Review of Twin Glass Studios

PhotobucketPhotobucketEvery year my family goes to a glass studio to blow our own Christmas ornaments. We've been to Glassworks and Flame Run, but this year there are some new options to choose from. We decided to check out Twin Glass Studios in Norton Commons, and I am so glad we did. And, this isn't something that's just for the holidays, they have demonstrations and classes year-round.

Twin Glass Studios is owned by Susie Slabaugh Hencye. She used to own Flame Run, but she wanted a cozier and more family-friendly atmosphere for her hot shop. What she designed is a small shop with a kid-friendly room that looks into the hot shop through large windows. There is a table with coloring pages, toys, books, and a television complete with a Playstation to entertain the kiddos. We were there for almost two hours crafting unique Christmas ornaments and decorations and my kids almost never got tired of watching the activity in the hot shop.

PhotobucketPhotobucketIn years past, we've always done the simple round glass ornaments. I chose Twin Glass Studio this year because they offer different types of ornaments, as well as Christmas Trees and Snowmen. My oldest son made a beautiful Christmas Tree decoration and my youngest enthusiastically made a SNOWMAN! We all really enjoyed the process, and the artists were very patient and welcoming of my rambunctious little ones. Susie has twin seven year old girls, so she was well-equipped for energetic kids.

PhotobucketThe regular ornaments cost $40 each and take about twenty minutes. The Christmas Tree and Snowman are $60 and take just over half an hour. The experience at Twin Glass Studio was very enjoyable-they really took their time explaining the process and collaborating with us on designs. I made the most high-maintenance ornament I've ever made, and I hung it on my tree this year with pride! Keep this place in mind for next year or check out their events throughout the year, it always a good time to make something beautiful for yourself or as a gift. Call (502)963-1647 for an appointment. Twin Glass Studios is located at 9409 Norton Commons Blvd., Ste 101 in Prospect.

I can relate with your experience because my family and I frequently visit glass studios for glass splashback. We will try to visit Twin Glass Studios because it seems like you guys had fun.
