students will each take turns, and one by one, the icicles will be made.   Adding some white ‘snow’ to the surface of the liquid molten glass to color the icicle is optional and usually preferred.  Using glass hand tools, gravity, and creative insight, this ‘blob’ will be snipped, pulled and stretched to create the basic icicle shape. 

To finish the icicle, our talented craftsmen will attach a glass loop at the top of the icicle for hanging, then place it in the annealer, a cooling oven, to cool to room temperature overnight.  

This is an entry-level class, no experience is necessary. We supply all the tools, color, and materials.  

You will make one icicle per class but can sign up multiple times to make more than one. Sign up for two classes in one day and make two items! Or come back another day! You can take the same class more than once and see how your work progresses, does it become easier? What did you/will you do differently in your next class?

 This Michigan Icicle ™ is a trademark item, designed exclusively for the Glass Academy.  This is an exciting class you won’t want to miss!  Sign up today!
