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.

Very cool place! We ate next door at the Maple Street Biscuit Company and happened by seeing the glass blowing. We tried it too and it was super fun. The people inside make you feel like a pro. Will always remember this experience!

Thank you for the great review, we do let you do as much as we can safely. Correction, the oven is only a measly 2080 degrees. getting that close to 8000 degrees would definitely set you on fire immediately.

Very Cool...you can pick between ornaments or paperweights then pick colors. You will then help turn glass in oven then blow glass. They will ship to you of course at a charge. Doesn't take long at all...make sure to ask questions!

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
