We arrived in Murano with the #4 water bus, got off at the "Faro" stop and after a short (3 min) walk along the canal, arrived at this welcoming glass studio and gallery. We were let in to the studio for a demonstration of how the glass is worked to produce art pieces (for a small fee of 2 euros). The staff in the gallery was helpful and willing to explain where every piece was from. We would definitely recommend a visit to anyone staying in Venice and looking for an experience at a real Murano glass studio!

We were looking for a glass blowing factory with a demonstration. We were wandering along the fondamenta when we saw a sign for a "fornace".

I went inside the glass shop and the people inside did not look like the evil hard sell type you see elsewhere.

The very nice older gentleman said it was 2 euros per person. We went back to the fornace and the fellow make both a little vase and a prancing horse. Fascinating.

I asked afterwards if we could buy either. They said no. Made of a type of glass that will fail apart into a "thousand pieces" after a day. Just a demo.

Prices in the shop were very reasonable. I bought a prancing horse like the one the fellow made for only 10 euros.

I highly recommend.

Wandered in by chance and they were just starting a glass blowing demonstration.
Very interesting to watch with commentary by a guide in several languages .
Afterwards we went into the shop area, there was no pressure to purchase anything and the staff were cheerful and happy to answer any questions we had.
I would recommend this shop/ foundry
