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.

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.

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!

We did the 2 hour class on our honeymoon and made 4 pieces each. We love our pieces and it was great experience and I would recommend it to anyone. You do have to work fast and safely ... come on it is Hot glass! Be prepared to be teased a little, follow orders and you will end up with... More

We were looking for something to do in Manchester, other than shopping. I hit upon this place, and immediately mapped out the location. Glad we went. Not only did we see some pretty awesome glass pieces, but the biggest treat of all, was getting to watch a class of 5 youngsters making their own glass pieces. Each piece was different... More

This was such a fantastic, fun, educational, and mind "blowing" experience! The owner is as kind, humorous, and informative as it gets. My wife and I have never done anything like this before and when we walked out we both said to each other "that was awesome"! Thanks for the bowl, carafe, and one hell of a time! Everyone should...
