Last month, my wife, daughter and 9 yr old granddaughter visited Eugene, OR. We had made reservations for a private class at the Studio West glassblowing studio. The price that we were charged was quite reasonable ($160 for our group). When we arrived, we each elected to make a paperweight (they offered other options of items to make). Our teacher... More

I was trying to sell my daughter on Eugene as we were on a college tour and booked the 3 of us a glassblowing class at Studio West as a "bonus" for the weekend. It worked~ The staff were amazing and we not only had a fantastic afternoon but walked away with some awesome mementos from our venture.

I've read several of the positive reviews. They're impressive. Thus our review is a bit "off color". We were given the opportunity to create a paperweight by our daughter (North of Seattle) as a gift. The resident glass 'artist' had my wife specify the paperweight she'd prefer. She did so, and the procedure began. It was handled well, and professionally,... More

We are very sorry to hear that you were unhappy with your finished product. Hand blown glass is full of imperfections and we do explain this on our website, some times glass cracks, it can come out uneven and the color have bad reactions with each other. We do make a point in each class that if you mix colors... More

We were looking for something fun and different to do while spending some time in Eugene OR. My daughters loved it and we all learned a lot about glass and then got to take home our hand blown ornaments. Fun, entertaining, hands on, different. A great afternoon. They were also very accommodating for my daughter in a wheelchair.

My family and I went to Studio West an made paperweights. The experience was like no other! Instead of just sitting and watching someone make glass they give you a hands on experience.

Our Glassblowing expert and teacher was a young man named Kyle, he was so patient and kind and a very good teacher. We liked it so much, we both would do it again if we are ever in the... More

We had a blast today learning how to make glass paperweights. Our instructor, Kyle, was very knowledgeable, informative and patient, which made the class enjoyable. We cannot wait to pick up our "masterpieces" next week and to take another class later this summer!!!! We highly recommend this to anyone who is curious about glass blowing or would like to learn...
