  • The store has some really nice glass pieces inside. You can also make something yourself along with a staff member. Definitely fun!  more »
  • Great concept and was alot of fun to see the glass blowing right in front of us. Would recommend taking a peak.  more »
  • We were given a "glass blowing experience" for a gift and went with no expectations. It was fun with good instructions and, given the obvious risks of having novices in close proximity with molten sil...  more »

  • My wife and I both had the chance to make drinking glasses, and it was a brilliant experience! They clearly explained each of the steps and it was fascinating to see the pieces take shape. Can't wait to use our unique glasses!
  • So many beautiful pieces being sold there and if you take a walk in class, you end up with a beautiful piece that you made yourself. I never ever write reviews but: Despite all that, I'm giving it 2 stars because my husband and my friend and I think the prices were a little much. Every little thing added up. I made a bubble which was shaped into a vase. I had to pay extra for each color (kind of understandable but not for $7.50 per color), pay for each twist of color (another $7.50), and then I had to pay for the flattening of the vase bottom ($10! For just taking a wood paddle and putting up against the hot glass). The bubble sizes are small, large, and XL. My friend chose a small and I chose a large upon the suggestion of the glass blower so my design would show better. HERE'S WHAT IRKED ME ENOUGH TO WANT TO GIVE A ONE STAR REVIEW: my large bubble turned out to be $68 PLUS tax. My friend's small bubble was $48 plus tax. When picking up the pieces, my friend's small vase and my large vase were the same size. So I just paid like $30 (if you include the tax) extra for the same size piece. Very very upset about the prices. Although the pieces did turn out beautifully....not worth the money.
  • Walked into Hot Sand to witness them finishing up a vase to which they then added two turtle doves to it. It was a beautiful piece!
  • Got my glass back and my niece and nephew loved making theirs and now we all have glasses from a great experience!
  • While we did not purchase anything, getting to see them blow glass right in front of you is mesmerizing. Just wish their prices were a bit more affordable.
