My husband and I spent about 5 hours here - that's in beer time since he had 5 beers. I made a a mosaic picture frame and a fused glass garden stake. The hubby helped cut glass but I did most of the creating. He's not into being creative but actually enjoyed watching, helping, and drinking. Ie was good together... More

Had a small group with some time on our hands this past weekend. Stopped at Hands On Art Studio with no idea what we wanted to try. After we figured out what we wanted to do, we went at it. Had a great time and our fused glass projects turned out better than we imagined. Looking forward to next time... More

So much fun! Went to the adults-only friday night during a weekend in the area. The staff were super friendly and informative. Unfortunetely the metal shop was closed, but we ended up in the mosaic area which was pretty darn fun! Price-wise, this is fairly expensive activity if you want to do it right - to do mosaics the price... More

We learned about this place from a brochure, so we checked it out. We had the best time with our two kids and created two beautiful fused glass art pieces that hold great memories of our Door County trip. Really fun!

We checked this place out on a whim during our trip last year. What a fun afternoon! Having never been a crafty or artsy person, I imagined that I'd become super artistic and make wonderful gifts for family and friends. Instead, I pretty much threw a temper tantrum in the middle of bowls of broken glass because I couldnt figure... More

My son and I make this our must do on our Door County Vacation. He paints a plate to remember our visit for the year and I just get creative. The best part is all the different types of projects you can do to include painting pottery, jewelry making, metal works, fused glass, and mosaics. Keep in mind that some... More

Go with ideas and spend the whole day...or night on Friday adult only time. Loads of choices we like the welding barn and glass studios best. The kid camps are great fun for older children too!

I'm not an artsy type of person, but this place is good for just about anyone. I made a sun-catcher in the glass studio. There were lots of options there. I glazed a few pieces in the ceramics building. I could have made many more pieces. My husband made a "creature"- at least that's what we're calling it- in the... More

I've been to Hands On several times. My biggest issue is that the staff is very hands off. Though I've visited the site three times, I've only ever made something once ... due to lack of support by staff. Once you have somebody that is able to help you, they are very kind and very helpful ... however, the trick... More

My husband broke my fused glass garden stick that I created two years ago. I returned with the broken pieces a couple of weeks ago, and Karon re-fused it for free...saving our marriage! Seriously, this place is just charming...allowing people like me to experiment with all sorts of crafts and art, inspiring us with completed work for sale, and great... More
