We had the opportunity to watch several bowls being made. The process was great to watch. The totem project was also interesting to watch develop. There is a coffee shop next door and it makes for a great visit.

Watched these peoples work on the glass ornaments they were making. They took the time to respond to questions, I did not have much to say but others did. They got a very interesting shop, and I enjoyed the place.
