The St. Petersburg Arts Experience

The Morean Arts Center has been at the center of St. Petersburg’s burgeoning arts scene since 1917 and offers a lot to residents as well as visitors to the Tampa Bay region.  It is home to the Morean Glass Studio & Hot Shop where four times daily a glass blowing demonstration is given by local artists.   

At the Morean, you can blow your own glass pumpkin, and after that, blow your own holiday ornament.  This unique experience to work one-on-one with a professional glass blower is a great way to bring back a custom souvenir of your visit to the Tampa Bay area.  The Morean offers this glass blowing experience daily which lasts roughly 30 minutes and costs $75 with advance reservations.   

The glassblowers explain the science behind glass blowing and work with you to help you design and create your very own glass masterpiece.

For something unique, educational and entertaining, we highly suggest the Morean Glass Studio & Hot Shop whether you are going for a one-on-one personal glass blowing experience or attending one of the four daily public demonstrations.  The retail store is an amazing place too and is considered the largest art glass store in the Tampa Bay area with everything from jewelry to walls of art glass that are absolutely stunning.  For additional information or to make reservations call 727-822-7872.
