Check out our popular Glassblowing 101 class and learn the craft yourself!Having read a few not so hot reviews I would like to add that Glass making is not a slow process. We work with HOT Glass and to do so you need to keep moving. I dont rush people, I work at a pace that is nessassary to make quality glass. « less

We took the 2 hour private class for 2. We got to make 4 pieces each in time frame. There is a lot of one way communication. You can only work with hot glass for a short period of time! So if you can't multi task or you have the iq of a pumpkin..don't go! If you love glass you... More

Andrew's dry wit was only outdone by his expertise. His assistant, Mike was super helpful - these guys are a great team offering a very unique experience. We made vases, rocks glasses, beer pints, and pitchers....they shipped it all home for us. Very fun experience! Try it!

After reading others' reviews of Hot Glass, how could we resist this place when we visited Manchester for school vacation week?! Both Andrew and Molly were unbelievably patient with the 4 of us while walking us through the equipment, the process and finally our own projects. We had a few days to figure out what we wanted to make leading... More

My husband, mother in law and sister in law all made a stunning piece of glass with Andrew. It was a lot of fun and well worth paying a little extra to make something other than a paperweight. I made a beautiful carafe which I have thoroughly enjoyed using at home. Andrew is a funny guy who keeps you entertained... More

Once in a lifetime experience!! Took the two hour class with Andrew and Molly- they are amazing, knowledgeable, and gracious - several times I almost "lost" the piece I was working on, and they stepped right in and saved the day. Totally worth your time and cost of class - you'll be glad you did! Thank you Andrew and Molly... More

On an anniversary trip, the Concierge recommended we try glass blowing at Manchester Hot Glass. We had so much fun! We booked the extended private class and was able to make 4 items each. My husband and I each made 2 paperweights, a glass and then an object of choice. I made a vase and my husband made a pitcher.... More

We have been doing an annual weekend warriors trip to Bromley and always make time for a glass blowing experience here. You will be hooked! The adults and kids love it. Must go.

This is a must stop if you want to spend an hour or so with a knowledgeable, fun, good guy Andrew Weill. His already made products are excellent but the hands on studio work is where the fun truly begins. He will spend the time to explain the process, share local flare, and make you laugh all the while you... More

My husband and I just did a two hour private class. It was a fantastic experience and we plan on traveling back to Vermont (we are from the buffalo ny area) just so we can work with Andrew again. If u are anywhere in the area of Manchester you should absolutely take a class at his studio...or at the very... More

I’ve been to Manchester Hot Glass on several occasions. At my first visit I was so impressed with the quality of the pieces for sale in the shop. I then found out that there was an opportunity to actually be apart of the creative process and make my own glass creations. On my next visit a friend and I took... More
