    Unique and Memorable
    Such a unique and creative experience! Instructor was fantastic, enjoyed watching the demonstration first and then the personalized one-on-one guidance. Setup was also very safe. Highly recommend if you want to try something new and artistic!

    fun and unique experience + beautiful art
    Ciara did an awesome job teaching us and keeping everyone safe. We had a great time! The paperweights were especially beautiful and my 16 YO was impressed by how much she got to do while making one. Unforgettable experience, don't hesitate to sign up!

    Awesome Experience
    This was FANTASTIC! We loved it. One quick catch, you have to come back the next day to pick up your piece after it has cooled properly so leave time for that. We both wished that we had time to go back and make another piece. If I lived here I would be there a lot. Very informative, Ciara made sure everything was very safe. We got to pick out the colors for the glass that we wanted. I even got to add an adaptation to mine to make it even cooler. I would suggest that if you have long hair secure it out of the way. That was very helpful to me. The only bad thing I have is we were so busy enjoying ourselves we forgot to take pictures.

    Family fun
    We’ve been visiting Eugene for several summers and I was looking for something new to do. My daughters (ages 10 and 13) each made a bowl with Ciara. She demonstrated the whole process and then supervised each step of the way. It was a great introduction to the art and we have a beautiful souvenir from our visit. I would recommend for locals and visitors alike!

    Best experience ever....they are such wonderful teachers. They are kind and caring and very knowledgeable.
    I absolutely had a blast doing this and learning all about glass blowing. They are patient and they help you every step of the way. You will not walk away with an ugly project. I was so worried about that. They also have many things to purchase for gifts from a local company. You will not regret taking few hours to enjoy some fun.

    Amazing experience with family - must do!
    This was an amazing experience for us and truly enjoyed it from start to finish. We had never blown glass before and wasn’t sure what to expect. Alejandro was great and so patient as he taught us! We laughed and really enjoyed the lesson and all the information he gave us during our experience. He’s very knowledgeable and made you feel very comfortable with that HOT glass :) loved his corgi dog too, she’s adorable if you see her!

    5 star experience
    Always wanted to try glass blowing. And we did just that!! Wish we could be let try more steps. But it is still a 5-star experience. We made glass ornaments. Since we aren't local, nice lady mailed to us when she said she would. We were all so excited to receive our perfect products! As a bonus, the studio is on a cool location with vast land (is it a ranch?). We had to drive 1 hour back road to get there. Fun sighting.

    Wonderful experience, Ciara is great!
    The whole experience was fantastic. Ciara was excellent; fun, personable, and made the whole experience easy and enjoyable. My partner and I made an ornament each, and loved it. Ciara explained everything in detail and then walked us through the whole process. A great way to spend time doing something different.

    Worth it!
    The instructor was amazing! She was very thorough and fun. It was clear she knew what she was doing and made the experience memorable! We made ornaments and when we picked up they were cracked…disappointed this happened and we are trying to reach the studio to see what can be done. Went as a date day with my husband and it was totally worth it!

    Unique experience
    A unique experience led by knowledgeable and friendly staff. My eight year old was led through the process with patience and kindness. What a great opportunity to try something different. I love the added facts about glass they weave into the lesson.

Last Saturday we went to Studio West for a double session in the ornament-making class. Our instructor, Alejandro, was very helpful, guiding us throughout the whole process. He was very knowledgeable, super friendly, and very fun to hang out with!
We had a great time and we'd definitely recommend it as a fun, creative and educational activity :-)

We had an exceptional time - we selected a private class for a team building event and we are so glad we did. We loved our instructor - she made everyone comfortable, she was patient and informative and made sure we had a great time. Many options and color combinations to choose from! All of our pieces turned out so well. We had a blast!

The only thing we didn't realize ahead of time is that we wouldn't be leaving with our creations the same day (we had team members from out of town), so it did require another trip to the studio to pick them up the next day and we had to ship to the team members that were not local. But the items were available for pick up first thing, all wrapped in packing paper and bagged up for us.

Alejandro is the coolest, nicest guy! We had so much fun. The entire experience way exceeded my expectations.

I had done a glass blowing class once before in Seattle, and it was hard for a first timer. Not at all so with Alejandro! He makes it easy and does it right along with you start to finish. I appreciated that he took the time to explain the process, let us play with tools & glass samples first, demonstrated making a glass float, and even told us the history of glass blowing in Eugene (super interesting).

Beyond that, what made the whole experience even more amazing were the personal touches. Alejandro heard my niece say she was hungry, and he actually went into his kitchen and brought us back snacks! He let us meander his property a bit and pet his goats. The setting itself is beautiful and peaceful.

We for sure plan to return every year when my family visits! It’s a must on our to do list.

This was a bit of a last minute scheduling for us during a ten day family road trip. We are so glad that we including this event during our Eugene visit; we learned something new, had amazing teachers and unique glass pieces that will be a great memory of our trip. I recommend considering this opportunity when you are in Eugene.

We had an awesome time learning how to glassblow with Ciara! She was a great instructor who taught us how to make glass ornaments. They were ready to pick up the next day, and turned out beautifully. Would definitely recommend and go again!

I loved watching and learning the process and techniques for Glassblowing bubble ornaments and bowls. The teacher/owner made the class very engaging and ensured that the the student participation yielded a satisfactory result. The liquid to solid change of glass is really fascinating and the experience of the class is one you will remember for years to come. I would definitely do this again and recommend to others.:)

This was a great experience. They were supportive of all ages and abilities (had an 8yr old, 2 adults, elderly who uses a walker). Very patient and helpful. None of us in the group had done this before and they created an environment that made us feel like there was no way we couldn’t succeed. Very informative. Easy to talk to, creat ideas with. We plan to come back again. Highly recommend. We were also able to purchase items that they had made themselves.

The is an excellent family activity that is well worth the expense. Our grandchildren, 10 and 12 years old, were able to actively participate with owner Alehandro to create beautiful glass bowls. We all learned a lot about the glassblowing process. Family members could watch and take photos to preserve the memory. And, when we returned the next day to pick up the bowls, we were amazed with how beautiful the they turned out to be.
