FAQ’s

Here are some FAQs and Answers:

Q: What are your hours of operation?

A: Thursday – Monday / 10am to 6pm
Depending on instructor availability, private lessons may be scheduled outside of these times.

Q: What days do you do hold workshops? When can I pick up my piece?

A: Thursday-Monday / Our first appointment starts at 10am and our last appointment starts at 4pm.
We sometimes go a little later depending on the number of people in your group.

Q: Can children participate in the workshops?

A: Yes. We have all ages participating under safe moderation.

Q: What can I make during my private glass blowing class?

A: Usually one piece per person, and they are normally a large paper weight, ornament, flower or something similar.
If you have something in mind, feel free to talk to your teacher about what you want to make. If you are doing private rental or instruction time (NOT Groupon or first experience workshops), then you can work with our staff to make whatever is on your agenda.

Q: Should I bring anything to my class?

A: We suggest bringing a pair of lightly shaded sunglasses and water/something to drink.

Q: When can I pick up my piece?

A:Your piece will be available two days after it was made (pickup available during normal hours), and will be held for 90 days. We sort items by the date that you were in the studio. Please be sure to know the date you were in so that we may better serve you. (If you forget, your piece will likely be here even after 90 days. Just ask. )

Q: What happens if my piece breaks during the cooling process?

A: Option 1:We will remake your piece. We will make it the exact same style and colors that you did.
Option 2: Schedule a time to remake your own piece
Option 3: Pick something from inventory of equal value

Sometimes pieces break during the cooling process or when we are cold working them, (smoothing the rough edges.)

Q: Do you do custom pieces?

A: Yes! Send us an email at ohiocityglass@gmail.com with the colors and dimensions you want. We offer memorial glass (incorporated cremains into the glass) as well as coupling ceremony glass (for marriages, engagements, etc), lighting, chandeliers, sculpture, functional wares and decorative glass, as well as welding and some glass repair services.
We will get back to you with a quote from the artist who best fits your needs.

Q: What should I wear?

A: Please wear closed-toed shoes and a light, cotton shirt to the studio. If you have long hair, be sure it is tied back.

Q: Do the glass artists accept tips?

A: Yes, my workshop leaders are tipped employees.  Generally a $10 tip per person in the group is considered an acceptable amount.

Q: Can I take pictures or video while I am at Ohio City Glass?

A: Of course you can!
We encourage you to take pictures and video and always appreciate when we are tagged in your photos on Facebook and Instagram.
