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 Experience

The experience was fun. I love keeping the items we made in the class. It was very educational but laid back. We learned a lot and it is something we will probably do in the future.

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!!!
