Tupelo Honey Glassworks, in partnership with The Hot Glass Academy, are bringing their mobile glass studio to The Shops at the Hub for a weekend of glassblowing February 17, 18 and 19, noon to 6 pm each day. The pop up studio will provide a one-of-a-kind glass blowing experience for the whole family (minimum age 5 years old).
According to glass artist Tim Nolan, his 20-minute workshop will give the customer a hands-on glass blowing experience. Tim says, “With the help of our glass artists, customers will be able to design and create their own unique glass ornament. Prior experience is not necessary!” Customers will be able to pick from a variety of colors and participate in the entire glassblowing experience from start to finish. All blown glass ornaments will be available for pick up the following day, once they have had a chance to cool. The cost is $55.
In addition to making your own ornaments, the glass artists will offer free demonstrations of larger blown glass items. Many of the artists’ works will be available for sale during the weekend.
Tim Nolan, owner of Tupelo Honey Glassworks, has worked with glass for nearly 30 years and for the past 10 years as a glassblower. Best known for his glass pumpkins, Tim has lead the First City Art Center’s Pumpkin Patch in Pensacola.
