If you happen to be going to Wimberley, maybe for their monthly market days, then plan some extra time to stop here. The glass works they have are so beautiful. And it would also be worth your while to watch and see how they make them. It is something for all ages to see

These local artisans do beautiful work. It's definitely worth a stop if you are headed in or out of Wimberly. If you are lucky, you'll be there as they are doing a glass blowing demonstration. During the summer it's hotter than ...., but really interesting!

It is spell binding to see simple sand turned into beautiful and functional elements of our society. Watch them work, buy what you wish and order custom glass products if you wish. Easy parking. Friendly staff anxious to show you what you can do with glass.

I haven't been to a glass-blowing factory since the Murano factory in Italy, but this demonstration was very informative and interesting. The showroom is large and the products are varied, so don't miss it! And take a few minutes to sit outside in the shade an appreciate the outside artwork.

Great educational demonstration, but very hot in the studio. The pieces for sale are exquisite and mostly quite expensive.

Been driving by this place for quite awhile and decided to stop in. What an incredible display of hand blown glass in a variety of shapes sizes and function. Very gracious and informed staff. If you are looking for the unique...this is the place. Their custom capabilities are endless.

I highly recommend booking demonstration and then add an extra 20 minutes to look at all the beautiful glass. You need to call ahead to book the demonstration. They do not teach glass blowing.
