  1. My son and I took an evening class. Not knowing what to expect I was a bit nervous but Tom was fantastic. He was very funny and personable. The entire process was amazing! We are already planning our next glass project. I would highly recommend anyone to try this!

  2. We had a great time and we had a lot of fun. Thomas was entertaining and informative. Totally recommend this experience.

  3. My husband did a workshop with Thomas. It was such a fun evening! I even got to tag along and take pictures. Thomas did a great job explaining everything. I would highly recommend taking a class!!

  4. This was a very fun experience. Thomas helped out as much as he needed to make sure our pieces turned out well, but ensured that it was a true hands-on experience. We can’t wait to pick up our pieces this morning, and we’d highly recommend it.

  5. I have been gifted some of Tom’s work. It is absolutely amazing! A very unique gift for that special someone. Among the very different things that Tom can make, I’m extra impressed with his memorials. Check them out for a love one – even a pet.
    I’d love to get to Florida to take a class, just for the fun of it!

  6. I’ve always loved watching people work with glass so I had to give it a try. Thomas was so accommodating and knowledgeable about the process. It was fun and creative and something unique. Highly recommend it.

  7. We just did it tonight before our day at universal tomorrow! Fun easy and interesting!!! Good restaurants nearby too!!

  8. My 2 high school best friends & I met up in Orlando to celebrate our 50th birthdays and thought it would be fun to do a glass blowing class while we were there — and I have to say it was even more fun than we could’ve expected! We met Thomas over at the Factur studio and he made the class SO MUCH FUN!! We laughed a ton, sweated a bit (Sept in Orlando & hot kilns = super warm despite the big fans) and we got to take home amazing glass flowers that we designed and created ourselves (with a lot of help from Glass Master Thomas, of course!). Since we didn’t have time to pick up our flowers before we had to fly out, Thomas was kind enough to offer to ship them to us (which it seemed like he had maybe not done before), so we were very thankful that he could be so flexible. Have I mentioned what a hoot Thomas is??? He really made this a super fun and memorable experience as part of our big 5-0’s!! All 3 of us would highly recommend this for a fun night out!!

  9. Had a great time learning about the art of blowing glass. Fun to do with a group of friends or on a date night. Lots of good restaurants and bars within walking distance. And in the end you have a beautiful piece of art to keep.
    Thanks, Tom! Will definitely be back to try my hand at something new.

  10. Our team from work went to an afternoon class with Thomas and had a great time!! David (Thomas’ helper) worked to make sure we had a wonderful experience. I enjoyed making a flower and watching the others make their designs. I will be taking my family and going back soon!!

  11. We had a team outing consisting of a group of 6. Thomas took his time with each of us to ensure we understood the process and worked in a safe way and was very entertaining through the process. Each one of us was able to make a customized piece, flower or ornament, we are proud of. The outing was a lot of fun and I know that several of us will be back with other friends or family members to make another piece.

  12. My husband and I took an evening class with Tom and it was an amazing night! First, the experience of learning what the trade is all about was not only fascinating but gave me a new respect for both the process and finesse that is involved in creating glass work. Tom’s personality and teaching style made our evening a lot of fun and we felt immediately comfortable in an otherwise unfamiliar setting. We each made a stemless wine glass that I was honestly expecting to be terrible because it was made by me, but Tom was focused on each of our glasses as if it were his own. He knew what to ask to determine our style preferences and was educated in his suggestions to make our ideas better. He was there every step of the way to ensure we had a beautiful and functional piece that we would be proud to take home with us and would cherish forever…. and we do! I am absolutely giddy, and will definitely find a way to book another session to learn more from him.
