Glass with Lisa Pelo

Learn basic glass-forming techniques and make your own unique item with glassblowing artisan, Lisa Pelo! 

Place is limited and registration is required. Please click on the dates below to sign-up.

Location: 6th Street Arts Alley

Choose which piece you would like to create: a paperweight, infinity bowl, or glass pumpkin; then register for a one-hour timeslot on the corresponding day. Each piece is hand-crafted by you and can be customized using an array of colored glass. Lisa and her team of glass artists will demonstrate and guide you through each step – from safety instructions to the cooling oven. 


Lisa Pelo is an Indiana artist working with glass and metal as well as the owner and operator of Hot Blown Glass Studio and Gallery, which offers year-round glass classes, lessons, glass workshops, studio rentals, and steel fabricating workshops. Lisa’s mobile glass studio allows her to demonstrate glassblowing at all kinds of events and to lead interactive, hands-on glass-forming workshops in places like downtown Columbus. 


Lisa’s original handmade glass artwork will also be available for purchase.

Good Vibes Only
October 21-23

Bring your friends and family to watch you work! Experience 6th Street Arts Alley as a pedestrian-only space throughout the weekend.


We’ll have the street closed, stools out and umbrellas up so you can have a picnic or some sips while taking in the atmosphere. Be sure to stop in 411 Gallery on Friday and Saturday to view Holding Space by Amy Greely and Living in Color by Daren Redman.
