100% recommend!! A fabulous way to spend an hour and a half in Venice and then leave with a glass treasure that you made yourself! Massimiliano is a very skilled artisan and he was incredibly helpful walking us through each step to make sure we felt comfortable while working with the glass. It truly gives you a new appreciation for the skilled craftsmanship it takes to make glass!

It was a great experience to look over the shoulder of a local glass artisan and also to be able to make something on our own. Massimiliano told us about the glass making and the history behind it. We enjoyed it a lot.

An unforgettable experience with a perfect memento

Honestly, I didn't realize just how much we would be able to work with the glass, but designing and making our own pendants was really something we'll treasure forever. Also, being surrounded by the instructor's artwork makes you understand just how much skill and artistry goes into this work. Don't forget to take pictures of you and others working at the bench like I did, though. Would definitely consider taking this workshop again.

My friend and I both really enjoyed our glass artwork making experience. Massimiliano is very talented and made it all look easy. He took time to explain some of the history behind glass making in Venice and Murano. He was patient with us and we thought he did a good job of demonstrating our task, letting us practice and then giving us help when we needed it. Thanks Massimiliano!

Marvelous glass making class

My young adult daughter and I had a great time making a pendant with the help of the artisan. He was very good at explaining everything and performing the task first so we could see how we should be doing it. He guided us as we made our pendants making sure we were doing everything correctly. He was very patient. I would highly recommend this class.

Fun activity with a glass artist
Anne_W
, Sep 2021
We had a great time! We got a brief introduction into the history of glass making first which was interesting and he then demonstrated the technique until it was our turn. I am far from being an artistic person and you could tell ;-) I was not very good at it but he helped all the way and was even able to correct my misshapen blob. Then my (adult) son had a go and was much better, I was quite impressed. We both had a lot of fun and something nice to take home and it made me appreciate glass artwork even more. We both recommend this experience!
