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

A place you don't see everyday. We love glass pieces and had to see it. Artwork was spectacular and we had a great demonstration of glass blowing. Learned some things.
