The master artisan will help you, step by step, during the whole experience to make you create your personal and inimitable glass masterpiece that, at the end, you will bring it at home as a special souvenir.
In the world of the glass craftsmanship, Massimiliano Caldarone is one of the most famous and respected venetian artists, who shows its artworks in Italian and international art exhibitions. He uses modern glass sculpture using the traditional Murano technicians.

My husband and 2 daughters had a wonderful experience and learned theory, Massimiliano taught us theory, demonstrated and we made our own necklace.

My wife and 14 year old granddaughter participated in this activity while I observed and took photos. We had looked for a glassblowing class that would be more than just a demonstration preceding a sales pitch for expensive glassware, and this fit perfectly. Massimiliano was slow and patient in his demonstrations and teaching, helping each of them make a beautiful pendant for a necklace, but letting them chose colors and put their own touches on the jewelry. He was very emphatic about safety rules, as he should be, with the potential dangers in this process. He did not even suggest that we buy some of his work, although we did purchase several Christmas ornaments, because we wanted something to remember this great experience.

We got the chance to make a pendant for a necklace, we were shown how to make it and given step by step instructions on how to do this. It is a fine art and I felt relaxed and not rushed, but instead we were welcomed and patience over our varying abilities by the teacher allowed us to both make a pendant successfully.
