Hi. The guys who instructed us were friendly, safe and fun. We (3 of us) ended up with Way Cool ornaments ... and we look forward to stopping by to create something again soon! And the cute little photos you took of us, when we weren't looking, are adorable and a great way to remind us what fun we had! Thanks for the great experience! Nancy
So much fun!! Ian and Tom were great instructors--so patient with us. Can't wait to return to Gather Glass for more Glass blowing sessions!!
Great time! Great employees helping each step of the way! My daughter and I felt/and really did blow glass and make a beautiful ornament. We would do it again!
It was fun for the family, safety was openly discussed, and the process was explained in a clear and kind way. Thank you!
Staff was incredibly helpful! We learned so much and had an awesome night!
The instructor amd assistant were fantastic. They made the experience really enjoyable for both myself and my daughter.
Very well explained, even tried to accommodate our request for design!
The instructor was very helpful when needed but allowed us to taste the lead when we felt comfortable with doing so. The ornaments turned out beautifully, and I can’t wait to go back!
The staff were incredibly helpful and shared so much of their knowledge with us!
I admire the work that the guys do and I am a fan of glass blowing. Also, during this class I was lucky enough to work with Ben one-on-one as the other members of our class were running late. I was grateful for his knowledge and expertise and I am looking forward to my next class.
This was a lot of fun to bring my nephew to. Ben and Shane were excellent teachers keeping everyone engaged. Would definitely come back.
What a great experience. Benny & Shane’s combined experience, passion and patience put us all at ease where we thoroughly were abke to learn and take part in this hand-on class! Such a great discovery on our part! We will definitely return for another ckass (or two or three)!
Great place with very friendly staff! Can't wait to see them expand their location!
We had a great experience and the staff was so patient and friendly. I would absolutely go back and highly recommend to others. Thank you!
Glass bowing has been on my bucket list. It was a little scary to play with glass that is over two thousand degrees, but I never felt unsafe. Everyone was friendly, location was easy to find, and honestly Gather Glass had more dates/variety to chose from and was the most affordable place I found close to home. I left with a little experience, a photo--and now an item I get to show off and say "I made this!" All my friends want to try it now!
Such a special experience, I have done this several times with family as well as coworkers and clients, I really can’t say enough good things, I recommend for young and old alike
We had a great time learning about glass blowing and making our ornament. The staff was very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. Plan on going back again and to work on a different project. All around great experience.
We had a great time at the ornament class--we will definitely be back soon to try some of the other classes!
It looked really cool.
This was such a great experience. If we are ever in town again, we’d definitely take another class.
Benny was a great instructor. He took us step-by-step on exactly what we should do, where we should stand, etc. to get the best experience but to also ensure everyone stayed safe. It’s obvious Benny loves his work and loves to teach others about it.
Excellent program, very professional, safety stressed, would recommend without any reservations. Thank you all. Dr. B.
The class was presented in a friendly, approachable way, and was well prepared.
The demonstration was very informative and the staff very knowledgeable and friendly. They answered any questions we had about the process and techniques used in the class as well as any regarding the art in general. They seem very involved in the Providence/Rhode Island communities and work to collaborate with other organizations in thoughtful and unique ways. I look forward to going back another time to try more of the classes they offer.
It is very unique experience. Not something I thought myself capable of doing. They made it so easy for me to create a beautiful piece and enjoying myself. I highly recommend to all my friends and will definitely come again
Had a great time at Gather Glass! This was my first time doing this and would highly recommend it. The class was only 4 people total which was perfect and allowed us to see all that it takes to make glassware. I will definitely be back to do this again!!
The instructor and assistant were fun, informative and helpful. The environment was well organized and inviting. The glass work on display was beautiful. We highly recommend this experience to others.
We had an amazing time. Shane and Benny were so knowledgeable and patient. They make it look so easy. We have a new appreciation for this beautiful art form. Thank you so much!!
We had a great time and the instructor was very knowledgeable and patient
Staff is interactive. It’s a nice experience.
Awesome experience. Everyone was nice and knowledgeable. We will definitely be back.
Our group had such a great time. Everyone was so kind and helpful. Ian was so knowledgable and we felt right at home. We all love our ornaments and we will be back to take more classes. I will recommend Gather Glass to all my friends.
Fun class, the instructors were very helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable. My boyfriend and I love the ornaments we made. It was a great date and surprise birthday gift.
The guys were extremely professional. The time flew by. Perfect level of difficulty for a first project (ornament). We would love to come back and try something a little more challenging next time.
Wonderful experience for the family! Great opportunity to get a glimpse into glass blowing. Benny was amazing with the kids. Walking through the process served two purposes. Everyone understood the safety aspects and they felt comfortable getting started. It was exciting for everyone! We are all looking forward to picking up the final product.
Absolutely great, the environment, the tutors, everything! Would recommend to anyone!
It was really fun, interesting, and wonderful people. Highly recommend.
Me and my girlfriend had a great time here! The teachers are really helpful and make the whole experience really enjoyable. The glassware they have in the store is also really cool.
