Really fun way to spend the morning and learn something new. Massimiliano was fantastic. My husband now thinks he's Chahuilly.

My friend and I both really enjoyed our glass artwork making experience. Massimiliano is very talented and made it all look easy. He took time to explain some of the history behind glass making in Venice and Murano. He was patient with us and we thought he did a good job of demonstrating our task, letting us practice and then giving us help when we needed it. Thanks Massimiliano!

Marvelous glass making class

My young adult daughter and I had a great time making a pendant with the help of the artisan. He was very good at explaining everything and performing the task first so we could see how we should be doing it. He guided us as we made our pendants making sure we were doing everything correctly. He was very patient. I would highly recommend this class.

Fun activity with a glass artist
Anne_W
, Sep 2021
We had a great time! We got a brief introduction into the history of glass making first which was interesting and he then demonstrated the technique until it was our turn. I am far from being an artistic person and you could tell ;-) I was not very good at it but he helped all the way and was even able to correct my misshapen blob. Then my (adult) son had a go and was much better, I was quite impressed. We both had a lot of fun and something nice to take home and it made me appreciate glass artwork even more. We both recommend this experience!

We found the experience excellent. Not only did we learn about working with the glass but also a little about the history. It is such intricate work and it gave us an appreciation of the skill that these glass masters have.

A very nice introduction on the history and practice of working with Murano glass. Everything was explained and demonstrated very thoroughly before we got to try it out ourselves. We got some very nice results our lesson. We looked with different eyes at all the glassworks sold throughout the city afterwards understanding what it takes to make them.

Maximilliano was wonderful! He gave us a fun demonstration of glass blowing before we started learning how to make a pendant. I am so happy we went because it was an awesome experience!!! When we return to Venice I would love to go again to make another piece with Maximilliano!

We loved hearing a bit of the history of Murano glass making/art and the actual experience of making our own pendants with the help of the artist Massimiliano Caldarone in his studio was fascinating and fun. We highly recommend this experience!
