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.
It was a really cool unique activity. You guys were super helpful too
Amazing night out with my dad. Thank you for such a special night~
It was easy to schedule the class. I got a prompt response to a separate e-mail I had sent. The class was small, allowing for a more personalized experience. The glassblowers were great!
It was interesting and fun from the minute I walked in the door. I will be back!
The guys who run the class were super nice and masters of their craft. I highly recommend them!
You all are AWESOME. The atmosphere was great, laid back but safe, fun and interesting. Ive recommended friends again and again! We cant wait to come back!
Knowledgeable and personable instructors. Awesome class and the ornaments look great! I will definitely be back and have already recommended this class to a few folks.
So friendly and informative! I loved making it the ornament and they were so helpful it turned out amazing! Had to stick around and watch them make more it was so addicting! Great staff! Loved talking to them! Am definitely going back!
We really enjoyed the class and appreciate the experience/knowledge of the instructors.
Second time doing this class with you guys and both times was great fun! First class was with Ian and Matt and this last time was with Benie and Shane. Can't say enough about how friendly and helpful everybody is during these classes. The instructors are obviously very talented and they make everyone feel very safe and comfortable with the whole process of creating each ornament. Can't wait to try the paperweight and drinking glass classes too!
This was a unique experience. Our teacher was outstanding!
What a wonderful experience, our group of 4 had such a good time, and look forward to coming back!!
This was a great introduction to glass work. Class size is small, so you get to the hands-on portion pretty quickly. The guys were very open to questions and seemed to love sharing what they do. Not only would I go back for another class, but I've been telling everyone I know to check it out.
I was looking for something new to do with my son. Learned about gathered glass through the internet and decided to give it a try. It was so cool to see how ornaments were made and to be able to make our own. What a great keepsake. The instructors also demonstrated a few other pieces. Very enjoyable!
My friends and I had a lot of fun while learning about a beautiful art form. The class was hands on and very engaging. I would recommend this class.
great people, great fun!!
Surprised my husband for fathers day/birthday with class. Our 3 adult age daughters came to class for fun family time together. Awesome experience for our family! Instructor was great and knowledgeable. Perfect balance of guidance and hands on learning. Our family really enjoyed this memorable experience.
I have always wanted to learn glass blowing, and I was very excited to take the class. The instructors were nice and made us feel comfortable and welcome. And with the class being made up only of my group, we felt no pressure to succeed. At only $40 a person, the class was surprisingly affordable; definitely worth the price. We all had fun, and would absolutely love to do it again.
