"This was a Christmas gift from our daughter and my husband and I had a great time. We went to the glass flaming class at in Boston and made marbles. Very interesting. Very nice place and everyone was so nice. It was great to do/learn something really different."
"Our glass blowing class was so much fun. Our instructor, Ken, was very knowledgeable and personable. He explained everything up front and had us practice the process with cold poles before we handled the molten glass. We were nervous to work with such insanely hot material, but Ken's helpful manner and awareness of safety issues made it much less nerve-wracking. We made beautiful paperweights and watched him demonstrate a complicated vase and an easier pumpkin. Overall, we were both very happy with the experience, and want to find a glass studio closer to home to continue our new hobby!"
