I love the walk-in workshops that they have at Glassworks. They have projects to fit any budget and ability. This can be fun for a girls day out or as a project to do with children or grandchildren.

My husband and I got to learn how to make a glass kiss with Mark today. It was a fun and informational experience. Mark was great to work with and made the whole experience one of the high points of our trip to Louisville!
