Mobile Glass Studio

Imagine a 2,000-degree furnace filled with molten glass — on wheels! The Hastings College Mobile Glass Studio is a great way to experience a bit of the Department of Visual Arts and Jackson Dinsdale Art Center (JDAC) at your school!

Our mobile glass blowing studio is available to travel to high schools across the region, where a Hastings College artist will demonstrate glass blowing techniques and working with glass.

During demonstrations, the artist will explain the entire process and help students understand the science behind working with glass, including the characteristics of glass, adding and mixing colors, how temperature influences the process and more!

The mobile studio includes a furnace that heats to more than 2,000 degrees to melt glass — plus houses all the equipment that’s needed, including a pipe warmer, annealer, tools and LP gas.

It’s an incredible experience — and here on campus, glass blowing is one of the most popular series of classes. We can’t wait to share the experience with you.
