My 10 year was able to blow her own Christmas Ornament. She loved it! They were very nice to her and answered all of her many questions. Wonderful experience!

I was disappointed that we didn't get to do the make-your-own experience, as I was ignorant and did not make a reservation. The artist who helps with that was fully-booked, but it was still cool to watch the experts work from the viewing area. The...More

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.

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

We have many children come through the gallery to view the glass art. The artworks are on pedestals, we do not have things in glass cases. I think it would be safe and a wonderful experience. Tiffany
