    I am an activity director and our residents are interested in watching glassblowers in action. I’ve been there personally years ago and remember a small seating area. Is there a time during the day when a small group of residents can come and watch the glassblowers?

    1. Shelley Davis,
      We still have bleachers available for watching the glassblowers work. We cannot grantee any particular times unless you book a Demonstration. I have forward your contact information to our events team leader she should be reaching out soon. If you have any further questions please call the gallery 817.251.1668, Kelsey will be able to assist you with setting up your event.
