Hello. Besides being a host and offering an apartment for your stays in Venice, I am also a craftsman of Murano Glass. For many years I have had and managed commercial activities related to the Murano Glass, subsequently changed only to the processing of glass as a craftsman. My passion in working the famous Murano glass I would like to pass it on to you too, organizing workshops where you learn how to handle glass and melt it with fire in complete safety. Eventually the created objects will remain to you.

Fantastic experience! We highly recommend this workshop with Fabio. Fabio is a very enthusiastic host who shows great passion about the art of Murano glass. He gave us a lot of freedom to create our own "pieces of art" and presented a talented demonstration of small objects that he offered us at the end. Don't miss this great experience!

Great way to get to understand glass making and make your own unique mementos of the trip. Fabio was a great (and patient) instructor and made the experience laid back and lots of fun. Would definitely recommend if you’re in Venice!

Please be weary of scheduling this on your last day as you do need to pick up the work either many hours later or next day. Excellent experience! Very unique!

Fabio is a great teacher; patient, friendly and really welcoming. This experience is unique so definitely recommend it to anyone. On top of understanding Murano’s art, you come home with your little Murano glass object and you are working in a studio with the view on the canal and gondolas.
