I hosted my friend's bachelorette/bridal shower gathering with Gather. None of us had ever blown glass before, and everyone was excited to do it. We brought snacks and drinks and had a great time. The guys were amazing - great instruction and very helpful and engaging!!
Gather Glass is the BEST place to learn how to glass blow if you have never done it before (like myself) or if you need to brush up your skills and just want to create some more beautiful artwork! Benny and Shawn are literally the best! We gave them generous tips as well (not required), but we did because they were simply FANTASTIC! So patient with each of us who went (4 in total) and really taught us each how to glass blow just like the professionals on Blown Away!!! We are all planning to go back again, and I even have more friends who are joining us!!! They even offer a 4-week class too, which might be something I do in the future! Even though on Groupon it indicates to make your own wavy bowl... they taught my friend, who had a little bit of experience glass blowing, how to make a beautiful whiskey cup!!! They are phenomenal teachers, let alone just extremely nice, warm, and welcoming people!!! Planning our next adventure back there in a couple of weeks!!! Groupon needs to have more deals like this! This was so much fun for a group of friends for a day/night out or even just a date with your significant other! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
Great environment, great teacher, and had a fantastic time making a wavy bowl. I’ve been here a few times and blowing glass is addictive. Your masterpiece makes great gifts too.
Very informative session while making the wavy bowl. Really enjoyed it.
Had a great time, Tom and Matt were very nice and helpful in their explanation step by step through the process. It was very cool to not only get the bowl in the end but to be a part of the whole process.
I took my mother to gather glass as a mother’s Day gift. We had a great time. Ben was fun, super patient and it was such a nice time! If you are looking for a unique experience and to see some really cool art you should go here!
This visit was planned in secret for 7 months as a surprise for my new wife. We used the frit from our unity ceremony to help make a sculpture. Matt was instrumental in setting up the whole thing. Shane and Ian were amazing at showing us what to do and helping us and did a wonderful job at the actual art of the sculpture. They worked with us and helped us celebrate our new marriage. I cannot express my thanks enough to the whole team. Benny was in the shop when we arrive to pick up our finished pieces. He was working with a young some young people and he was great, he explained what they and he were doing and how the process worked. I highly recommend Gather Glass to anyone who has an interest in glass blowing or sculpting. Thank you to everyone involved in our special event.
Very fun and interesting! Great teachers.
It was our first glassblowing experience. They did a great job making us comfortable that we would make masterpiece with their instruction. Awesome experience. Thank you
My mom and I came here for Mother’s Day to make a wavy bowl and had an excellent time. Staff is very welcoming and makes you feel comfortable throughout all the steps of the process. Would highly recommend!
Great experience - Just get that bathroom squared away!
Amazing place. Such an awesome crew that works there. Will definitely be coming back!
Individualized attention, very professional & accomodating for different needs & skill levels! The completed items are beautiful & functional. Highly recommend!
The experience was engaging from the moment I walked in to when I left. The owners clearly demonstrated a passion for what they do and were excited to share. Instructions were clear and concise while making me feel confident even though I had no idea what I was doing. I asked many questions and they were happy to answer and educate. Great experience, worth every penny.
I thought the class was excellent. It was evident that the instructors (Tom and Ian) were well-versed in their craft and offered helpful knowledge when leading us through the workshop. I was very nervous beforehand but they made it seem like a breeze! This was a Christmas present for my mom, and she already told me she can't wait to take her friend for another round! Cheers!
great class with step by step explanation along the way. highly recommend!
We had a wonderful experience. The two instructors were very helpful, accommodating and great at explaining all the steps. The experience was very memorable and interesting.
We all had a blast. Informative, interactive and just so much fun. Benny and Thomas were great to deal with.
Owners were friendly, clearly know what they are doing and help you make a great project. Loved it!
My friend and I had a great time at Gather Glass. Ian and Tom were patient and made sure we were safely enjoying the experience of making a wavy bowl. I will definitely recommend this to friends and It also makes a terrific gift.
They were very helpful and friendly
This was my first glass blowing class and I chose to do the wavy bowl. Benny was an amazing instructor and explained every portion prior to starting and then goes through it as well as you go along. Him and his assistant Shane work together perfectly. The wavy bowl was an awesome project and incorporated all of the techniques from the other projects but also adds in the detail of spinning the bowl to open it and shape the waves of the bowl. They guide and help but you are actually doing 90% of the work and this ends up being 100% your own creation. The final product is unbelievable. It looks professionally done! We live in Florida and visit family in the area a couple of times a year and this will now also be included in our trips. My recommendation is to splurge for the bowl class of you are contemplating doing a class. It is well worth the slight extra charge. Thanks again Benny and Shane!
I’ve been wanting to take a class at Gather Glass for quite some time now. I’m SO happy to have finally done it. The place was quaint, and the artists were amazing. Very inviting, professional, and kind. Couldn’t have been happier with the experience!
