  • Every 20 minutes they have a new demo they walk you through the whole process. They have benches around the work area to sit and watch. 
  • Super cool to watch the demos being done. Our son loved it. The guys working there were clearly bored, BUT it was cool.

  • Really awesome spot to chill out at for a while. You just walk in, get greeted by the beautiful attendants and watch the glass makers do their magic.They explain what they're doing and involve the audience, so it's pretty cool. Oh and you can even have a drink while you're there! Showroom is really nice too, pieces are out for display and for sale. VHD
  • Awesome stop on our trip through Asheville. Whole family enjoyed watching Geoff and Billy create a beautiful one of a kind piece. They explained each step as they did it. Very friendly and beautiful showroom.
  • Interesting place. They have a bar and you can sit and watch them make handmade glass objects. Very interesting pieces of glass.
  • Such cool stuff. Unfortunately we were there during their lunch so we didn't get to see them working with the glass. Will definitely be stopping back in to watch.
  • Was thrilled to find Lexington Glassworks on my last trip to Ashville. Such a neat gallery to have a beer and witness skilled glassblowers making beautiful pieces of art.
