Great time at the Glass Palette studio. Cannot get any better than creating your own piece of art. A short walk from downtown but worth it! Plenty ideas around the shop to help you start. Once you start your own project (with close supervision and help form owners), you can spend a few good hours and the result is looking... More

We visited this place on a whim based upon a review my wife found online and it was well worth it. It is a little difficult to find but don't let that discourage you. We walked in and were immediately greeted with a smile. The glass work on display is not only beautiful but was fascinating to this engineer as... More

My friend and I had so much fun at the Glass Palatte. The ladies were very helpful and gave you all the tools you needed and showed you how to use them. It was a great way to spend a couple of hours indoors and create your own masterpiece. Looking forward to going there again next year.

We were visiting from out of town and found this on Trip Advisor. It was great to do on a rainy day! We had the best time!!! Made some plates and bowls that will last forever. I also got to make a plate to display with an Iris. I can't wait to see how it turns out! Everyone was so... More

What a fantastic place! My mom and I stopped by this afternoon after reading about this studio on TripAdvisor. We had a wonderful time. Everyone was friendly, helpful and very patient. We appreciated their guidance, artistry and love of glass. We made memories to last our lifetime and can't wait to see our creations when they arrive in the mail.... More

I've completed two walk in projects and attended the stained glass course (which has led to me making more stained glass projects at home). I recommend this place to everyone I know! It's been great fun and a unique experience. The owners are very knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. It's amazing all the different fantastic things you can make here. And... More

Well, if you are looking to spend a few hours doing an art or craft project, this is an excellent studio, run by really nice folks who know what they are doing. They have extensive supplies and equipment, and are helpful and friendly.

The actual process was great! The prices are reasonable. The neighborhood looks a bit sketchy. Staff was great and helpful. Looking forward to our finished pieces arriving in the mail.

This studio is loads of fun. You can spend an afternoon creating a piece of glass art. In fact, you can spend more than an afternoon if you don't finish your piece. You pay for the project and play around with it until you are satisfied with what you have done. Except you really don't know what it will look... More

An interesting place to create items of glass. Our granddaughters had made us large salad bowls and my husband unfortunately broke his. We took it in and they kindly -- at no charge -- did whatever they do to fix it. Later he broke it beyond repair so the granddaughter and I went in and "built" a new bowl for... More
