Great first time experience! My husband and I did it as part of a date day everything went so well. Instructor was so nice and we all had a great time!
Awesome experience, highly recommended.
Class was fun and informative.
We had a great session with Ben! He did such a great job of walking us through the whole process, without making us feel like the amateurs we are! We came home with some really cool pieces, I think we will be going back for more!!
The class wasn't real big so it gave us each enough time to work and not feel rushed. Very hands on, great learning experience.
The class was so much fun. The instructor, Ben, was excellent. He was patient and explained everything very well. He knew when to jump in to help. This studio provides a wonderful experience, especially if you want to try something you've never done. I took a friend; and we are already planning our next visit and who to invite to come along.
Ben was very personable and laid back. He always had a smile on his face and he was patient when giving instructions. I didn’t feel like I was doing anything wrong even if I didn’t do things exactly as he had showed us. I felt comfortable and safe while working with the molten glass as well. I’ve already told friends about it and I definitely want to come back, sooner rather than later.
We enjoyed our first glass blowing experience very much! It was a comfortable atmosphere with only 5 people in the class. Ben the owner is an very nice guy and great teacher. We’ll definitely go back again!
Ben is an outstanding instructor who gives the student the opportunity to be creative without being overwhelmingly technical or micromanage the process. Amazing experience. Thanks Ben.
The entire Glass Experience great! Ben was helpful, easy going, and professional. He provided excellent instructions to help the participants to create beautiful pieces of art! Thank you...we will come back for more classes!
Class was amazing! My husband and son enjoyed it very much and were very pleased with how their projects turned out!
What an awesome activity!!!!!
We did this as a couple and had so much fun. Instructor took his time with each of us to help us create an object. I made an ornament. Hubby made a bowl. Lots of fun! Hoping to do it again in the spring!
We had a really great experience. I've seen some glass blowing/making stuff on TV, but had never tried it. It was an interesting, challenging and most importantly a fun experience. Would definitely do this again.
Ben created the perfect family experience. I would highly recommend glass blowing with Through the Fire Studio for a family or friend outing.
This was our second visit and just as much fun as the first! It is a great hands-on learning experience. The instructor really took his time explaining and teaching us the art of glass blowing and creating with glass. Loved it!
Ben was very thoughtful patient and made the experience a pleasure for both us. Looking forward to going back to learn more about flamework. Thank you!!!
Had an excellent time learning how to blow glass! Ben was an excellent teacher, very patient, and incredibly knowledgeable.
A great lesson from a knowledgeable teacher!

Ben explained things very well. We all enjoyed having a choice of what to make and then the experience of actually making it. Thank you very much.
It's great to see how the glass melts and changes shape! Gorgeous results!
I really enjoyed my experience and I definitely want to come back!
This was our second time at Through The Fire. We came back because we had such a great experience making our own glass masterpieces. We plan on going back a third time in the Fall.
Gary and I learned an even deeper appreciation of this art form. We enjoyed the class very much and shared the experience with everyone over Easter. Thank you so much. Thumbs up to our wonderful instructor.
Ben makes the whole experience very enjoyable. He has a nice balance between teaching and letting people learn and be involved.
This was our second visit and we enjoyed it every bit as much as the first. The instructor was very pleasant and our pieces turned out great. Can't wait to go back again.
We had a great time!
My friends and I had a great time. Ben is a fun guy and great teacher. We all plan to take another class in the near future. I would recommend this experience to everyone!

The instructor was very good, very patient and very personable. We enjoyed the small class size and the chance to watch what the other people made. My husband made an ornament and I made a bowl. It was a neat experience to learn about the art and then be able to do it.
The staff was very helpful and hands on. They made the glassblowing process fun and easy. They explained everything very well and the final pieces were beautiful.
Both of the artists/glass-makers on staff were welcoming, accommodating, and very flexible to work with. Excellent care and attention was given to ensure the safety of all participants. Creativity was encouraged, and all questions were thoroughly answered.
Really great experience with a friendly staff that works well with you. Very happy we did this.
The glass experience was one that I will never forget. Such a fun time and the instructor, Ben, was an excellent teacher and great personality. I will recommend this to my friends. My project, ball, will hang in my home to remind me of Through the Fire gallery.
We really enjoyed the class. Ben was a great teacher and we look forward to coming back again to try some different projects.
We had SO much fun at our class! The instructor Ben was great and explained everything very well! At first I didn't know exactly what to expect, and how much I would be able to do myself, but you make your item from start to finish! Ben is right there every step to help but he lets you do everything! We took the class for our first year wedding anniversary and it was by far THE BEST date night activity we've done! I HIGHLY recommend giving it a try! High five Ben! We will definitely be back!!!
Love this place will be back with friends and family Ben I give you a 10 best instructor ever! Great for most ages
The class was very entertaining. The instructor was awesome.
The whole experience was so exciting and entertaining! I was like a kid wanting to learn and do something different! Ben is so talented and it shows with his teaching and crafting! One of the best experiences I ever have had! If you want to expand your creativity and have a great time I recommend taking a class and have some great fun! I will be back for sure!
Such an amazing experience! Ben is so good at explaining each step in the process! Highly recommend this for a fun and unique experience!
