|Facility:||New Orleans Glassworks & Printmaking|
|Description:||Located in a restored 19th-century brick building, the New Orleans School of GlassWorks & Printmaking Studio lets you watch artisans use their skills in glassblowing, printmaking, bookbinding, and related crafts in jewelry, metal sculpture, and papermaking. You're encouraged to stroll through each studio to discuss the processes with the artists at work in the open studios.
During summer, local culinary artists create chocolate and sugar sculptures. If you call at least 2 days in advance, you can design a colorful ornament, have a glass impression of your hand cast in solid glass, create a glass bead, or make your own prints on the star wheels press. Regularly scheduled classes, workshops, and private lessons are available.
