Our family of four (mom and dad and two college kids) really enjoyed this class at Conrad's home studio. Conrad was fun and funny and a great teacher. He put us at ease while teaching us a great deal about glass and glass blowing. We love our ornaments. DEFINITELY recommend this!

An amazing class at the Ritz-Carlton, fun activity. Conrad was professional and patient with beginners. We made a glass ornament and bowl. Loved our finished product.

What a fantastic opportunity to meet him, much less experience glass blowing with him! The session is a great experience and you'll wind up... More

My husband and I took the glassblowing class at Conrad's house. He is professional, talented and makes the class fun. We each made a Christmas ornament and learned all about glassblowing. We would recommend taking the class in his home, as he can spend more time and his studio is there.

My parents and I did the glass blowing class at the Ritz Carlton. We had a really fun time! Conrad is very patient and really has it down when explaining how to do everything. We were all very relaxed the whole time and never felt pressured. He was very encouraging and funny. Highly recommend it.

Loved the idea of taking this class but was a bit disappointed. A friend and I signed up for the class. Conrad is fun, professional and knowledgeable but the entire time I was actively involved was about 15 mins. This is much more a group activity. It is important to understand that it is an activity that requires a certain... More

Conrad will make you feel very comfortable from the moment you get out of your car till you get back in it. He is so informative about the whole process, and always considered safety first. It was awesome to learn something that you can create and be so proud that you actually had your hands in its creation. It was... More

I have lived in Naples for almost 17 years and host visitors often. I had been running out of ideas for things to do, when one of my visitors stumbled upon this wonderful activity. We opted for the private lesson. Upon arrival at Conrad's home, we were greeted by a charming, friendly and funny man - Conrad!! Three of us... More

From the moment Conrad greeted us in the driveway to saying goodbye, this was a wonderful workshop. Conrad is a great teacher, made the experience fun, was extremely careful with safety, and was so well organized. His attention to detail and to the artistic parts of the glass-blowing process went a long way to making this a truly special artistic... More
