Hearing your journey of how you started in glassblowing to where you are now was so interesting. You explained the process and had us practice before making our glass bowls. You set us up for an amazing and successful experience! We plan on returning! Also, loved the easy pickup next day.

Alejandro is the best!!! He took the time to explain the history of glass blowing. It's by far is one of my favorite things to do when visiting Euegne. He even brought us snacks from his house. He honestly was amazing and it felt like he was part of our family. He even took the time out to let us play with his billy goats he has on the property. We will be back every year!!

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.

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.

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!

We went to studio West with friends. We had varying degrees of artistic talent. Ciara’s super power is being able to give just the right amount of guidance and instruction for the individual she’s working with while keeping her comments relevant and interesting for the group.

We came up on vacation and found this to have some fun and kill some time. It turned out as an awesome experience!

I was worried we either wouldn't be hands on enough that I would feel as if I did not make anything or that we would have too much freedom and I would have a kindergarten art project on my hands. Neither of these options were the case for anyone I went with. It was a perfect level of assistance for everyone and we made some awesome ornaments and bowls.

I would personally recommend this to anyone travelling to the Eugene area. This was an experience I will not forget and every time we hang our ornaments on the tree I will remember what went into them. Thank you Ciara!

I did a galaxy memorial globe, I was really worried I would not be able to do it, it’s extremely personal. I am glad I did it. I wanted to be part of the process, and it made it even more special. This studio made perfect for me, was patient and very kind.
