Although a little pricier than we thought, after creating our piece with the help of one of the artists, you can understand why. It is a lot of hot work. We had an experience of a life time with a beautiful fish to remember it by. Don't forget to tip your artist. Our person was

I signed up to make a fish at this glass blowing class. I forgot the young man's name that taught my lesson but he was awesome. He took the time to teach me what we were going to do. He helps you as much or as little as you'd like. I needed a lot of help. But I can say that I

What an amazing experience! Kevin was patient and guided us through the whole process, explaining things along the way. We created a fish. I liked how hands on it was and how involved we were in the process. Would definitely do it again!

My husband and myself took a glass blowing class. We had taken one somewhere else before but this one was way more hands on. We got to be involved in all the steps needed to make our pieces. Even got to personalize it somewhat. Our pieces were ready for pick up the next day.

I scheduled this "experience" at a shop in Whaler's Village in Lahaina. The location for the glass blowing was at a different location - industrial, hard to find and dirty. Once I arrived, the staff inside had a REAL ATTITUDE! They were pressuring me to purchase other pieces

Aloha, and thank you for your feedback. It was an honor to welcome you, and we are very sorry to hear about your disappointing experience. That is not how we do business or train our employees. Could you please send us an email at mail@ryanstaub.com and let us know more information about the staff you interacted with? We recently fired a new hire after behavior similar to this, and it would help us to ensure this does not happen again. Thank you very much—we look forward to hearing from you and hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back someday for an improved experience. Mahalo.
