Did You Know About Wimberley Glass Works?

Did you know Wimberley Glass Works?

Ever since hearing about it, I have been wanting to go see the demonstration of glass blowing at the Glassworks in Wimberley TX. Today I was able to do so! There were two young college aged guys today working on some "spikey things" for a chandelier similar to the one in the Glassworks entryway.(Seriously, that is the official term, that's what the glass blowers called them!) They had to make 32 of the spikey things. It was very interesting to watch the free demonstration and they were good about talking about what they were doing and showing us the glass and asking if we had any questions. If you are ever in the San Marcos/Wimberley area, be sure to take in a free glass blowing demonstration at Wimberley Glassworks.
