Four of us went in for a private glass blowing lesson. We learned about the furnaces and got to shape and blow glass. The staff was great. The only issue was they were out of the color I wanted to use.

After being asked to come closer to watch the creation of a vase we were ordered "behind the line." Please decide. We did. We decided to walk without buying a thing. A third worker in the shop was on a computer or the phone and never looked our way. We were the only visitors in the shop at the time... More

My in-laws joined my husband and I at Central Glass Works for a private glassblowing class. We got to choose between making ornaments or suck in bowls. Each of us got to choose two projects which I thought was very generous for what I paid. The three male employees were hands on, knowledgeable and quite funny. We chose our own... More

My wife and in laws took a glass blowing/making class, it was really fun and educational. Kevin and his staff do a fantastic job keeping you from goofing up while still letting you do it. If you are in or near the area I would say this experience is a must do. Only a little more than hour from Seattle.... More
