  • Glass blowing is fascinating - but if you only have time to go to one glass related attraction - go to Chihuly Garden & Glass. The work here is nice, but not spectacular... 
  • We had a very brief visit as the place was about to close when we got there. The workers inside were very friendly and answered all our questions about their merchandise and the classes they offer. Wo...  more »
  • At the time I went, I actually lived in the area. Unsigned up for 6 week glassblowing classes. This was an intimate class size and gave you the most hands on experience. I had just a great experience ...  more »

  • I only gave a four because it's really pricey. The tutorials that they hold are fantastic! They also offer classes in a one on one setting. We did a 4- hour class and had a great date night. The artist was very passionate about his craft and we had fun learning in a very hands on environment.
  • The experience I had with my particular instructor is the reason for this awful review. My instructor had a fairly thick accent (German? Russian?), spoke quickly, and had a soft voice. The area with the forges is loud because of all the fires going and the air blowing about. I constantly had to make her repeat things (which clearly annoyed her). I understood less than one-third of what she said, and instead had to rely on her demonstations. When I wasn't doing it right, she would push me out of the way to do it. When it came time to blow the glass, she told me I couldn't hold the pole while she was rolling it around to shape the glass. Where the pole was situated, it was at knee-height and she was constantly rolling the pole away from me. I had no idea how I was supposed to blow constantly while bending over while the pole was rolling this way and that , but luckily another worker saw what has happening and gave me a flexible tube to attach to the end of pole so I was able to sit down and blow consistently. Compared to the other students around me, I did maybe one-fourth of the work they did; their instructors spoke loudly and clearly, gave them good instructions, and would help them to understand what they were supposed to be doing. My instructor just made me feel dumb (and I'm into all sorts of art mediums, so it's not like I'm new to this sort of thing). I didn't care so much about the final product as I did about the process, and my instructor completely ruined the experience for me. My bowl is imperfect, as I expected it to be, but I just wish I contributed more to its imperfection. It was a frustrating experience overall; I knew there would be parts she would have to do since she's the expert, but it really felt like I just watched the entire time. After she put the bowl in the place where they cooled, she literally just walked away from me and I didn't see her again. I'm just glad I didn't pay $150 for this experience. -- I did give it 2 stars because the rest of the staff was nice and helpful.
  • We had such a great time!! Our instructor was incredible. They help you decide exactly what you want to make and blow exactly that. Be sure request Kianna for your class!
  • The tour is not worth it, as you are allowed to watch them blow glass for free from the cafe or from the gallery area. We were expecting the artists to be blowing glass but instead they were producing paper weights for an order. I feel as though a glass blowing studio tour should include glass blowing... There are other classes that are quite hands on and likely provide a better experience.
  • This was awesome. An experience to be had for sure. You will not regret the time spent because it is so much fun. You also get to take whatever you make home with you! We made plates, because they were fun, but found out that the bowls seem to be the most practical object.
