We visited Callahan's Firedhouse in 2015 and decided then that when we returned in 2016, we'd try to take a lesson and make our own items. We were able to do it and had a great time. You're more a of a helper than a do-er but that makes sense considering you're working with glass at 2200 degrees. As the... More

Located in a cute historic old firehouse this is a beautiful store full of small and large glass blown items that are actually affordable! Compared to designs that are often thousands, you can find an adorable pumpkin for $40, glasses that you can buy as a set, and other small to larger items depending on your budget. They are often...

Bought several items here when we were visiting Langley. Really enjoying the items. They have everything from wishing stones to large beautiful bowls and other decorator pieces.

Callahan's Firehouse is a neat building filled with cool stuff in a charming town. Reason enough to visit, don't you think? But, it gets so much better than that! Callahan's offers the pretty unique experience of actually participating in glassblowing with a pro. We had Patrick, and he was amazing. He was personable and knowledgeable, friendly and clear; he explained... More

Great venue in the old fire station. Guys are great, friendly and very helpful. They offer a short glass blowing experience and it's perfect for a first time exposure. You get to be hands on just enough to not get into trouble! It's hotter and you're closers than you think. Give it a try!

Being a retired Volunteer Fire Fighter this place lured me in. The firehouse is in the same state as it was when it was used by the Langley FD. We were impressed with the quality of the Glass Blown items they had. We purschased a glass Pumpkin to remind us of our trip. What better use for the building to... More

Always wanted to try working with glass so it was a perfect opportunity on vacation. Also, lots of very cool items in their store and they ship to your home.

We brought a group to Whidbey Island for a few days. If you go to Langley, there are so many wonderful outdoor experiences that glassblowing might not be at the top of your activity list. Consider it though - It is so amazing! Callahan and Patrick run a very professional and fun business, expertly and safely guiding each person through... More
