Free Daily Demonstrations

As part of our free daily demonstrations, the New Orleans Glassworks extends to visitors Hot Glass Now, an operative component to our organization since its inception over 25 years ago.

Hot Glass Now grants visitors the opportunity to appraise firsthand the lifeblood animating glassblowing and sculpture. Observe our master-glassblowers while they work, and discover many of the techniques used to create designs exhibited in our glass collection and gallery.

Hot Glass Now comprises live demonstrations hosted daily in our open-working studios. Please verify there are no conflicts with our summer schedule.

As always, admission to Hot Glass Now – among all other daily demonstrations spanning our array of studios – is free-of-charge.

The frequency of demonstrations in our hot shop depends on the schedules of the artists. We recommend you Contact Us a few days before you plan to visit to see what is on the schedule.
