When you first walk up to the building you can see the actual forge where they make all the glass items you see in the gift shop area. When I was there I got the opportunity to see the owners craft a adorable bee.

Many times, we have stopped by and watched the art, and visited the shop. Usually, you will see the owner's dog laying quietly nearby. Nice little studio in Wakefield. Take a look, purchase something and keep his art alive.

The artisans work on the premises & sometimes offer glassblowing classes to the public. I made an ornament; it was SO interesting & fun. There are stunning glassworks for sale from bowls, glasses, ornaments & extremely unique decorations!

This is a tiny, charming glass shop in downtown Wakefield. The items they make here are amazingly beautiful. They also offer some smaller charming items for the holidays. The have demonstrations and offer glass blowing classes. Nice addition to a downtown area!

Had a fun time blowing glass with Eben and Jen. Try a class, they make it seem easy. Good for kids too, though they need to be able to pay attention, since there are hot pipes all around.

Beautiful and original glass creations, both purely decorative (hanging balls) or useful: vases, bowls, glasses, paper weights.

No. It is an artisan production and sales business. Kids might be interested in glassblowing if artisans are at work, so call first. Keep ia close eye on them in sales area.
