1. Great studio for blown glass. In the fall you can take a class to make your own pumpkin. The instruction class is short (1/2 hour) but a lot of fun and very interesting and unique experience. Frances M. Longbeach, CA 10/6/13

2. Art pieces, jewelry, home goods - mostly from blown glass. Or take a lesson one-on-one and blow your own piece. There is also an event space you can rent for up to 100 people in back. The glass pumpkins are beautiful. 09.16.13 Brian D. St Petersburg, FL

3. This place was really neat. It was in the old Langley Firehouse. Half of the main space is set up as a storefront, while the other is where the actual firing of the glass takes place. My friends and I had just had a lunch at the Braeburn Restaurant (which was great!), and we had admired the cool hand blown glasses that they used for waters. We were thrilled to realize that this was where they made them!

It was really fun to watch the artisans actually making a pitcher in front of us, and we each ended up buying a glass or two (or a set of 8, in one case!). They also will ship them for a pretty nominal fee, and then you don't end up having to pay sales tax. The colors were unique, and I really love the two that I bought. They were also sturdy enough that I felt totally comfortable putting them in my suitcase just wrapped in a piece of bubble wrap--they made it home safely. There were lots of other glass objects for purchase--vases, flowers, jewelry, ornaments, bowls. It would make for a really unique gift, especially as a reminder of Whidbey.

They advertised classes where you could make your own glass, bowl, ornament, etc.--I think all were priced at $65. It seems like it would be really fun! Meredith C. Washington D.C. 02.05.14
