Manchester Hot Glass is a glass blowing studio & gallery in Manchester, Vermont. 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.

I took my 12 year old daughter there to make her own paperweight! What an amazing experience as you can see from her expression!! The owner Andrew is quite a character-we really enjoyed meeting him. I will be returning next time I am in Vermont to take my own lesson!! If you are in Manchester, this is a must!!

And not only the glass. This is a MUST when visiting Manchester VT. Wife dragged me kicking and screaming. Crafts are not my thing. BUT this was exciting. You make your own stuff. OK you do have help but your in there blowing and turning and blowing. Wife made a vase (turned out excellent) I made a wavy bowl--it was... More

Visited Manchester Hot Glass so my husband could make a paperweight. He collects paperweights, and the opportunity to create his own with coaching and assistance by Andrew and Molly was a real treat for him. It turned out beautifully!

Last week my wife and I visited beautiful Manchester, Vermont. We arranged a number of activities including a visit to Manchester Hot Glass. As you approach the studio you cannot imagine the amazing pieces of art that are displayed inside. You open the door and your eyes go from one incredible piece of artwork to the next. Suddenly you know... More

I stopped at Manchester Hot Glass as I wanted to purchase something for my new home. My parents had been before and purchased several pieces and suggested this place. When we got there a woman was making her own paper weight. The instructor mentioned there was a spot open and I could make my own glass. For $50 you can... More

I meant to write this several months ago! Andrew and Molly were totally BOSS. My partner and I had gone to VT back in the fall. We talked to the concierge at our hotel and they recommended this place. Even though both my partner and I don't generally like to buy/acquire stuff we gave it a shot because the experience... More

Jean & I had a fantastic session with owner Andrew Weill and his assistant, Molly on 02/05/15. We were total novices when we first went in, working with our first "glob" of molten lava glass, but under Andrew's tutelage (complete with urgency, shouting, laughing and having fun), we learned how to blow glass paperweights, glasses and vases (all of which...

Beautiful glassware. Handmade pieces are really worth the investment -- but be ready to invest! Only Christmas ornaments were under $20.
