Fantastic experience!
Mar 2020 • Friends
We had a fantastic afternoon with David in his studio. Our group of 3 learned so much from David who patiently and thoroughly walked us through the glass blowing process along with the technical components. We highly recommend his studio and lessons.

Wedding glass ceremony success!!
Nov 2018
What a wonderful man and teacher! David helped us turn glass crystals from our wedding ceremony into a beautiful glass-blown vase that we’ll treasure forever. We had such a blast in his studio and appreciated his expertise, craftsmanship, and passion for teaching. We will be back!

Interesting and Unique Experience
Dec 2018 • Couples
My wife and I took the 1 hour glass blowing class with David, and had an absolute delight of a time! We created a few Christmas Ornaments and a wine glass which all came out quite beautifully, and David was very helpful and let us do the work after demonstrating, and also took back over for the final shaping of the items.

Cannot wait to do this again
Sep 2018 • Couples
Fascinating and really fun! David is a great craftsman and a skilled, inspiring teacher. The vases we created look professionally made—David made blowing glass accessible and enjoyable to first-timers like us. (And this won’t be our last time.)

After class, we drove into nearby Camden to shop and Belfast for lobster, then we stayed overnight in David’s beautiful, comfortable guest suite.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Thank you! Love that review. I’m so glad you two had such a good time. And thanks for the plug about my AirBnb. It has been working out very well. Stay here at the suite, go downstairs to try your hand at glassblowing, and then head out to enjoy the sites of Maine. I look forward to you both coming back here. All the best, David

Absolutely wonderful family experience!
Sep 2018 • Family
My family and I had a fantastic new experience glass blowing with the expert help from David! David was absolutely wonderful and accommodating. He shared his enthusiasm and passion for the pieces and helped us make some beautiful art as well as life long memories! I would definitely recommend this as a must have experience for anyone!

Thank you so much, Ashley. What is fun for me is that I enjoyed myself as much as you did. It is hard not to get mesmerized by glass. And I am very happy that this experience will contribute to your life-long memories. All the best, David

Glass blowing class
Sep 2018 • Family
We’ve visited the beautiful glass blowing studios of Murano, Italy, and admired the artistry of Chihuly in Seattle. Our family trip to Camden, ME drew us to try the class offering of David Jacobson in Montville, ME. The beautiful fall drive to his studio would be even more breathtaking in just a couple more weeks when more of the leaves turned color. His quaint, cheerful place displayed some of his works, which churned the creativity wheels of all of us!

David Jacobson is a patient, friendly instructor. He made all of us feel like glass blowing apprentices as we each created our own custom works of art! It was an extremely fun experience! Our family consisted of ages 21-86 (the “type of visit” didn’t include a family of all adults). Even our 86 year old grandfather enjoyed creating his art piece! This class would be enjoyable for responsible teens as well. We highly recommend this enjoyable experience!

Well, thank you so much for your kind words. It was great to work with all of you, and I had an excellent time. You were all fun to work with. I’m glad I made you feel comfortable. Glassblowing is so much fun, isn’t it. Oh, and your pieces came out beautifully. I’ll mail them Wednesday, like we discussed. Enjoy the rest of your trip.

Great experience with a patient teacher!
Aug 2018 • Couples
We lined up a class to learn about glass blowing with David, and it was the highlight of our trip to Maine! He was easy to communicate with beforehand, and he was waiting to meet us when we arrived. He has a beautiful studio to work in, and we were lucky it wasn’t so hot outside as working near the furnaces gets hot! He gave us great suggestions as we figured out what we wanted to make, and he was very encouraging throughout the whole process. Once our kids are a bit older, we will be back with them!

“The highlight of our trip.” It doesn’t get any better than that for me. Thank you so much, Megan. I had a great time time with both of you. And your pieces are on their way to you. I look forward to when your kids are older. It will be good to see all of you again. Enjoy the rest of your summer.

An awesome experience
Jun 2018 • Couples
David made this a highlight of our vacation. What a patient and amazing teacher he is. We made a set of Airstream blue glasses for our camper I was so excited about how they turned out. We had never tried this before and now I am already looking forward to returning next time we are in Maine. We loved every minute of this experience and if you have ever thought of trying this I would highly recommend David. Go ahead, you know you want to 😊. Thank you so much David, we appreciate you sharing your time and experience with us

Showed up for appointment that he forgot
Jun 2018 • Couples
Set up appointment for me and my husband to do a class with him a week in advance drove two hours to get to the appointment to find out he forgot it and couldn't do it. Did offer a free class if we come back for one of us but that wasn't happening as we had to drive to Vermont that evening. So we drove two hours out of our way to drive the two hours back to where we began then three to get to Vermont. I guess I should be happy with the drinking glasses he gave us. I felt this was so very unprofessional. I understand things happen and people forget but this was a professional who made the appointment and a big inconvenience for us.

I apologized before and I will do it again, really sorry that happened. This is the first time I have ever forgotten, not that that helps you. And, believe me, I would have been upset, too, if that happened to me. So, my offer stands for two free lessons for you if you are ever in this area again. Hope you take me up on the offer.
