Making Valentine’s flowers at Pittsburgh Glass Center.

Pittsburgh Glass Center will offer a Make It Now Valentines event from 4-9 p.m Feb. 8 at the facility at 5472 Penn Ave.

The hands-on activity is open to couples, friends and families, according to a release.

No experience is necessary for the 15-minute walk-in workshop. Those attending can make their own glass flower, heart pendant or personalized fused valentine.

Cost is $40 per flower or $30 for heart pendants or fused valentines. Experienced glass artists work one-on-one with participants to offer guidance and tips, the release adds.

Flower crafters will manipulate and sculpt molten glass from the 2,200-degree furnace, add color and shape a glass flower approximately 8 inches long.

Pendant makers will melt rods of colorful glass at the torch and sculpt the melting glass into a heart-shaped pendant that will be ready to wear after cooling.

Those making a fused valentine will start with a 4-by-4-inch flat, blank square of glass and then layer various shapes and colors of glass to create their own design. Personalized messages can be painted onto the valentines, the release adds.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
