  • Friendly and helpful staff. Once inside you can attend a small demonstration of a glazier. Don't make you fast. You can stay a while and turn in this former Church converted into a showroom of glass works. Certainly an impressive place. However the price is over the top. 7 euros for adults and 5 for children is a price to first strip Museum. If you want to see only a small demonstration of glassmaking perhaps is less or even free at calle Bressagio.

  • It's a happy coincidence that we got there because really, this place is not indicated. I have first didn't pay attention the House honestly, we went and were hit by the scents and the heat to start. A lady came to tell us a bit quickly but ill at ease however, a participation of 5 euros was requested for "the show, the artist", with a refreshing humility. The place grabs us unannounced, ceiling height, apparent traditional carpentry, briquettes to the wall, mezzanine or passageway open on a chandelier of madness that diffuses a soft light, and oh music classic. The tone is set. The artist created 3 items under our noses, in all humility. Then, trick of the "loft". I must admit that seeing the string defeat on the staircase, I thought that someone had forgotten to put it back. Never mind, I'm going up. Upstairs is in a dark half, the chandelier now to a man's height is sumptuous and it highlights soft paintings and productions of glass covering the walls from end to end, a bridge with a work in progress in a corner of the room , and through the canopies, a disused in the grey landscape. It is at this precise moment that emotion wins me, without warning, something beautiful but confusing! It does not last long: back down and the cord is closed... Oops sorry but it was open, and saw what I felt I'm not at all sorry! We go back and find out that this workshop is a church...

  • It was very nice presentation and you can order whatever you want and you can pick it up the next day it was beautiful
  • I went to this location because of the good reviews, and at the beginning everything was wonderful. There was someone there charging $5.00 for the glass demostration, which I was happy to pay since I already knew beause of the reviews. Afterwards I decided to ask how much it was beatific jug and the same person who charged me the $5.00 told me it was $50.00 and I told them if I buy jewelry. Do you think you can give me a better price? And he said "yes, okay $40.00". I went to see the jewelry and I really didnt like anything, so I decided to leave. But I liked the Jag so much that I came back. We are talking about 5 minutes. When I went back inside, I couldn't find the same person that took care of me, and I decided to ask someone else, who was the owner. When I asked him for the price of jug, he tells me that the price is $70.00 and I tell him someone else told me $50.00 and If I bought some jewelry he told me even $40.00, and he treated in such a manner that no one should be treated. Like I was crazy and a liar. Very, very rude!!! Why would I lie about aomething so stupid? After that incident, even if it was $5.00, I wouldn't have bought anything from such a mean and rude individual. DO NOT recommend it at all! They owner needs to learn so manners. If I could negative reviews, I would.
