Visit a glass blowing studio; watch free demontrations; sign up for a class; check out the work for sale by local artists. East Falls Glassworks is Philadelphia's largest gallery and studio dedicated to hot glass. Please call before you stop by to make sure we are blowing glass on that day. Classes are offered for all levels of experience, check out the Saturday Experience sessions; you can make your own piece of glass art.

Took a pumpkin blowing intro class. The instructor was great, explained what to do and why. This was a fun experience and came away with a hand blown piece.
