Glass has been made in Nuutajärvi since 1793. During working hours, glassblowing can be observed in the Tavastia Vocational College hot shop or the Lasikomppania hot shop.
Glassblowing is also an entertaining activity for groups visiting Nuutajärvi; for instance, to enliven a training day or in connection with a guided tour. With glassblowers’ assistance, anyone can give glassblowing a try, and the self-blown tankard or vase engraved with the maker’s name and date is a great souvenir of a memorable experience. The resulting products are ready on the following day and are dispatched to the group leader as agreed.
