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

After a short cab ride from the cruise port, we spent the next few hours learning about glass making, and then we went on to make our own bracelet and keychain... thanks Marian for a wonderful afternoon...

I love being able to experience new things on a vacation. It's nice to meet locals and to do something you have not done before other than the typical vacation excursions. I took Marian's bead making class over the winter holidays and loved it! You spend a number of hours behind a torch melting various colors of glass rods to... More

There was a very nice male artist that was very helpful and great artist. The female was teaching a student but nowhere near as pleasant as he was. Go to studios if you want local art.

We were taken to Marian's traditional cunucu house by a local friend whose necklace with selfmade glass beads I had been admiring. She learnt the art of glass sculpting from Marian, who was so kind to show us her creations and where it al happens. A true artist who loves to share her passion for glass. I've been told that...
