You've got to see it to believe it!

Owning a piece of Fenton Art Glass is a delight, but watching it made is an outright thrill! Our "FREE" guided factory tour offered on weekdays is up close and personal. Knowledgeable and friendly guides take you right to the action where skilled glassworkers use the tools and techniques of centuries ago to create beautiful art glass right before your eyes! You'll see glassblowing and pressing operations as well as Fenton's signature skills − basket handling and "ringing!"
