Fun afternoon

My wife and two daughters did glass projects here and raved about how fun and nice the people were. They picked two incense burners and earrings and pendant to make.

Visited the Glass Palate while in Charlottesville for the weekend and SO glad we did! There are LOTS of options available in a wide variety of price points and the staff are very helpful. A nice feature is that the item is priced based on size...not on the amount of glass you add to it so you can really get... More

Perfect for a hot day when its too miserable to be outside. Stopped here in between the winery tours. This was so much fun and artistic, but easy for anyone to do. Staff was very helpful and friendly.

I love do crafty things and this was my favorite part of our trip. The ladies went above and beyond to accommodate us and they could not have been more friendly and helpful. Highly recommend!

We had a nice time with the people at this place. The ability to let your creations rum wild is the part that makes this worth while.

After eating lunch we stopped in on a Thursday (which is their shipping day) to see about creating some wonderful art pieces with a 7 year old and a 13 year old! Maria was very accommodating!!! She allowed us to stay and... More

I went with my 2 teenage girls to kill some time after a UVA college tour. We had never done any art of this type and really didn't know what to expect. It was so unique, and so much fun. The owners were very friendly and helpful. My artsy daughter dove right in and made a beautiful mosaic. My other... More
