A group tour is comfortable for a group of 5-20 people, but more can be accommodated. This tour takes you through the gallery, the Flame Shop, the Warm Shop, and the Hot Shop (studios that focus on torchworking, kiln-firing, and glassblowing, respectively), and the Sculpture Garden. Your group will be shown the tools utilized in each studio and examples of the kind of glass art pieces produced in these shops.
