Það sem verður gert

First let me say that this experience is not for everyone! glassblowing is an extremely physical craft, so if you are afraid of extreme heat or intense physical activity then I suggest you take the other experience we are offering. Theres no other experience on airbnb Venice like this one. Guaranteed!
If you are ready for an intense experience that will live in your memories and heart forever than you are in the right place!

Step 1 - intro to glassblowing

A small 30 minutes lecture and tour about glassblowing in our factory.

Step 2 - practical exercises with no glass

hands on exercises to develop glassblowing’s basic movements and hand eye coordination. (15-45 minutes depending on number of people and on how fast you will learn)

Step 3 - practical exercises with hot glass

hands on exercises with hot glass to develop a good feeling with the moving 1000 C molten glass (15-45 minutes depending on number of people and on how fast you will learn)

Step 4 - blow your own Murano glass artifact

you will have time to either make a drinking cup/ornament or a small custom glass vase
(time will depend on what you will decide to make and number of people)

The piece will have to anneal overnight so you can pick it up the next day. We can also ship your piece to you anywhere in the world but it is not included in the cost of the experience.

See you in Murano!!!!!!!
Other things to note
Its not gonna be easy! You must commit 100% and concentrate deeply. After you will be tired mentally and physically! The piece can be taken home after glass cooling cycle (2 days). we can ship too.

Hello,
My name is Roberto. I’m the youngest glass master in Murano and I opened my own shop in 2016. I love glass art and I love to share this love with as many people as I can! Thats why I developed a teaching method so that anyone can learn glassblowing easily! In Murano they will tell you that it takes 10, 20, or even 30 years to learn how to blow glass. But with my teaching process you will start blowing glass from day one and immediately take home some of your own custom made Murano glass artifacts!

This is an excellent experience where you get to do all of the steps to make your own piece. I would definitely do it again, it is truly unique. They were working on giant museum pieces all around us while we worked. Note that the size of the piece is limited by the amount of glass you get (small vase or soup bowl size). Otherwise there wouldnt be time to cool the glass.

Wonderful experience! We really appreciated learning about the science and history of glassblowing specific to Murano before the hands-on portion. Benjamin was very helpful walking us through the process to make our own special creations. The whole team was very welcoming and we now have a much greater appreciation of their craft and talent. Highly recommend!

This is a true hands on immersion experience. We were on the floor with the masters. We were making our glass piece right along side their team as they made beautiful works of glass. Every step was fun, informative, and hands on. We enjoyed it very much!

I can’t exaggerate how great of an experience this was. Watching the factory make the glass was very interesting and satisfying, and getting to do it ourselves was a true adventure! Prepare to step outside of your comfort zone and into a very hot furnace room. The results are truly rewarding and I can’t believe how amazing the staff was. We both made large drinking cups that had our customized color designs and love the way they turned out! Thank you Roberto and the entire team for a wonderful experience. I hope others give it a try- it is worth the money :)

I booked this experience to do smth special with my family to celebrate my husband’s birthday I was happy to find Roberto’s class as it looked not like a tourist simple entertainment but like a real experience. We came at 2pm to Murano to meet Benjamin Lintell in the glass factory who was our guide and teacher. Very kind and patient, explaining all process and movements, giving us confidence. All four of us had time to create a real glass piece of the color we choose. This is a real unique experience. As well it was so interesting to see the factory team working next to you creating a special order of huge plates, making them one after one, looking the same but each was so unique. And it was interesting after our lesson to understand the glass creating process. I will definitely recommend this experience. Especially it you are looking to something with your teen children.
