Overview

Manchester Hot Glass is a glass blowing studio & gallery in Manchester, Vermont. Check out our popular Glassblowing 101 class and learn the craft yourself!Having read a few not so hot reviews I would like to add that Glass making is not a slow process. We work with HOT Glass and to do so you need to keep moving. I dont rush people, I work at a pace that is nessassary to make quality glass.

Making a glass bowl or drinking glass is just part of what makes this place special. We took home two magnificent pieces. But making them with Andrew is just plain fun. He's got a NY wise guy sense of humor. we're from NY so we...More

Everyone had a great time, even the 4 & 6 year olds made beautiful paperweights!! All the adults had fun picking out what pieces they would do & which colors appealed to their creative side. Their assistant was super helpful!
