If you’re questioning it... DO IT! This is a one of a kind experience that requires a lot of tools and skills, so take advantage of this opportunity. The hosts were informative and guided you through the entire process one-on-one. It was was an unforgettable experience. Make sure you ask for some stories because they truly have a lot to share!

What an amazing experience! I received this as a birthday present from my better half, and it was one of the best presents ever. We were welcomed by Heather, who is warm and wonderful. She showed us in, had us sign paperwork, and gave us the general rundown. Aaron, her husband, is the artist of the studio. He is passionate, animated, and fun as hell. He was very willing to show us his toys, explains everything thoroughly, and is very safety conscious. Aaron helped us create our glass pieces, explaining each step, and allowed us to be as active as we could in the process. He also was open about the secrets of glass blowing and the history. Take this class, you definitely will not regret it! You two showed us a wonderful time! Thank you sooooo much!

A wonderful, unique, small group workshop! You choose the glass object you’d like to make, the colors to use, and - with expert help - you make it. The other participants watch and encourage... In the end, you bring home the artful glass object you created. Highly recommended. Flawless experience.

Great experience! This is a must do if you are in the neighborhood! Just know that the glass has to cool so either you go back later to pick it up or have it shipped to you.

Once I had come upon this class and the fact that it was available I jumped on it! I felt this is something you don’t get to go do everyday. My boyfriend always said how cool it would be to do glass blowing so I surprised him with this experience! I definitely suggest trying this class you won’t regret it! Thank you to Heather for giving us this experience and opening up your art studio for all to share!
