I must visit on your trip to Frisco or Summit County. See the secret art of glassblowing revealed. Make sure to bring your camera!

“Great experience outside of Murano Italy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

My friend saw an advertisement for glass blowing demonstrations at the Gathering House Studio in Frisco Colorado, so we thought this would be something unique to do during our girls weekend. We were able to have "front row" experience with John, where he was very gracious in answering our questions and providing commentary during each step of the process.
I wanted to design my own wine goblets, which then morphed into me physically getting to assist in making one. This experience at the Gathering House was well above the tourist glass blowing experience I had in Murano Italy.

“Inviting, friendly and beautiful.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

The Gatherhouse glass studio is one of the gems of Frisco. The striking hand blown glass in the window caught my eye and drew me into the studio. I had no idea that owner/master glass blower, John Hudnut, would invite me to not only witness the creation of a spectacular glass piece, but also participate in the process! John's passion for his art is contagious and I learned a tremendous amount about glass blowing in just a few hours at the Gatherhouse. Thank you so much John and the Gatherhouse for such a beautiful, memorable experience.

“Host was strange”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

I think he was hitting on my 60 year old mom the entire time. Also, he was opening kilns right before us. Which normally would be cool, but I was standing so close, that I felt that my hair was singed off when he opened it without warning. Also, we didn't see any glass blowing when he inviting us in....strange.

“Outstanding experience with a master glass artist”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

This was my second class with John, the owner and master glass artist of Gatherhouse. After my first class last summer, an afternoon with John was number one on my list of things to do when returning to Frisco this summer. John helps you design your own piece, teaches you about the process of glass blowing and you get to assist in creating your own piece of glass art. Last summer I made a vase, this summer a plate. It is truly amazing to see John at work.
