Team Building and Private Events

Glass making is a great team activity that focuses on creativity while emphasizing communication, trust building, experimentation and teamwork.

If you have a group and are looking for something out of the ordinary to do, then check out the glass arts events we organize here at the Bloomington Creative Glass Center.

We offer parties that include one, two and three hour lessons in glassblowing and fusing. Parties include 1-5 expert instructors (depending on the number of party goers) to guide the activity of your choice, with safety talks and demonstrations tailored to the age and interests of your group. Glass work made during the party will be cooled down to room temperature overnight, and packed for safe pickup.

We offer two types of events, hands-on and demonstration style, which can be held at your facility or at BCGC.

 

Off site events

Team Building Kiln Formed Project (Group Item): Starts at $500

Let us bring the glass fusing event to you! Our glass fusing instructors will work with your team members to create a fused mosaic platter, bowl or wall hanging with your business logo or other predetermined design. We will bring all of the necessary equipment, supplies, tools, and safety gear to complete the project. You provide the tables, chairs, and participants.
