Burnt Glassworks

Have you ever wanted to try glass blowing but weren’t sure where to begin, or even how? Burnt Glassworks is the perfect place to fulfill that dream! They have plenty of different workshops to choose from in which you can make your own glass creations.

From wine glasses and mugs to starfish paperweights, you can make just about anything you can imagine. Also, they tend to have seasonal workshops – during the fall you can create pumpkins and get in the holiday spirit by making ornaments at Christmas time!

The cool thing about this opportunity is that it is completely hands-on! With the help of the guys at Burnt Glassworks, you will be using all the tools and techniques to create your own blown glass piece. Don’t be nervous, though, everyone at Burnt Glassworks is extremely kind and helpful. If you’d love a cool beer while handling all that hot glass, they also offer pop up shops at King Maker Brewing.

Wick: A Candle Bar

At Wick: a Candle Bar you are able to create the candle of your dreams! The process begins at their scent wall – they have over 90 scents for you to choose from! Once you’ve smelled all the samples and narrowed down your favorite scents, you are able to pick your candle jar! After you’ve made all the tough decisions, it’s time to make your candle!

The employees at Wick are extremely helpful, and they will help you narrow down your favorite scents to create the best combination. After you mix together your scents and wax, your candle must rest for 90 minutes so the wax can harden. This is the perfect workshop for a fun date night or a girls day out!
