This was a great way to spend time with family during the Thanksgiving holiday in St Petersburg. We found a Groupon and the 4 of us worked side by side over the torches to create martini, beer, and wine glasses. The beginner class lasts for about one hour. We were the only students and both instructors were very close by... More

I have taken a lot of glass classes and this was a bit disappointing. The instructors should take some time to show students some completed wine glasses before starting and explain a bit more about the color combinations and how to design a stem. Not once did they speak of the difference between transparent or opaque colors. The colors to... More

Togetherness of mind and body is what you get when you work on the glass to try to squeeze, pull, twist, squish and cajole the molten glass until it resembles something like a colorful wine glass stem. My fiancé and I had a great time with the Zen of glass work. Once you are done, the experts persuade it onto... More

Zen Glass Studio is a nice little studio. This studio also has a commercial side which is used to support the art. There was a small gallery with some traditional pieces and pieces more on the dark scifi and insect side. Would recommend a stop here if you are a supporter of the arts as small studios can use the... More

Wow we had such a blast!! Had a groupon to make a wine glass. You're really just making the stem. Very cool process. We went on a Saturday and you have to leave your glass overnight but they're closed Sunday. The owner gave me his personal cell number to call and then meet up on Sunday special for us since...

A great experience and the artist studio is low key no pressure. Some amazing pieces for sale. The instructors were great teachers and certainly made it fun informative for all. A+

My wife and I did the MYO ornament workshop with Christian. The whole process took about an hour to do but it was a blast. Definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to try something new and have a unique piece of art for yourself. Christian was a great guy, very knowledgeable and helpful. We plan to go back and make...

The cool fun people guide you through every step of the process. Although I do have to say it is a "concentrating" type of activity. They make the glass for wine and foot while you make the colorful stem. I only wish you could watch a little more of how the glass was made before you start making the stem... More

We did a "make your own wine glass" workshop for my sister's birthday...with zero practical experience and not much intrinsic talent. Both of our glasses turned out beautifully! The glass blowing expert makes the bowl and foot of the glass while you customize the stem after a brief introduction. We had a great time and would definitely recommend it to... More
