Hands-down, the glass bead making workshop was my favourite thing that I did in Aruba. Despite having never made anything out of glass before, I signed up because it sounded fun and different. With Marian's excellent and patient guidance, I was able to create my own unique bracelet in only three hours! The location of Terrafuse (Aruba Glass Ceramics) is... More

We were on a Wix Tour with 20 total. Marian met us at the tour bus door and individually shook (firmly) our hand. We watched her husband Ciro form glass bird wine-stoppers and then toured their beautiful gardens chickens and all. I purchased a beautiful necklace for a friend which was similar to what Marian was wearing. The glass balls... More

When we went they had melted bottles and very few things to see. Most were not artsy and were overpriced. Selection was tiny.

Very nice place to have a glass bead workshop or a tour to Arubaglass atelier. Nice and friendly owners. Marian gives the workshop with a lot of passion. Ciro and Marian do the tour with lots of information, knowledge. You really feel welcome. It is an authentic place at the happy Island! You should also visit Arubaglass Ceramics at Turibana... More

Visited Marian's house and workshops as part of a 'Made in Aruba' tour through Wix Tours booked through Viator - highly recommend this trip. Marian was so warm, welcoming, a mind of information and was happy to welcome us to look around her workshops & her back garden. Her husband had gone back to Holland to have a sculpture dipped...

Marian brought amazing depth and energy to this class. Her knowledge of art and skilled craftsmanship elevated this workshop to an entirely different level. By the time myself and my classmate left, we had beautiful bracelets in hand and memories to last a life time. I would spend this $85 over and over again! Make sure that you do not... More

Thankyou so much Marian! We totally lost ourselves in this wonderful experience. Glass bead making in a three hour session with a very knowledgeable, happy lady who obviously adores her work. We lost track of time as we were so caught up in what we were doing. Will certainly be having a return visit should we be fortunate enough to... More
