Field Trips

The Hot Shop at the Coastal Arts Center of Orange Beach is a fully functional glass art studio where we enjoy sharing information about the art, science and history of glassblowing. Bring your organization or school for a fun and exciting presentation of glassblowing!

Guests will be introduced to:

  • The History of Glass
  • Physical properties of glass
  • Reactions of organic and inorganic materials to extreme temperatures
  • Physical forces and the affect on molten glass
  • Application of science in a glass studio

The presentation is adapted to the age and/or grade level in order to remain age-appropriate. Glassblowing is an exciting and educational experience for both children and adults.

The cost of a Hot Shop field trip (demonstration only) is $150.00.  Additional hands-on experience is available at a per person rate.  Every Hot Shop field trip can be custom designed for your group depending on your number of guests. Call for details.
