Studio Activities

Make your day at the Shore a memorable one, when you create a glass memento. Each activity is one person per activity based.


 

QUICKCAST: ANY AGE!

SMALL BOX $35

MEDIUM BOX $45

* LARGE BOX $65

QuickCasts are for any age and make as a lifetime keepsake! You simply press your imprint into a sandbox (hand, foot, paw, figure and don't worry, it isn't hot!) with the help of a Hot Sand team member. Hot molten glass is then picked up and poured into your sandbox print, capturing the imprint; this is so neat to watch! Your imprint is then placed in our annealer to cool. All art glass must cool (anneal) for several days and may be picked up 7 days after you make it. Or you can make arrangements to have your pieces shipped. We’ll let you know the size, based on your imprint.

*Large QuickCasts can be added in the studio subject to availability.

YES, YOU CAN HAVE YOUR PET'S PAWS QUICKCAST.
