I'd been to another glassblowing studio previously and not been happy with the results. At Tacoma Glassblowing Studio, the results were wonderful because the people really explained and assisted in order for everyone to be happy with what they were making.

I have no artistic talent but now I feel like I do! The staff is patient, helpful and fun. The environment is safe and you get to watch others at the same time.
