Dan, the owner, was great! Very patient with clumsy first timers. :-)
Instructor was great, it was exciting, and we had a blast.
Amber was very knowledgeable, answering all questions and making excellent recommendations. Would recommend this service to everyone.
Dan was very knowledgeable and helpful. Had a great time being introduced to glassblowing and considering doing it again. Dave
The artist teaching us was helpful, informative, and made the experience very enjoyable! My husband and I both had a marvelous time. It was so neat getting to actually work with the glass-rather than just watching-as we have seen numerous demonstrations before this.
Very safe and fun! My sister and daughters loved it as did i.
The class itself was great. The pickup was a bit frustrating because my piece wasn't labeled/organized well and I couldn't get it because the assistant wasn't sure which one was mine...meaning another trip out there.
I really enjoyed the hands on experience of the Hot Glass Experience Workshop. I appreciate the detail provided throughout the process and the 'scientific' elements of glass blowing. Can't wait to see the finished product!
Our instructor was awesome! He took the time to show us the ropes of a totally new experience for us. He was patient and very thorough in his instructions and gave us a true hands on experience. Thanks!
We had a great time! Our instructor, Amber, was lovely and informative! She gave us an excellent, fast-and-furious rundown of glassblowing, complete with "trivia" (jokes). She answered all of our questions and helped us successfully create two nice pieces! We'd definitely go back (and, in fact, will have to in order to pick up our creations). :)
My mom and I had a great time in this class! We got to be way more hands on than expected, and our instructor was funny, knowledgeable, and was super helpful. We both learned a lot and made beautiful pieces!
I went with little to no expectations of what I would do at the class. The owner/artist working with us really made an effort to let each student be as hands on and involved in their own project as safely as possible.
We had a great time. We made two pieces and enjoyed the experience.
We had a great time! Dan is very knowledgeable in the art of glass and also a very patient and thorough instructor. He took the time and attention required by each participant to insure they would be successful with their chosen project. The information provided and the hands on experience was just great! We plan to be back for another glass experience!
Great instructor! Patient and helpful if you need help.
so much fun! great instruction and lots of hands-on experience. would do it again!
We really had a great time. It was fun learning some of the intricacies of working with glass.
Dan was VERY knowledgeable and concerned about our safety and having an enjoyable time!! Even though he was running behind due to a client who was late he didnt rush us through our workshop. He gaves us our FULL class even though it meant he was workng later than expected.... he seemed to TRULY LOVE his job! VERY PATIENT teacher!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
The instructor was informative on all processes, concise and direct on instructions while working with myself and wife. This provided for a safe and productive workshop. We were very happy with our finished products.
Very fun, informative, hands on experience. The instructor was very friendly and helpful and made the experience. Would recommend this place to anyone! Can't wait to go back!!
my granddaughter bought me this gift for Christmas.She likes to try out things and we both enjoy this. the instructor was very nice and helpful
Daniel was great! I learned so much and can't wait to go back. He is a true professional and explained everything clearly and was super patient. I look forward to the next glass pieces that I learn to make here. What a great experience! I became a donor on the Patreon site because I feel that Ohio City Glass has so much to offer the community and Dan is the right guy to do it. Thank you so much for the inspiration, creativity and professionalism... see you in class again soon!
Dan was very informative, patient, and great at guiding you through the experience. Made it look easy even though there is a lot to learn and keep remembering. Hope to do again soon.
Amber is very skilled in her art and was kind enough to accommodate our unique style requests so that we could create some pieces that were particularly special to us.
Awesome overall experience!!
I purchased these as a Christmas gift for myself and 3 friends. It took a while to get on the schedule but was well worth it. Our instructor was very patient and entertaining and we all had a great time. I would definitely recommend Ohio City Glass!
What a fun time! Dan was great we will be back!
Daniel provided a wealth of information and was very personable. We really enjoyed the work shop and felt like we walked away with a great experience. We’re excited to pick up our piece later this week!!
Items were not finished at promised time for pick up. Items were made on Thursday, and promised to be ready for pick up on Saturday. I picked them up two days later than that, on Monday, but they still had not had the sharp edges filed down yet. I enjoyed the experience, but disappointed with the follow through from staff with regards to actually assuring the products were ready to be picked up.
The experience and instruction was great. We recommend it to others. It was not the easiest place to find.
Absolutely loved our experience!
Thought it was a cool experience. Felt it was explained in a way that we understood.
Amber, our instructor, is an excellent teacher. She was constantly monitoring our safety every step of the way. She explained not only the processes but the science (chemistry/physics/engineering) behind what we were doing. She gave us excellent artistic/creative advice as well. My 12 year-old granddaughter was fascinated and delighted with this experience and it turned out to be the perfect gift for both of us.
instructor was very nice and knowledgeable... studio owner was very rude...I also felt that when working with molten glass more safety measures would have been in place.
My wife and I had the time of our lives!!
