The instructors were very friendly and knowledgeable. They made us feel safe and comfortable. The ornaments came out amazing!
It was a very good family experience. We were well informed, well treated, the two "instructors" were very professional and FUN at the same time. THANK YOU VERY MUCH
Awesome class....so easy going and positive. Just a nice night
This was a wonderful experience. You were given step by step instructions while do the glSs blowing yourself. I could not have asked for a better experience. I would highly recommend this shop. The owner and instructor were great!!!
Good natured, patient and talented- what’s not to like? We had a great time.
It was fun and the two gentlemen that worked with us were excellent. Both were very knowledgeable and they worked together with one assisting with the glass blowing and the other helping us with the next step before it happened. We had a great time and hope to return with some other friends.
My son did the make your own ornament class and it was great. Individualized instruction and just the right of help when needed to perfect things. The guys working were so friendly and personable and overall an enjoyable experience.
Enjoyed the experience of glass blowing with Ian who was incredibly knowledgeable and ensured we had a safe and fun experience!!
I went with 3 friends and we had so much fun and laughed the whole time. Ian was a pro and his assistant (Tom (I believe)) was knowledgeable and kind. I was surprised at how hot it was there and how quick the process was. I definitely recommend Gather Glass.
Excellent instruction on how to make an ornament
You guys have a Perfect flow to this class making the experience very comfortable! Thank you, you made the perfect Mother’s Day gift so easy
We had Amazing time, the staff was very friendly, helpful and patient. They were great instructors and really explained every step of the process. Can’t wait to go back!
Staff was very knowledgeable and talked us through every step of the process. We made beautiful ornaments and will be back.
It was really informative about the process and how glass is made. The injections and support were clear. It was informative as well as fun.
The staff was friendly and patient. It was a fun day for my family
Shane and Benny were very attentive in guiding you through the process of glass making. They worked great together as a team and made the experience fun!
Thanks so much for a great experience! My girls enjoyed the class and I appreciate the effort & time to meet me downtown to pick up our ornaments before we had to leave for MA. Nice group of guys who run this!! I recommend the class to anyone interested in a fun, creative adventure!
Benny and Shane were great teachers - they adjust their approach depending on the needs of their students. Both my son who is 15 and my daughter who is 12 had the same great experience. Benny and Shane were entertaining and engaging and the students produced beautiful pieces of art. Gather Glass has a great community purpose and focus and the studio was a fun place to be at. We will definitely go again - it is entertaining for all ages and needs. It is also great to see a local studio continuing an art form that is several hundred years old.
Staff super nice. Mission awesome. Great teachers. Loved it.
I thought the staff and facility were great. My one complaint is the class online description. Although very reasonable priced, the description leads you to believe its a full hour. The act of making a single ornament was very brief even with the crash course in equipment usage was much faster than I was expecting. With a lack in better description I just was expecting more teaching time. I would go love to go back and learn more.
Wonderful experience - everyone was very knowledgeable and nice - loved the hands on work and learning about the process - left with a great gift - will tell friends!
They took their time explaining how everything worked and it was obvious to see that both men love and enjoy their job. Their creations are impressive to look at while walking into their store.
The class was wonderful! Very thorough and I am very happy with how my ornament turned out!
This was my second visit to Gather and I am definitely planning on coming back again! The guys are all so great and the experience is fun!!
Went with my daughter for her birthday. It was a fun experience with easy to follow instructions and a very casual and friendly atmosphere. My daughter even got a special Birthday picture! I would highly recommend!
Had the best time with my wife at Gather, we made some ornaments and had fun doing it. These guys are great, so knowledgable, and great teachers who obviously love what they do. Its a must do for anyone. Thank you Gather.
Bennie and Shane are AWESOME! I appreciated how they explained the entire process from start to finish. Matt and I had so much fun creating the ornaments for our moms. What a great experience...can't wait to get them in the mail! Thanks again for everything! Patti and Matt
This was a fun learning experience... to learn & watch as well as to make something useful/for display! It appeals to both genders and was a great date! Perfect location... we walked down from Federal Hill dinner & walked back. Good job!! We will be back & have shared w friends.
Amazing staff! Took both of my Daughters (24 and 19) and they both loved it! Really great experience. Will definitely repeat.
Great class! The teachers where awesome! Can't wait to go back!
I had such a great time. It is such an interactive experience that anyone can enjoy. Must be willing to take instruction to yield the best product. I loved how they give you a free photo to take home of you actually blowing the glass. Staff is lively and fun to work with. Very memorable experience, will be back soon to do the drinking glasses class!
Great class! We had a group of four and it was a blast learning how to do make glasses, but also learning about the ins and outs in general of their craft. Everyone we interacted with was nice, humorous and allowed for a great time doing something different and local while we were in Providence. Would return in a heartbeat.
Great class! It was great how much apart of the process we were able to be and Benny ROCKED at making us all feel comfortable and making sure we knew what we were doing! Thank you!
The team is great! They put everyone's mind at ease and take the time to really walk everyone through each step. Highly recommended.
I did the class with my 12 year old son. Everything was well-organized and everyone from the instructor to the owner was very friendly and accomodating.
We had a great time making the glass ornaments. The instructors took care and time with each of my kids during the class. They made sure safety was a priority and the kids were learning about the process and tools during their experience. I would highly recommend doing a class here. It was fun, interesting and educational.
You guys were wonderful. The class was soo much fu ! Thank you for including my daughter.
The guys were very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful! It was an outstanding experience!

I loved the whole experience!!!!!! Of course, having a patient instructor giving clear directions is very important. Ben was an excellent teacher. I’m looking forward to taking another class!!!!!
