“Fun to watch the glass blowing demonstrations”

The glass blowing demonstrations are amazing! This is a must see for anyone visiting Wimberley. The demonstrations are free and there is a gallery where glass pieces can be purchased.

“Very cool! ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014 via mobile

Stopped in on our drive to visit the town of Wimberley and ended up hanging out here for over an hour. Not only did we see several breathtaking pieces of glass artwork, we were fortunate to see a demonstration of glass blowing by Tim deJong himself. He was very personable and engaging. Call ahead for the demonstration times, but don't skip this stop!

“Demonstration Well Worth A Visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013

This is a small glass works between San Marcos and Wimberley. They schedule hourly glass blowing demonstrations in their shop, which has a few rows of comfortable, stadium-style seating, but is otherwise very open to the shop, the heat, etc. We found the demonstration to be amazing, and the end products produced their to be beautiful works of glass art. However, nearly everything in the shop was very expensive and beyond most people's pocketbook. Still, the glass works and the demonstration is worth a stop, as all of that is free. Suggest visitors call ahead to find out when demonstration events are scheduled that particular day.

“Fascinating to watch!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

Wimberley is a quiet little town with much to offer. One of the interesting things to do there is to visit the Wimberley Glass Works. You can watch as they demonstrate and tell about making glass. There is also a showroom with pieces to purchase. They make lamps, bowls, vases, jewelery and decorative items. It is always on our list of places to go when we go to Wimberley!

“Glass Works of Art”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

We stopped by here on our way back home to San Antonio. The art is super expensive, so we didn't buy anything. Wish they had some small items to purchase for $5-20, just so we had something to bring home from the experience. The demonstration was interesting, but it was super hot in there. Maybe going in the winter would be better.
