Glassblowing Demonstration

    What to Expect
    When arriving at our address 715 S. Alamo, you will notice an entrance to a parking lot on the right hand side. You may park in this parking lot free of charge. Once inside, you will notice our blue building in the back of the lot. You do not need to arrive early, as you will have time afterwards to browse the gallery with items for sale. The demonstration starts at 10:15 am inside our air-conditioned gallery with a brief history of our company and details about what we create. After that, we will escort you to the hot shop where we will stay with you to narrate the glass blowing demonstration. During this time you will see a piece being made from start to finish, get an insiders perspective of the creation, and have the ability ask questions. The demonstration will last between 35-45 minutes. After that you are free to browse our gallery and purchase items.

    It was an incredible experience to watch the highly talented craftsman blow a large bowl. It was a group event that benefited cystic fibrosis called Blow for a Cure. It included a delicious lunch and demonstration and then we were each allowed to choose either...More

    We were just walking by and we got to see a glass blowing demonstration that was about to start. Afterwards staff were so welcoming and gave our 6 year old daughter extra attention. It was such a great spontaneous find. I highly recommend.More

    Beautiful gallery space filled with lots of stunning blown glass. Creative use of textures and minerals. Three generations of Garcia women running this hot shop. They are set up for viewing and touring the glass blowing area. Very impressive!
