Today my work partner in crime and I took our amazing customer service team for a class on pendant and bead making – they had so much fun! Josh & team were so patient with the 4 of us and really let us experiment and explore the artists inside. I was proud of both our girls – Karin and I need more practice heehee. This was 100% an awesome time and highly recommend it!!!
We had a wonderful experience! Austin was so helpful and fun to work with! It was truly a fun experience and will definitely come back to make more pieces!

Such a fun afternoon! Highly recommend!!
We had a great time! Josh was super helpful. He explained everything and let us have at it. When we needed help he was there and both our projects came out great. Will definitely be back and hope our kids can join us when they visit.
Absolutely awesome. So much fun and so friendly. A very unique experience that I would highly suggest for date day or a group of friends. One of the coolest activities in St Pete.
Excellent experience, it’s all about timing and patience…highly recommend it! Austin n Alex were great teachers.
Very cool experience in the wine glass class. Jash was amazing and very helpful in making the experience great. I will definitely be back!
So much fun! My friends and I did a wine glass class and it was great! They let us bring our own food and drinks! 🙂 Definitely going back! Ask for Katy!
My cousin Josh is amazing at glass work. Definitely hit him up! 🙂
I spent a few minutes with Josh telling him my background and what I wanted to get from the class. He took me through a few ‘basics’ and I was off and running. Fantastic experience and I look forward to coming back the next time I’m in town.
Best glass studio in St Pete
My husband has told every single person he’s spoken to since we left how amazing it this experience was! Josh, Austin and team make you feel right at home and let you create your very own masterpiece. We highly recommend!
Love these folks!
If you are looking for something unique and fun to do for a few hours this was a fun experience.
Would highly recommend.
This place is awesome. We did a great easy beginner project where we heated up some glass, added color to it, and shaped it how we wanted. The amazing staff there then turned our amorphous works of art into functional stemware. A very neat experience. I can’t recommend enough.
For two ladies with introverted testing anxiety the Beginner’s Pendant workshop was absolutely wonderful Austin was a great help, always full of bounce and positive encouragement! Thank you for helping our belated birthday celebration go so smoothly!
Great guys, made a memory in glass that will last forever.
My husband and I really enjoyed making wine glasses at Zen Studios. It was more than what I expected …so cool. So interesting to learn the process. The base and goblet were already made, we got to make the stem. Austin was a great teacher. Thanks so much!
My friend and I attended a class today. We had such a great time. David was an excellent teacher. He was very personable and made it so fun! We will definitely be back!
Extremely personable folks and very cool arts. Definitely recommend to stop by!
Best glass studio in Florida
I made 2 wine glasses. Austin was my instructor an he rocked it. Will be going back to do more.
Josh was amazing. very relatable and welcoming from the minute we got there. it was a surprise for me so kinda didn’t know what to do, but he explained and gave us examples and really made it a memory for us. looking forward to our next visit already.
Me an my wife had a blast!👍🏻

Josh is a fantastic instructor!!!!
I went today and had a private class with Josh!!!! And Josh was there all the way! I’m not sure I have enough talent to master this but it was an awesome experience and I may try to make a pendant before I leave!!! Thanks again for a great time…..
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.
Absolutely wonderful place to see and try something new! Our family of four had a great experience and would do it again in a heartbeat! My wife and I made wine glasses and our children made their own abstract art. We couldn’t have had a better time! Thank you Dave for an amazing afternoon! We will see you the next time we’re in Florida!
The best places in the state for classes, camaraderie, and overall good glass vibes. Knowledgeable, friendly staff and a plenty of bench space. They also have a wonderful gallery full of beautiful work from tons of artists. Zen Glass really is a jewel of Florida.
I had a great time with u guys!

There was a Groupon offered for a workshop that I took advantage of with my boyfriend. We came in to make a glass pendent. Josh was the artist that worked with us. He was very informative and also allowed for us to have space to work on our pendent. He intervened when he needed to and made the experience enjoyable. I am looking forward to coming back and learning more!
What a freaking blast! My mom bought this experience on Groupon for us (group of 4) and we had so much fun making the stems of our wine glasses! Austin was patient, super helpful, and did an excellent job not only explaining what we should be doing but also entertaining us. 10/10 would go again.
Great place to take a glass class and a great place to teach one. Some very kind professional people host a myriad of glass opportunities. I will be back!
We had an absolute blast! Austin was an incredible teacher so much so we went back for a second class to drive him nuts. We made several gorgeous pieces and no one got burned. Thanks again Austin you’re “AWSOME Austin!”

Josh is my wife’s cousin. Amazing man & an amazing artist.
Excellent customer service good-hearted people
So fun! Even I could make my own pendant😍
Veteran Night hands down always an amazing and relaxing time. Learn something new everytime. Truly thankful for this opportunity.
Did a class here for my birthday and it was so fun! The instructors explained how to do and were readily available to assist, but really let you get hands on. They even took pictures for us while we were making our wine glasses. Definitely a fun date night!
my wife and I had an excellent time creating our own wine glasses! I highly recommend attending one of their classes, great atmosphere with friendly down to earth people.

It was a wonderful experience that we be going back to make more.
As a person who binge watched “Blown Away” in a day, this was a must. Austin was our instructor and he was amazing. Giving us little pointers and helping when needed. We each made a wine glass. We even had enough extra time to do a pendent. It was as awesome as I could have hoped for!! I would recommend anyone and everyone to this class.
Very “cool” actually HOT!!!
Very fun experience. Definitely makes you appreciate the custom glassware you see.
GOOD AND BEAUTIFUL STUDIO…………..

Fantastic experience with Josh Poll. Would highly recommend it! Can’t wait to see my piece.
Such a great experience and would highly recommend! We did a wine glass making workshop and had a blast! Thought I’d be intimidated by working with a torch but Austin (one of the artists at the shop and the teacher for our workshop) made us feel super comfortable and made sure we were having fun the entire time! This is great activity for date night or even as a group event. We are most definitely going back! Thanks for the awesome time Austin!!!! 😁❤️
this place will literally changer your life for the better 🙂
My kids had lost their father a couple of years back. Josh at Zen Glass made a wonderful collection of custom glass figurines, incorporating their dad’s ashes. He was careful to send updates and make sure they were exactly as I wanted through the whole process. Josh is an amazing artist.
Had a great time with hubby and friends, thanks Austin!
Awesome Place,Great People, I totally enjoyed meeting everyone there.

The class was very interesting, and much harder than I expected! But our teacher was great and assisted us all the way. Definitely would do it again!
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.
We did the make your own wineglass class. So fun!
Everybody was so nice and helpful. Had a blast. Everybody should try this at least once!

My daughter had the BEST time during the 1 hour pendant making session! Austin was a fantastic teacher – very patient, encouraging and helpful. They have a gift shop if you’re looking for a unique gift. They have all the COVID safety measures in place, too. It’s a 2+ hour drive for us but very worth it and we’ll be back!

Had a great time celebrating my other sister birthday! I highly recommend it and appreciate all of the team. Great gift shop for a unique gift.
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!
Awesome workshop, Our instructor Austin was amazing
Best Groupon in the Bay Area

Highly reccomend this place. Our instructor Dave made it very fun and relaxed. He was very eager to help and answer all our question and gave us enough space to have fun and be silly while providing a safe environment.
This is an AWESOME place with AWESOME staff! Josh and the bearded guy really made my first glass blowing experience rewarding and incredibly fun!! It was me and a group of my friends and wow! These guys have real talent and are able to teach a group of newbies the basics of glass art.
This is great place to gain new skills AND have a great time! Make a date at Zen Glass Studio with your loved one, a girls night out, etc.

I’ve been taking the beginner glass blowing program for 5 weeks now and have to say is a great place to learn. Josh,Dave, Katie, and Kyle are super knowledgeable. I gotta say if you’ve ever had a interest in learning glass this is the place to go,very reasonably priced and they’re third Thursdays with free open torches front 7 to 11pm are a great way to spark your flame for this superior artform and top notch learning facility.
