Overview

You can blow your own glass. We offer the opportunity to have a hands-on glass blowing experience. We are opening the studio so that you and your family can have the chance to blow your own heirloom glass ornament or sun-catcher. With the help of our professional artists, you may choose colors, assist with working the piece, and actually trap your own breath in glass. Appointments are available throughout the year. Price is $40 per ornament, $35 per ornament for groups or 10 or more. Due to our production schedule we request that you contact us for availability.

This was too quick for the price. You get very limited hands on here. The girl did most of the work. Piece did come out great though and they ship it home for you. Just seems a bit of a tourist trap.More

A very fun quick stop. The DIY glass-blowing, with lots of oversight by the pro, was quick (about 15 minutes) and fun. The glass-blowing aficionado (Matt) was super friendly and an expert. My adult son and I enjoyed it. We only did about 20% of...More

We are actually not open Sunday and Monday, but basically we prefer an appointment to be scheduled if possible, but not always necessary. Best thing to do is give us a call either way. 423-265-2565
