I went for a motorcycle ride with my wife yesterday and we ended up driving through Alexandria. We stopped for a quick stretch and noticed a glass blowing studio set up in the Priests Mill.
Naturally we went inside when it said the artist is in studio. We met Dean and Ben who gave us a quick glass blowing 101 lesson as we watch a glass take shape. It’s an amazing process to watch.
The artists are there for the next three weeks and I encourage you to go and check them out. It’s a beautiful drive out there and the studio will not disappoint.
If you get the bug while you’re there they do offer lessons to budding artist. The boom breakfast will make a trip out there soon and test our creative side as the offer to show us more in depth the art of glass blowing. We just need clearance from our legal department (sarcasm).
Go check it out in the old Priests Mill in downtown Alexandria, you’ll be glad you did!
