Glassblowing beginners class in Murano

Event organised by Wave Murano Glass

In this experience we will show you what a real glass factory looks and feels like, understand how glass works, and watch real Murano Glass Masters while they blow it. The tour has three parts:
- The batch room: in here sand and other oxides are mixed carefully to create what will melt into glass once charged into a 1400°C furnace.
- The hotshop: you will learn about the melting process, from chemical mix to liquid glass, how all furnaces work and an overview of all tools we use.
- The coldshop: you will see all machines used to carve, drill, etch, cut, flatten, and polish glass.
We ask guests to arrive 5 minutes in advance to have enough time to check in. From Venice, depending on where you are, it might take even 50 minutes to get to Murano, so plan accordingly
