Christopher DeMott opened Kinship Glassworks in 2020 in a 5,000 square foot state-of-the-art, full-service glass blowing studio, learning center, and gallery in Milford. He sells and showcases quality handmade glass products there, plus teaches the fundamentals of the craft to the community along with his talented team. Hi, Ryan Furbush!
Playing with ? at Kinship Glassworks!
The Glass Experience
The one where you get to feel the heat, turn the pipe and help create your very own ornament, pumpkin, or fill in the blank! ? During your glass-blowing session, you’ll pick your item, colors, and assist Chris and Ryan step-by-step through the creation of your one-of-a-kind keepsake.
Ways to stay warm this winter
A blog post we’re working on! Here’s number 1!
Chris gathers the glass
Roll + smoosh in the color (looks like sprinkles!)
We like to speak in technical terms.
But not too much and not too little…
Don’t worry, you’ll be guided!
Add a hanging hole
You don’t have to do that bit…just hold your ornament still for them while the guys do their magic!
You’ve made a super special ornament! It has to cool down first though, so they’ll mail it to you or you can stop by to pick it up if you live locally!
Celebrate a birthday like never before, or host the next team-building outing your coworkers are sure to remember or get a group of friends for an amazing night out!
Prior to your glass blowing session, your group will get a quick safety brief and overview of the studio. Kinship Glassworks offers a BYOB option, and you are free to bring food and refreshments for your guests.
