Glass Manufacturing Workers

Exploring This Job

If you are interested in making glassware, art and shop courses in high school will help you develop manual dexterity and learn about some of the tools and techniques used in glassmaking. Community art centers and adult education programs frequently offer classes in glassblowing, molding, and stained-glass construction. With the help of a teacher or school counselor, arrange to visit a glass manufacturing plant or a shop where artisans work with glass. One interesting field trip would take you to the Corning Museum of Glass at the Corning Glass Center in Corning, New York. The museum has nearly 50,000 glass objects, from more than 3,500 years ago to the present; its library is the main research center for students of glass. And you can see a demonstration of actual glassblowing at the museum's Hot Glass Demos.
