Activities & Events
Receive an education in the art of sandblasting at the new Virtu “Made by You” Studio located at The Greenbrier Art Colony Shops. During this introduction to sandblasting, the Virtu staff will guide guests through this simple design process by demonstrating how to strategically place stickers and tape on the surface of a glass to create a unique, personal design. Once your design is attached to the glass, the process is completed by blasting the surface of the glass with a fine sand, propelled by compressed air. The process gives the glass a beautiful, frosted appearance. Finally, the sticker and tape designs are washed off, revealing the guest's custom design outlined by a frosted overlay. The glass creation is ready to take home as a lasting keepsake the same day!
This creative introduction to sandblasting is perfect for children of all ages and is offered for individuals or groups. Tumblers, stemless wine glass, pint glass or glass mugs are all available for your creation.
