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 experience was the highlight of my trip to Venice, and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for an active way to better understand the process of making glass work, the history of materials, and the history of Murano. I spent a wonderful morning with the guys in the studio and with their help and a lot of hands-on work (and sweat) produced a beautiful piece to take home. First we toured the studio, raw materials space, hot room with kilns and cold room with finishing materials. Then I was introduced to the various tools, how to use your body during glass work, and we started right into work with the molten glass and the kilns. I made a piece to take home and the guys were very insistent that it be “my own” piece with their guidance. All of the guys were super positive and friendly. Watching them work as a team so smoothly and effortlessly was incredibly inspiring. Can’t recommend this experience enough. Hope to see you again soon guys!

A great experience with a group of masters at their craft. The whole Wave Murano team flows with joy and precision. The experience was both educational and very fun.

I would say that of course the precautions seem a bit intimidating but my 66 year old mom did it and I did it. Everyone is so kind and helpful. The entire team has a vibe that’s palpable. I felt so welcome and encouraged. These guys are the real deal. And we actually got to make/train/tame glass. You cant do that with any other experiences I’ve seen on Airbnb. It’s unique, memorable and felt truly generous. The work they produce is exquisite and thoughtful. We even bought a few pieces from their showroom at very reasonable prices. ADVICE: just sign up. You won’t have a better time in Italy at any museum or store.

The workshop was great and everyone was very friendly. Marco gave us an initial introduction to the basics of glass making before we moved quickly onto the making part of the workshop where Benjamin masterfully guided us through the production of the coloured drinking glass we were going to manufacture. It was a great experience although it requires attention and the right attitude (takes years to master these skills so don’t be in a rush). Also amazing to see how the team works at a very fast phase in harmonic symbiosis. As Roberto said at the end of the workshop: “glass is addictive”. Enjoy

This was a masterclass which fulfilled a childhood dream of mine. The experience roughly had three parts: a tour of the different parts of the factory (which got quite nerdy and technical), learning how to gather, and producing a simple glass object. The gathering exercise was challenging and fun- it was a bit of a deep dive into this crucial technique which really exposed how much skill glass blowing requires. Producing an own object was also really rewarding and as hands on as it could have been- given it was my first time working with glass. Definitely recommend!
