I cannot recommend this enough. I have always loved stained glass but have never thought about learning the process. This is such a unique, valuable experience. I really enjoyed this experience and am now wanting to get into stained glass myself! The hosts are so kind, very knowledgeable, and their English is fantastic!! This is a MUST DO. Unfortunately, I booked this last minute so I was not able to help them out. Due to trade embargoes and regulations it is very difficult for them to obtain certain materials. If you feel so inclined, and have the space and time, reach out to them and see if there are materials you can help them with. They are SO deserving! Can not recommend enough. One of the highlights of my trip, hands down.

This experience was amazing - one of the best parts of our trip to Havana! Adriana was a great teacher and also chatted with us about her life in Cuba and answered so many questions for us! She made us feel absolutely at home in her studio and even gave us a pastry from a local vendor. The studio is bright and colorful and their work is gorgeous! Would highly recommend this experience!

Making stain glass was so much fun! It was simple and set out for us in a step by step process. Definitely made me want to explore the art further!

Once we found the place, everything was laid out for us. They explained the tools and its’ purpose. The glass was already cut but the crafting of the metal to hold the glass in place was unique. We got to weld the pieces in place for the finishing touch. What a fun and different experience. I will treasure the final product forever.
