Какво ще правите

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!

Where to start... There are a few glass related experiences in Venice on AirBnB. But the others are on the island of Venice, not Murano. And more importantly, they're at most 90 minutes. Although I have not done them personally, having done this one, I can say you could not have nearly the same experience in such a short time. If you want to truly experience what Venice (and more correctly, Murano) is known for, you NEED to do this experience. You WILL create your own work, you WILL experience the heat of the furnace (1400+C), you WILL have an AMAZING time! Many thanks to Benjamin for his tutelage and patience helping me create my own "masterpiece" to take home -- a treasured keepsake and memory for the rest of my life.

A fantastic experience that we will remember forever, it was one of the highlights of our trip. As complete beginners Ben was extremely accommodating and provided just enough guidance so everything was safe and we produced drinking glasses that we are proud of! I wouldn't be at all nervous about going if you have no experience as everything is so well organised, can't wait for our pieces to arrive home by post as a reminder of a fantastic experience and trip!

Our unique experience at Roberto’s factory made for an unforgettable anniversary for me and my husband. Marco made us feel welcome and shared the workings of the factory. Then Ben took over and patiently taught us the basics of glassblowing. He then guided us through the process of making our own small bowl, glass or vase. I loved spending three hours on the production floor watching Roberto and his employees do their “dance” as they expertly work in concert to create their products.

This was the highlight of my trip to Venice! The team at Wave were so friendly and helpful. It was the real deal, not some touristy gimmick. These are true artists and craftsmen that love sharing their passion with new people. Would come back to Venice just to do this again…10/10!!

If you’d like to go a bit deeper than just watching master artisans create magical glass art, then this experience is for you! Marco started us off with a overview of the studio and process and then Ben took over with actually getting us into the practical experience. The furnaces are intensely hot and I totally underestimated the sheer physicality of it all. Ben was a very patient instructor who really broke down the steps to make it less intimidating and doable. Very, very glad we took the time to do this even if Ben lost some hair over me ;-) Grazie to a great team at Wave and our best wishes for much success with your lovely work!

The making of Murano Glas is a century old craftsmanship, the beautiful results can be seen in a lot of places in Venice (Le Stanze del Vetro on San Giorgio and the Glas Museum on Murano) and the Lagoon. But how is it to work with fluid glas, how is to stand at the (super hot) furnace, wich movements do you need to get glas in shape? - This is the chance, where you can make a unique experience and find answers on these questions. Together with my girlfriend we booked this experience. After a short tour through the factory including explanations to all steps of the process, we learned the basic movements getting molten glas out of the furnace and on the blowers pipe. Benjamin, a young blowing master, was guiding us through the whole process. And it was great!!! We got two pieces that are beautiful, picked them up them after a cooling process of 24 hours, and now we have two nice pieces at home. In general the whole team of the factory was very friendly and open to visitors. We enjoyed it to be able looking around, because normally the access to the Murano factories is rather impossible. We think its a great opportunity, especially in getting a understanding in crafting and the specific quality of Murano glas.
