Enjoy Murano glass beads!

This journey will give you the opportunity to get in touch with the famous Murano glass and enjoy the beauty of this material. It will be one of the most unforgettable experiences in your life, where you will have the opportunity to appreciate the transformation of the glass thanks to the fire. 

This technique is completely unique because you can’t find it in any part of the world, just here in Murano island. It’s really important to keep a traditional way to treat glass alive. 

Colors will be mixed together and will come alive directly in your hands. Monica will show you the technique and then you will try on your own! Of course, this could also be a perfect gift for a beloved person.

One the other hand, you can also bring beads with you as soon as you have finished making them, or they can be sent at your address.  

Lampworking technique in a couple of hours

This lesson is suitable for everyone. Even children from 10 years old are welcomed to try this experience (an adult is required during the whole experience).

The lesson is perfect to create your own beads, and if you take the opportunity to spend more than one hour, you could even create more beads! 

What we will recommend is to have the chance to take part of 8 hours course, which includes creation and monitoring (in two successive days). 

Of course in the first stage you will create your own bead and then your parure. 

You shouldn’t pass up the opportunity to dedicate yourself to lampwork more days, and create more elements. If you need more information about the availability of multi-hour courses, do not hesitate to contact us! 

Courses can be booked all year round from monday to sunday.

Discover Murano island from another point of view!

Monica’s atelier is walking distance 5 minutes far from the “Murano Faro” Actv stop. This is reachable from the train station Venezia Santa Lucia, catching the ferry line n. 4.14.2, or n. 4.2 from Fondamenta Nuove. You can consult timetables on the ACTV website. 

Together with Murano artisans you will be transported to another world: you will be able to enjoy the island as a main character and get in touch with people who live in this magical place everyday. 

Moreover, you can visit the famous Murano Glass Museum and appreciate its masterpieces.

If you are a person who is into jewelry, with Monica is it possible to take a jewelry monitoring class. Or you could even see how glass vases are created, we will recommend a visit to the glass furnace where the glass techniques will be explained to you.
