Fire It Up at Pittsburgh Glass Center

We know the feeling all too well — when the weather warms and you’re just itching to make new plans, try new things, and go on new adventures. If you’re looking for an exciting activity that goes beyond the everyday, the Pittsburgh Glass Center should be your next stop. Just a mile away from many of the Franklin West apartments, the Glass Center is a perfect destination on weekday evenings and sunny weekends alike.

Check out the Glass Center’s calendar here to see what’s waiting to be explored — from beginner and advanced classes to dazzling exhibits displayed on the first floor. Now through July 30th, see Leana Quade’s unique art, which experiments with new ways to experience glass through light and fluidity.

The Pittsburgh Center is free and open to the public, but if you’re looking for a more hands-on experience, you can register for classes here. With a number of 2-hour beginner classes, like Marvelous Marbles and Glass Terrariums, your creativity will always have opportunities to flourish.

This is a summer for new adventures. Take advantage of all the neighborhood has to offer. Hey, and don’t forget to bring your best pals along! Maybe after you’ve made your first terrarium, you can celebrate your achievements with a refreshing brew at Primanti’s.

We’ll cheers to that!
