Jaime Hayon, in collaboration with The Corning Museum of Glass, invites participants to come together and learn about the wonderful world of glass: playfully discover the possibilities of colors and forms and create marvelous objects! Through our exploration, we should see the material in a new light, as if entering into a candy shop with children’s eyes for the first time. Expert glassmakers from the Corning Museum will be on hand to make components for your designs. Work with Jamie, Museum gaffers, and fellow participants to design artful objects around a theme and, together as a group, celebrate the finale with a fantastical installation.

Candy Glass Shop at Boisbuchet is presented with the support and expertise of the GlassLab program from the Corning Museum of Glass (New York). GlassLab is a fully containerized mobile glassmaking studio featuring high-efficiency equipment, allowing unprecedented access to the creative possibilities of molten glass.
