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.

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!

This place is amazing. We were a little worried about bringing our 8 and 10 year-olds to the glassblowing class--like most kids, they can get a little rambunctious. We needn't have worried--the proprietor is totally in command of his shop, and the whole class went...More

Awesome and fun experience!! So much nicer to have an original piece of art than a silly t shirt as a souvenir from our weekend. Andrew was fun and kept us entertained! His crew were equally amusing and it was money well spent! Highly recommend!
