This was the most amazing experience ever. I was in town for the weekend and my friends have been here before and highly recommended it. When you arrive you get to select your project that you want to make and the design and colors. The staff is very friendly and takes lots of time with you to make sure to capture what you want to make.
Once you have your colors selected and prepped on the tray, you head into the glass blowing room. Our instructor was Jake. Jake did a fantastic job explaining the process and letting you do as much as you were willing to do. There are a few steps that they have to do like getting the glass out of the furnace and finishing the edges.
It is amazing to see the beautiful piece take shape right in front of you. I think that this could be very addictive.
If you are from out of town they will ship your piece to you for a very reasonable price. Be sure to make your reservation early because it is a very popular activity.
