We recently wrote a post about all the best things to do in downtown Wimberley, which included visiting the marvelous Wimberley Glassworks. Wimberley is one of our favorite Texas Hill Country towns to explore, not just because it’s nearby (though that doesn’t hurt!) but because it’s filled with an overabundance of authentic Texas charm. It’s also a very art-forward destination, as seen at top-rated businesses like Wimberley Glassworks.
Whether you’re in the market for custom-made glass pieces ranging from light fixtures to vases and other decorative elements in between, or you want to enjoy watching demonstrations of this unique art form, Wimberley Glassworks is a great place to visit while exploring Wimberley and the broader Texas Hill Country. Wimberley Glassworks is less than 10 minutes by car from our Hill County Bed and Breakfast, which makes us a fantastic home base during your getaway.
With a range of accommodations to choose from, outstanding Texas hospitality, and plenty of high-end amenities, there’s no better place to stay in Hill country than our Wimberley, Texas Bed and Breakfast. Book your room today!
An Afternoon at Wimberley Glassworks in Texas
Whether you’re an avid art enthusiast or are in the market for a one-of-a-kind gift this holiday season, you can’t go wrong with a visit to Wimberley Glassworks. Wimberley Glassworks is located between downtown Wimberley and San Marcos, approximately a 10 minutes drive from our Hill Country Bed and Breakfast.
The most popular thing to do at Wimberley Glassworks is to attend one of their live glassblowing demonstrations, which are offered Thursdays through Sundays from 10:30 – 3:00 pm. These demonstrations take place throughout the day, so you don’t have to worry about scheduling a time to visit. It’s free to watch glassblowing demonstrations at Wimberley Glassworks, but they can also arrange group or private demonstrations for a small fee.
Wimberley Glassworks also offers a covered Make Your Own Ornament class each holiday season. These spectacular classes start on Black Friday and will continue on weekends through December. They are popular, though, so you’ll want to book as early as possible. This hands-on experience is exceptional and allows you to choose your own custom colors and shape the piece – with the help of glassblowing experts – so that the product is exactly as you want.
There’s also a gallery and exhibit space onsite at Wimberley Glassworks, which allows you to see the range of beautiful pieces made by this company. Talk about a fantastic place to pick up a unique gift item! Their gallery is open every Wednesday – Sunday, from 10 am – 5 pm. While you’re there, don’t miss their outdoor installation, the Glass Menagerie, which has been grown and created by the artistic minds at Wimberley Glassworks.
