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.

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