Private Glassblowing Demonstrations
This is a great option for school field trips. The narrated glassblowing demonstrations include a brief history and chemistry of glass and Q&A.
Groups of 20 or less are most comfortable in the shop space but we have hosted larger parties in the past. An additional fee may apply for groups larger than 25 attendees. Each attendee will need to sign a waiver, or bring a waiver signed by their legal guardian. Please be sure to review our studio participant policy as well.
The item(s) made will be determined by the glassblower and belongs to Decatur Glassblowing. Of course, if there are certain items you are interested in seeing made, let us know when you book. If you would like to purchase the piece made during the demo, please let the glassblower know and arrange payment after the demo.
A studio tour may be permitted at the end of your demo but please request it at the time of booking as availability will vary.
You may make a piece after the demonstration for an extra charge per person and depending on which item you make. Please call us to discuss details and booking.
Public Glassblowing Events
We host Open House events several times a year. Any upcoming events will be posted below. These events are open to the public and our Gallery will be open for sales. These events are open to all ages but please review our studio setting and attendee policy before making plans to come. Usually we will provide food, drinks, and music in addition to live glassblowing demonstrations by DG owner, Nathan Nardi and other local artists.
Parking is limited to a few spots in front of our building on gravel and one paved handicap space. Street parking is currently free on Freeman Street or Weeks Street. Be sure to pay attention to traffic cones and signs for areas where you cannot park on the street. We suggest carpooling or using ride share services or public transportation. We are a short 10 to 15 minute walk from both the Decatur and Avondale MARTA stations.
