Virtu Sandblasting Experience

Design Your Own Glass or Glass Mug

Reservations & Questions:

Activities & Events
Experience the art of sandblasting at the new Virtu “Made by You” Studio located at The Greenbrier Art Colony Shops.  In this introduction to sandblasting the Virtu staff will guide you through this simple design process by demonstrating how to strategically place stickers and tape on the surface of your glass to create your own 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, giving the glass a frosted appearance.  Finally, the sticker and tape designs are washed off revealing your personal clear design outlined by a frosted overlay.  Your glass creating is ready to take home with you the same day!

This fun and creative introduction to sandblasting is kid friendly and offered for individuals, groups, or friends and families. 

Types of glasses available for this experience are tumbler, stemless wine glass, pint glass or glass mug.
