Sandblast Saturday at Candlelight Glass

This Saturday, December 2nd is
Sandblast Saturday at
Candlelight Glass 

During our October & November open studio events, people had so much fun sandblasting their own glassware that we’ve decided to do it again, this coming Saturday.

How it Works 

1) You pick out the glassware you want, from a wide variety we have on hand including water, wine and beer glasses ranging in price from just $3 to $5.

2) You decorate your glass using stencils that you make from sticky back vinyl using one of our wide selection of punches including all sorts of animals, leaves, symbols, etc.  If you have some favorite punches of your own, you’re welcome to bring them to use. Some people even hand-cut their own stencils at home and that’s welcome too.

3) You sandblast your glass in our sandblast cabinet.  It’s really fun to do yourself, but if you’d prefer, we can do that part for you.
 
4) You wash off your glass and remove the stickers and tape.  Everything that was covered will still be clear and everything else will be frosted, making your design permanent.

This is a fun, creative project for all ages and a great family activity.  Some people enjoy it so much that they come back again and again. Bring your spouse and your kids and invite your friends. You’ll all have fun and leave with some special keepsakes for yourself or unique gifts to give away.

The rest of the studio, including our showroom, will be open if you’d like to shop or just ask questions. We’ll also have a selection of pre-sandblasted glassware featuring more complex designs available for purchase and we are happy to consider commission requests for custom glass art, including sandblasted designs or fused glass.

Sandblast Saturday happens on
Dec 2nd, from 10am to 4pm at

RSVP’s are not required, but if you’re planning to bring a large group or make a large quantity of glassware, please send us a message to let us know how many and what type of glassware so we can be sure to have sufficient quantities on hand.  If you signed up during one of our open studio events, we already have your info.

We’re looking forward to seeing you and having lots of fun on December 2nd.
