What We Do

Functional, Local Art by Makers Who Are Rooted in Creativity

  • Our new glassblowing hot shop/studio is the only one in Fredericksburg, TX open to the public. If you love watching "Blown Away" on Netflix, you'll love feeling the heat and watching our resident glassblower and visiting artists create functional art... vases, glasses, garden orbs, ornaments... that you can purchase to take home and remember your special time in the Texas Hill Country. In 2023, we will start offering "glassblowing experiences" to make a spring flower, fall pumpkin, or Christmas ornament. Sign up on our newsletter so you're the first to know when these experiences become available.

  • At the Purple Shack Makers Gallery we sell a curated collection of functional, wearable, and decorative, one-of-a-kind art made by several talented artisans living in the Texas Hill Country and beyond. Your purchases support local artisans and help us restore this 22-acre ranch to improve habitat for birds, butterflies, bats and other wildlife.

  • Experience the peace available at the Enchanted Fredericksburg Ranch when you book our 39-foot fifth wheel on Airbnb. We also Harvest Host members two boondocking sites.

  • This ranch is a work in progress. Come back often to see new art and artisans and watch as we transform the landscape with beautiful Texas native wildflowers, grasses, shrubs and trees. 

  • Sign up to receive our newsletter and follow us on social media to go behind-the-scenes and get the latest updates.
