Wimberley Glassworks is located in the heart of the scenic Texas Hill Country. Just like the glasswork found at WGW, a visit to the gallery is unique, offering guests an entertaining learning experience. Visitors can observe the beautiful craftsmenship of glassblowing and then shop in the gallery for their very own piece of hand blown art glass.

Our Free Glassblowing Demonstrations show the process of crafting molten glass into exceptional art. You'll see artists use a variety of materials to create the brilliantly colored designs displayed in the gallery.

Tim was born in Saskatchewan, Canada. He studied ceramics, sculpture and glass at Alfred University in New York. He holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts with a concentration in glass art from Tyler's School of Art at Temple University located in Pennsylvania.

In 1991, Tim came to Texas on vacation and fell in love with the Texas Hill Country. Within a year of his visit, he purchased property and opened Wimberley Glassworks just south of the village of Wimberley TX. Tim is the sole owner and employs three other full time glass blowers.

In 2006, WGW moved to a new and larger location. What started as a small shop with a few lawn chairs for visitors to view glassblowing has grown into an air-conditioned shop with seating for 90 people. Tim has built WGW into the Southwest's premier art glass and custom lighting studio. Wimberley Glassworks collections and lighting can be seen in homes worldwide.
