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.

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!

Definitely cool! We had a great time. Don’t worry, Andrew won’t let you leave with a blob of glass. Andrew takes as good as he gives in the humor department.
