If you like to try something different, fun and creative, glass-blowing with Setsuko at the Hunter would be the activity for you. It was very well organised and professional. Great sense of humor from the organiser's side put many smiles on our faces.

Setsuko and Yutaka were a wonderful delight to learn from. The glass blowing was an intense experience my wife and I won't soon forget. For those thinking the time allowed is too short I don't think I could have continued for long after. Glass blowing is exhausting! After the lesson I appreciated the beautiful works on display in the gallery... More

Fun, entertaining, creative, and overall a wonderful hands on learning experience. Setsuko and her husband are both truly beautiful people... More

Highly recommend this entertaining and creative experience. Setsuko and her husband guided us safely and skilfully through the process of creating a unique and lovely piece of glassware. It truly makes you appreciate the craftsmanship in the work she has displayed in her gallery. The lessons make a great gift or activity to do with a friend. MKM

Awesome can't even begin to describe the experience of receiving your very first glass blowing lesson at Ogishi Craft Centre! Such talented artists and teachers. My friend and I walked away not only a unique piece of art each that we had ourselves created but with a renewed appreciation for the work of Setsuko Ogishi. The process of learning was... More

This was a fantastic experience and one I will remember always, especially as I have the Glass bowl I made! Very professional and safe approach with lots of laughs along the way. My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Highly recommended.

Make sure you take many photos otherwise your family and... More

This was a fantastic 1 hour. Teachers were so wonderful and generous with their knowledge of this complex artwork. Through their passion, skills and enthusiasm they help us create a unique piece of artwork. Well worth the money paid when you have a piece of art and you see the amazing artworks in the gallery. Thank you Setsuko and Yutaka... More

This Ogishi experience was a lovely mother and daughter day out for us. We were delighted with the end results with two completely different master pieces. We were really impressed and delighted with the enthusiasm of Yutaka and Setsuko, it was as if we were there first students and they were out to impress us with this new skill. There... More
