When it comes to glass, there is just no better place in the world than Murano, an island in the Venetian lagoon that has been creating extraordinary works of glass for many centuries.

Located in a quiet place on Murano, away from the crowded touristic areas of the island, you will enjoy a 2 hour private glass making workshop. The workshop itself is a small, quaint little atelier, with a charm far superior than the all too busy giant "tourist trap" glass factories of the island. There, you will meet your private expert glass maker.

After a few instructions and safety tips, it will be your turn to create colorful glass tiles. You can do what you want, but for a perfect Venetian souvenir, you might want to recreate an iconic Venetian element such as St. Mark’s Campanile or a winged lion! During this workshop, our expert glass maker will teach you all the techniques, but will also perform a demonstration of glass blowing. You will even get a chance to experience first hand what glass blowing is all about.

Because glass has to cook for at least 24 hours, we will deliver your creations to your hotel in Venice on the next day. Shipment directly to your home town can also be arranged with an additional cost.

Become a Glass Artist in Murano is a perfect way for you and your children to dive into the history and secrets of this traditional Murano craft.

A Truly Engaging Experience

By: Anna

Family Twist provided several kid-friendly tours on our trip to Paris and London. The guides were knowledgeable and related easily to our children. We were all thoroughly engaged because of the professional and friendly guides. The little gifts for the children were a sweet perk.

Family Twist Review

Our experience with Family Twist was wonderful. Our main interaction was with two of their employees, Susanna and Camille. They were prompt, courteous and extremely helpful. One our most recent trip to Paris, Family Twist engaged two guides for us. Each of them was perfect in their own way. For the historic part of the itinerary, we had Katia. She was very knowledgeable and was able to engage a 9 year old for long periods of time. She has great games for my child that entertained him and educated him at the same time. The other guide, Laurenie, is a chocolate expert who gave us a fantastic walking chocolate tour of Paris.
