Our girl scout troop had a wonderful experience. It was very educational, interactive, and fun.
My husband and I was so amazed by the process and enjoyed watching the glass go through changes. We will be back and I will be telling all of friends about Decatur Glassblowing. The staff was the best. They walked all of us through the steps and was there to answer any questions.
Fun and interesting.
The staff made directions and safety tips clear. It was a fun group activity, one I look forward to repeating!
It was great fun and yes, I can see how it could be addictive. I already want to do it again. In the spirit of full disclosure, I did feel a little miffed because I was told I could not mix colors only to watch 3-4 people after me do exactly what I wanted. Since I have not yet seen my bauble I can't really complain, but I would have loved to combine my 2 favorite colors. Also, though it was interesting to learn from 2 obviously knowledgeable people, I did notice that one allowed for larger product than the other. So I will get a little, tiny ball and my friend gets one almost twice the size.
I enjoyed the class and hope to take another one soon.
The class was very informative and hands-on! I LOVED the finished piece!
This is such a fun experience with great instructors. I love being able to create my own unique piece.
Teachers were very hands on, will recommend this to friends.
Lee was great! Very interesting and lots of fun.
Very informative class. Lee was very kind and engaging with the entire group. It was more hands on that I expected, it certainly made it more enjoyable.
Instructors were awesome. The way the class was setup was good . I am ready to plan my next class
Abigail was very good. I know she repeats the same info many times a day thru several classes and she does it with patience.
I enjoyed the class. Would have liked to have seen more of a demonstration of the glassblowing. And would have liked to spend more time with the instructor.
Enjoyed the class, would have preferred different color options and a little more info on what to do to get specific effects in our paperweights. Loved the assistant instructor, would love to return for more classes!
Extremely knowledgeable instructors John & Lee. Very professional and friendly. Through safety talk. Nate has an outstanding studio and classes that everyone can enjoy. Highly recommend the classes.
Really enjoyed class - instructors were knowledgeable and very helpful. Really fun date night..
They explained the process, so you knew what to expect. They worked one on one until you were satisfied with the piece. Knowledgeable and friendly.
Had a great time! Will be coming back@
Loved this class! Instructors were great and had so much fun! I’ll definitely be back!
It was great! I was nervous as first but the Instructors were great and explained the process very clearly. Would definitely go again!
It was fun learning about how glass is made but it was even more fun getting hands-on experience making your own glass piece. I would recommend this if you are looking for something new to do on date night, or girls night out, or even something fun to do with your older kids. Plus you get to have a permanent reminder of your experience!
Such a fun time! I will be back to create another piece for another season and bring friends. Great date night activity too!
We had so much fun and it was a great experience...will be back again.
Very well organized, friendly experience. The instructors made me and my friend very comfortable, but still excited for such an extraordinary activity. We'd like to be back if we have a chance.
Great gun and very reasonable THKS!!!
Instructors were so patient and helpful. Safety was stressed, but the class was fun for the wide range of ages attending. We did not feel that we were being rushed, and had plenty of opportunity to ask questions. Our group ranged from 14 to 59, and everyone had a great time. We will be back!
We had a great time and will plan on doing it again soon!
I completely enjoyed the experience. The only thing thst would have been better would have been if we discussed how to make actual glass. It was fun and informative.
It was tons of fun! And the instructors made sure to explain everything beforehand.
I had an amazing time! Will definitely be back for another class.
Extremely knowledgeable and fun! A date planner booked this for us and we would have never thought of this. We had so much fun.
I really enjoyed the class. The demonstration was great, and the teachers were very helpful and understanding.
A great time. Loved making special memories with my granddaughter!
The staff was exceptional. A group of us came and had a fantastic time. I highly recommend this
It was great!
I had never do it before and I had a great time! Will be back.
We had a blast and learned more than expected. The instructors were informative and fun and took the time to fully answer questions.
