I never got to be right next to a glassblower and participate in making something, so this was a fun experience.

There is nothing more entrancing than the magic of molten glass. Thank you for being part of the process. We are always glad to share our love of the material with others. Tiffany

You can watch glass being blown or help blow your own wineglass. There is art glass for purchase. I thoroughly enjoyed the time that I spent there and purchased a beautiful glass.

I liked watching the glass blowing, but it is a slow process, and they were teaching someone new to make a bowl. It was worth the stop, but I can't say I would go out of my way to see it. I definitly would not...More

We are glad you made stop. Glassblowing is one of the most difficult art forms I have ever tried, there is a steep learning curve, but after many years we still find it magical. So glad you had a good time watching the magic happen....More

Very talented artisans share not only their creations, but allow you the opportunity to experience their work first hand. You may watch them or even join in the forming of glass creations. To make it even better, it is free! Worth the stop!More
