 Instructor was the best! Wasn't sure what to expect but it was better than I thought. Very happy to have been involved in every step of the process. Learned a lot and had fun while doing it. We made 4 pieces and not just all paperweights. Got to see other artists creating works of art while there also. Recommend this to everyone!

 My husband and I had an awesome experience at the Philadelphia Glass Blowing Class. Our instructor was Nikolaj and he was very informative and instructed us on safety procedures. With his guidance we were able to make 5 pieces - all unique and which we will treasure and show off to our friends & family. What a great Birthday gift from our daughter in Florida!!!

Fantastic Time! Highly Recommended 

5 stars

 My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time learning the art of glass blowing. It was a perfect date to have during the day, and we each made three items, all of which came out beautifully! Our instructor was very helpful and informative. It was nice not to be spoken down to because neither of us had ever tried glass blowing before. Our instructor, Nikolaj, went beyond basic techniques, and really made the experience special. We cannot wait to go back for another visit.

Glass Blowing was Amazing 

5 stars

 Everyone was great especially our teacher, Penny. This was a present from me for our fifth anniversary. What an experience!! We are hooked to glass blowing. Everyone was completely cool and gave detailed instructions so you do not hurt or injure yourself or others. Penny was patient and attentive an awesome teacher all around. She really made our experience great. We even got to see her personal work, jewelery made of glass. We look forward to doing this again and again!!!

Question: I'm interested in purchasing this for my mother's 60th birthday, she has never attempted glass blowing. My only concern is that the blowing will be a bit much, I have no experience with glass blowing either so I would like to know what she can expect so I can judge if this will be appropriate for her.
