We had a great time learning about glass and glassblowing. It was a wonderful private experience and it was an excellent intimate experience without having to venture to Murano and for an easy afternoon activity. Would recommend it for anyone who enjoys crafts and wants to do something while walking through the fun streets of Venice.

Booked at random so didn’t know what to expect, this turned out to be the highlight of our trip! Massimiliano is lovely and a fabulous artist. His work is far outside what you’ll find in the tourist shops. We had a great time in his shop learning about his craft, and getting to make something ourselves was really fun. If you’re looking for something genuine and original to do in Venice, don’t miss this.

My husband and I went to Venice for a long weekend and this was definitely a major highlight of our trip! Massimiliano was so patient with us and helpful and we really learned a lot about working with the glass. We got to make our own piece after his tutorial and take it home. He was also very generous and offered us a discount on the beautiful pieces in his showroom. Would definitely recommend this experience to a friend!

We had a wonderful time at the lesson! We learned about the history of glass making in Venice and Murano, got to see an awesome demonstration and then tried ourselves! It felt safe and guided but also like we really did it ourselves. Would definitely recommend it!
