I've never seen first hand how glass art is made. Olya's studio gave me the opportunity to see it live. Great out of the box experience.

We scheduled a private session for two couples while on vacation in Ella Valley Israel. Olya is a talented artist, the workshop was fascinating and the four of us blown glasses and plates, which after two days were sent to our hotel.
Highly recommended!!

We were two young boys and 2 seniors at this workshop today. Olya is patient and you really have the opportunity to learn how to make glass pieces. She has many safety measures and the experience is very exciting. You get to pick the colors you want and learn how to shape your piece.

One of our friends was getting married and asked to participate in a glass-blowing session as part of his stag-party. Olya's studio stood out as the best option and Olya herself was very friendly and informative over the phone.
The studio offered 3 different levels of participation - demonstration only, part participation and full participation. The more involved the level, the more you got to actually do yourself and the more complex the final product (demo only is at Olya's choice, part participation lets you make a paper weight and full participation lets you end up with a glass, vase or bowl). The higher the level, the longer it takes and the more it costs, but even so prices were reasonable.
We were 6 guys in total and each of us took his turn in blowing the glass, turning it and working it with tools and the furnace, with Olya's direction and guidance. The whole experience took about 4 hours from start to finish, including safety instructions. The final products can be shipped (for extra cost) withing one day (you cannot take them home with you immediately as they need to temper in a secondary oven overnight).
This was a very fun activity and quite different from what you normally get to see and do. Olya was very informative and we all very much enjoyed our day there. The groom was elated :)
So, if you're into this sort of activity, and even if you're not, I very much recommend Olya's studio.

Cool place to visit and show how glass is molded and shaped.children especially are fasinated by the hot glass Olya has a show/demo format that is free for children (20 nis per person). And after that you can mold your own paper weight with your own uniqe design for only 120 nis. At the place you can also drink a cold beer from local botique brewerys. Realy worth a visit.

We've been to Oly'as studio as our team's fun activity, and is was amazing.

Olya directed us all in creating simple glass objects, such as glass cups, bowls, and my own awesome ashtray. While one of us worked, the rest were busy helping by blowing, heating or just planning their creation, so we were active the whole time.

Olya's studio is large, air conditined, and we'll furnished, but maintains the cosy feeling of a home studio.

All in all, we had a very enjoyable time.
