Our experience glass making was amazing! He made it so fun to learn and was a great teacher. After he demonstrated his very talented skills he taught us both how to make our own pendants and they turned out great.

One of best excursions we have experienced. Especially, you got to learn how to make art with glass and you gotta make one of your own in the end. It was so much fun and great teacher!!! Worth it for sure and if you like arts and crafts, DO NOT MISS THIS ONE!

Really enjoyed the experience of seeing how glass can be worked up close and being able to make my own glass pendant with friendly, expert tuition. All safety measures in place. Was one of the highlights of my trip to Venice.

Amazing time! The instructor was patient and went through each step carefully before letting us do the work ourselves! He was friendly and really enjoys his job. My kids, 22 and 15 thought this was amazing! We have a new appreciation for all the glass work we see in Venice! I would highly recommend this experience. His shop is off the beaten path and so worth it!

Great Glass Torch work Class in Venice
Vicki_U
, Jul 2022
I was really looking forward to this and was not disappointed. I thought it was a glass blowing class, but it was a torch work class. The instructor did blow a small piece of glass though. I'm glad it wasn't done with a big furnace, it was very hot outside. The instructor was very good at teaching and we learned a few skills and how to heat and manipulate the glass. We pulled some stringer and fused two rods together to create a twisty pendant. Lots of fun and well worth the money.

Really fun! Especially for tweens/teens.

kids had a blast, he explained everything in detail and had them do it but was there to help so we never felt it unsafe. The kids each made a glass twisted flame for a necklace and now wear them proudly :) We debated this versus going to see the factories at Morano, glad we did this instead since they got to make something. He even showed them how he does a glass blowing project. The pieces he has for sale are really impressive, we couldn't buy anything because of our travel plans, but they were cool to see.

The host was very patient and friendly, and also very safety conscious. We learned a lot about the technique and had a lot of fun making our own creations. A very special family memory.

Great experience, shame Viator booking went weird
Robyn_T
, Jun 2022
A wonderful experience, would definitely do again. Great explanation and support in making our own pendants, and discount of some other beautiful pieces (no pressure to buy but a few in our group wanted to so loved the discount). It was really fun, and a great way to learn about some history while being hands on. Thank you! The only downside was that although I was told you could only have a maximum of 2 people per session (and us being a foursome had to split and therefore lose time for other activities) Viator (not the lovely man running this) booked a 3rd for the first session, and a 3rd & 4th for the second (luckily after some time discovering the issue and advising the 2nd session would run late the 3rd & 4th cancelled which prevented the second group from finishing even later (which would have caused us to miss our next paid activity. Being that the first group had 3 people this session ended late, causing the second to start late and our foursome just made our next activity on time (although missed out on the chance for lunch, a shame considering it meant no food between 9am and 4.30). I hope Viator can fix this issue because (although the 3rd person in the first session was lovely) the delay was a real shame (and it would have been nice to have done the session as our foursome it that was doable, which Viator allowed for the second session) and if the second group remained a four we would have definitely missed our second activity which would have lost out on a lot of prepaid money. If there could have been four taking part, then it’s upsetting that in the several conversations with Viator support that they didn’t offer us to do this together. I cannot find a way to complain to Viator (as this is aimed solely at them not the supplier who was fantastic) as I would like some money refunded (from Viator) for the problems described above.

Must do Venice Glass activity!

Massimiliano was one of the highlights of our Venice trip! He was very patient and an excellent instructor. I loved his work and purchased a couple of items which he was kind enough to discount. I would recommend this activity to anyone and would do it again. Plus you did not have to go to Murano to get exposed to glass making which is fantastic.

This was an awesome experience!! By far the best thing we did while in Venice. Just as a note, the class is not in Murano, but we were able to make our own piece of glass and got a fantastic demonstration. 10/10 would go again.
