Manchester Hot Glass is a glass blowing studio & gallery in Manchester, Vermont. Check out our popular Glassblowing 101 class and learn the craft yourself!Having read a few not so hot reviews I would like to add that Glass making is not a slow process. We work with HOT Glass and to do so you need to keep moving. I dont rush people, I work at a pace that is nessassary to make quality glass.

Our finished projects were beautiful works of art and everyone was happy with them. Andrew's shop is filled with so many beautiful pieces, he is definitely a master... More

A favorite destination for all of our out of state guests for glass blowing classes -- they have fun, learn something about glass blowing, work directly with Andrew the artist -- we decided to look at Andrew's store for a unique gift to take to friends in Asia. Hit the jackpot!!! There are so many things to choose from! So... More

Andrew and Molly were great. They both had a great sense of humor the entire time and explain the process to glass blowing with clarity. Hoping to go back again when to try the 2 hour session

My husband and I really enjoyed our experience there. We made 4 pieces each over a 2-hour lesson, and Andrew was super helpful and nice. And safe - always a plus! As was Molly. There are beautiful pieces for sale there, also. Definitely sign up if you want something a little different. We hiked in the mountains, golfed and shopped,... More

My husband and I took a 3 hour private class and had such a fun time with Andrew. He helped us tackle pretty complicated glass pieces in our first experience by helping out as much or as little as our natural skill allowed. When we were more terrified, he took over and where we could handle it (let's be honest,... More

This was our second time there. I came all the way up from Texas to go there. The first time we just looked around, bought a couple things and Andrew showed us the hot room (for lack of a better term). This time we went for making paper weights. While he was joking and making us laugh the whole time,... More

While not exactly on the beaten path, it is well worth looking for. Such an interesting experience to blow glass and owner, Andrew Weill is endlessly patient in assisting you. Just beautiful items to purchase for your home or as gifts. Highly recommend if you're in Manchester, VT

I have bought several items here. All beautiful. The classes , for glass blowing , are really good. The owner is wonderful teaching children to make glass items. My grand daughters loved the experience and what they made. Glass repairs are done. One can design their own items with the help of the owner.

Beautiful pieces in the shop and Andrew will make most any custom piece for you.He will also teach you the art and you can watch him create if you like. A true artist.

Beautifully formed glass creations and the clever banter of the artist/ owner (a former New Jersey guy) make this shop a great place to visit. We plan to visit again to take a class!
