A charming open door artists' studio that includes a craft beer bar. They encourage you to hang out and watch the artists create. Best time to catch the artists is after lunch. Lots of beautiful creations for sale.

Lexington Glassworks was a full working glass shop. We viewed the glass making process and saw the end results. If you are interested in seeing the process, Lexington Glassworks is the place for you. Also, lots of glass for sale at various prices.
