Informative, Non-Pushy Glass factories -- Robert or Others

Do you have suggestions for glass factories either on Murano or San Marco (I know these will be ltd) that are informative, not pushy and sell their own work. We're more interested in learning the art than buying. If we purchase it would be small.

If you are interested in learning about glass then the Glass Musum on Murano should be your first place to visit. The Museo dell'Arte Vetrario at Fondamenta Giustinian 8 is easily reached by taking a Line 41/42 vaporetto to Murano and getting off at the Museo landing stage. It is then only about 150 yards to your right down the side of the canal. (It is, or was, closed on Wednesdays).

All the glass factories I have visited on Murano press you fairly hard to buy in their showrooms once you have seen the interesting part - the highly skilled glassblowers.
