We took our out-of-town guests to Flame Run to have the experience of making their own wine glasses. A talented little pink-haired artist and her assistant guided them through the process of blowing the molten glass into shape. Actually the artist did all the work, but they got to choose the color and blow through a long tube at the... More

A place you don't see everyday. We love glass pieces and had to see it. Artwork was spectacular and we had a great demonstration of glass blowing. Learned some things.

Made a short stop at the Flame Run Glass studio. They had demonstrations and articles for sale. Was lot able to spend but about 30 minutes at the studio, but think it would be well worth your time to visit especially if you have never seen a glass blowing demonstration before. Many pieces available for purchase.

Recommended by our tour guide, the Flame Run Glass Studio was a bit of a hidden gem for us as our focus was primarily on the bourbon! They have a great sitting area so you can watch the artisans work on their pieces. The studio is a short walk from the Frazier & Slugger Museum and definitely worth the trip!

You get to pick from a small variety of objects to create, don't worry you don't actually create it alone! Pick the item you wish to have as a keepsake, the colors, and make a reservation! You don't need to make a reservation, but keep in mind that it is better for everyone if you do! We had the privilege... More

We had a great time blowing glass today. Each of us choose our own project. It was kind of pricey and technically you just get to pick the colors and blow, but you're certainly in the middle of the creative process. And the finished product is very much "yours.". There's a real sense of, "I made that happen!". The staff... More

This was by far the best part of the trip. Mark was an excellent teacher and we had so much fun. Definitely worth the price.

I went first thing in the morning and a good walking distance from the hotel. No one in the gallery and got to watch several glass items being made in the studio. If you like glass art, visit this studio and gallery.

When my husband was in Louisville for business he sent me out to Flame Run to have fun. I made a vase with the help of my professional glass artist John and then I also got to make a pumpkin. I loved this unique experience. I made my items on Monday, January 30th and I received them on Saturday, February... More

I've been to Flame Run twice, each time around the Christmas holiday to create a one of a kind, personally crated ornament.
