This unique hands-on 'Hot Shop' adventure is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity to blow your own glass art in the Last Frontier - complete with real gold in your finished piece! Escape to the tranquility of beautiful Jewell Gardens for a very personal and fun filled glassblowing workshop. You'll keep the glass you make, and we'll even take care of the shipping after it cools to anywhere in the world. From the moment you leave the pier you'll know you're on a very different kind of excursion - this experience has been carefully designed not to be a 'tour' in the traditional sense, but rather an exciting learning adventure on a very personal scale.

Upon arrival at Jewell Gardens, your guide will give you a private orientation to this spectacular Northern Show Garden and our Hot Shop where you'll learn the ancient art of working with molten glass to create your ultimate Alaskan memento - an ornament for hanging in a window or on your Christmas tree - or use it as a float in your garden pond. You are the designer, before blowing your piece you'll choose your color combinations and whether you want stripes, swirls or spots.

In the spirit of the Gold Rush, we even offer you the chance to incorporate 24K gold for spectacular effect. Following the Hot Shop studio experience you'll be treated to a delicious tea service, lunch, or light dinner (depending on the time of day) before returning to your ship. This exciting new program is limited to just ten participants so reserve your space now.

Please note: Participants must be at least 7 years of age. Finished pieces can be shipped from the Hot Shop. Participants are advised to wear cotton or other natural fiber clothes if possible - protective lab coats, safety glasses, and individual sterilized mouthpieces are provided
