    Really enjoyed this activity. Massimilliano gave a quick recap of the history behind glass making and how it was moved to the island of Murano which was very interesting and then he demonstrated several techniques before making a figurine. Best bit though was when I got to try making things myself. Highly recommend doing this activity.

    Brilliant lesson. Massimiliano was very friendly and gave a great history of the glass making process and showed us how he creates such beautiful pieces by making one in front of our eyes. A piece that we brought and will cherish as a memory of our trip. He then let us create our own small pendant. He was very patient and showed us the best and safest techniques. A great experience and well worth the money.

    This was the best organized vacation experience I have ever had! The artist put me at ease almost immediately and I was able to make a beautiful gift for a friend. This made my entire one-day trip to Venice worth it and if I’m ever back there, I would definitely take the class again! It was worth every single penny!!!
