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!

This was an absolutely incredible experience! It was definitely the highlight of our time in Venice. Roberto's operation is truly a forward-thinking, modern glass shop, going above and beyond to offer an experience like this unlike any other on the island. This experience was slightly intimidating at first, but honestly very doable after the practice portion. The memories you'll make will last forever, and it really teaches you the zen required to engage in a craft like this. Our instructor/guide Benjamin did an amazing job educating us about glassblowing generally, the steps required to do small pieces like the ones we made, and going over many other interesting facts about the craft. This experience will open your eyes, teach you to do things you didn't even know you were capable of doing, and make you truly appreciate the craft of glassmaking. No other shop on Murano will take you this far. Can't recommend this enough.

A phenomenal experience in Murano. There's no better way to understand the mastery that goes into professional glasswork than trying your hand at it, and the expert craftsmen are extremely kind and encouraging!

This experience was super unique and I recommend it highly. You really get to know the factory and, upon finishing your session, you have an even deeper appreciation for the art of glass making.

This is an extraordinary experience and we cannot recommend it highly enough. The hosts Roberto and Marco had excellent communication and made everything easy. Marco gave us a fascinating tour of the glassworks upon arrival and was impeccable in every way. Our teacher Ben was phenomenal - great explanations and very clear with instructions for the actual glassmaking as well as health and safety. He was encouraging throughout the class with good humour and insight. We love the pieces we made and cannot wait to use them at home. This was the perfect Murano experience; worth every penny! (P.S. Covid precautions were exemplary!)
