Workshops and Activities
Caesarea Glass offers a spectacular and meaningful experience that combines history and art in a fun, hands-on activity.
Children and parents, grandchildren and grandparents, tourists and Israelis, families, couples and groups. Everyone is welcome. Witness and try for yourself the wonderful process of glass blowing and enjoy an unforgettable experience.
Caesarea Glass recreates the activity of an ancient glass blowing workshop discovered in the Caesarea excavations in this very location. You'll get a chance to see a model of the actual ancient glass kiln found on site and the traditional glass blowing tools. We'll let you in on the secret of glass making and how it is produced from the local raw materials, and provide you with a glance into the history of local glass blowing and how it came to be in this area about 2000 years ago. You'll then be given a chance to experience the ancient craft of glass- blowing yourself, exactly as it was done in Caesarea during the Roman empire's reign.
In our workshop, we will perform the entire process of glass blowing together with you. We will start from the raw material – blazing hot glass in the kiln, and continue step by step as each and every participant contributes another feature, until a unique artifact is completed. All is done with your active participation, including actual glass blowing and shaping.
We offer a selection of fascinating demonstrations, workshops and tours on the ancient art of glass blowing. The activities are booked in advance and are excellent for families, couples and groups of adults, youth, students and tourists. The program is tailored to suit your group.
