TESTIMONIALS

What people say about us.

We had a great experience at Zen Glass! Josh was friendly and patient with us, talking us through the process. We can’t wait to go back! Highly recommend this as a fun activity, date night, birthday celebration, etc! We had no experience at all and we enjoyed ourselves!

Melinda Lloyd

My girlfriend and I went to one of their wineglass making classes and it was a blast. The instructors are very supportive and knowledgeable about their craft. I felt like the prices were fair and we did not feel rushed. Lots of positive reinforcement during the process, and they even offered to take some pictures of us while we were working which was really nice. We will definitely be returning.

Ashley Larson

To say Zen Glass and it’s crew are great is a disservice to them. You can feel and see the passion they have for this as soon as you get there. Austin, who was teaching/showing my wife and I how to do everything was amazing. The gallery and store are amazing. The talent to make the things they make with glass is insane. My wife and I can’t wait to come back to try something else. Even our son asked if he could take a class with us next time. The experience was unforgettable.

Michael Reed

if there were a way to give Zen glass 100 Stars yeah, that would be my rating. Everybody is very knowledgeable helpful, positive, accommodating, and encouraging. And it’s just so much fun! Love it!

The vibe you get from this place amazing. The people are all so welcoming. Great community and area.

From the moment I set foot in the hot shop I was treated like family and put at ease. Weirdie and Alex are 2 of the coolest human beings and made my wife and I feel like the glass was never unmanageable. My wife uses her wine glass all the time and I gave my pendant to my daughter who adores it.

The experience was so great in fact, I’ve signed up for beginner classes, bought my own gear and plan to keep coming back and doing this as a hobby.

Bring your kids, bring your significant others, bring your parents. Glass is fun to play with and it’s one of those things that’s easy to pick up and hard to put down! Zen Glass Studio is the place to make it happen. I am so glad I found them!

My wife and I participated in a pendant workshop on October 15, 2016 with instructor, Katy. It was fun to learn how glass pendants are made and to try to make a few pendants. We were able to practice with combining different colors of glass and also trying to make different shapes. Katy was great as an instructor! I have a lot of respect for the process of glass making.

Mark Lytle

This was such a GOOD time! Josh was a great instructor and was very supportive of the non-descript blobs that were made! After all, we ended up with cool wine glasses, tree ornaments, paperweight and an awesome charm…Thank you Zen Glass, we WILL be back!
