The Glassworks building as a whole:


Glassworks is a multi-use facility located at the corner of West Market and Ninth Street that is dedicated to the art of glass featuring two working glass studios with galleries, daily tours of the glass studios, along with commercial spaces, apartments, overnight lodging, and a physical fitness center. Glassworks opened its doors in 2001 as it was brought to life by developer Bill Weyland of City Properties Group. He sought to convert the old Snead Manufacturing building into a new multi-use facility that included a glass center, commercial real estate, and residential living; making it a place for visitors and residents 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The building has evolved since its reopening with continual improvements; unfortunately, the decision was made in 2012 to close the rooftop indefinitely. While this event space is no longer an option, the creation and redivision of space allowed The Foundry at Glassworks to create three different event space to accommodate the needs’ of clients.


Glassworks is definitely one hot attraction. It is the only facility of its kind in the country, bringing together an array of glass artists and galleries in one location and providing visitors with a rich portrayal of the magic, mystery, and beauty of glass. Tour the flameworking and glassblowing studios while learning about a variety of artistic glass working techniques through the demonstrating local, talented artists. Watch Glassblowers pull molten glass from a 2200 degree furnace and transform it into beautiful works of art. See flameworkers use glass rods and a propane torch to transform simple forms to delicate and stunning works of art. More information on the glass artisans can be found at
