  • This was a fantastic experience. My wife and younger daughter made pumpkins while me and my older daughter made paperweights. When they say "hands on" they mean it. Rodi was a great teacher. My daughters of ages 10 and 13 were capable to performing the activities. We will be back for sure.
  • Stopped here on our way to RIT for a college tour. She was very accommodating. Great staff with much patience. Had a great time with the team of very talented artisans. Can't wait to get my paperweight.
  • The patient one-on-one attention that each customer receives makes the experience extra-special. If you want to have a great, unforgettable glass-blowing experience, this is the place to go! The small staff bends over backwards to meet the needs of everyone, even when you arrive as a large group. Set aside enough time to truly enjoy and learn from the experience! You will be amazed by your final product!
  • Friendly people, a very good alternative to blow glass if CMOG is booked or you prefer to pay less
  • What an amazing experience! The staff here is wonderful and extremely knowledgable and the owner is very sweet and accommodating! This is a great affordable activity that can fit into a schedule of hiking or other local adventures without taking your whole day. Be sure to call ahead!
