Murano glassworking is one of the most important Italian crafts. Our Murano glassworking course in Venice is held in an authentic glass workshop located in the historical centre of Venice.

The studio is not far from the Rialto Bridge, in the heart of Venice, so you will not need to rely on public transportation.

The artisan organizes Murano glass courses for beginners, intermediate and advanced levels.

The basic course is perfect if you wish to start learning the processing of glass beads with the lampworking technique. The advanced course is targeted to professionals who want to improve shapes and techniques in lampworking. In this last case, a previous work experience is required to attend the course.

The artisan also offers glass bead lessons. A very special course option for jewellery designers or jewellery makers who plan to make their own glass jewels.

Courses are one to one or in small groups. The artisan workshop is equipped with five workstations, torches and tools. This will allow you to learn in a safe location.

The cost of the course includes materials, tools and special protective glasses.

  1. Debra

    Studiainitalia was so organized and supportive. They helped me book an amazing glass work experience. They were attentive, answered all my questions and even checked on my progress. I highly recommend their services.

  2. Debra Leonardini

    This course was amazing. Mauro is a patient, professional teacher with a wealth of knowledge and the ability to share it in an informative and enjoyable way. I throughly enjoyed my time and only regret not having booked more. This was a wonderful Venice experience.

  3. Meredith

    The workshop was awesome! We are so happy that we were able to do this. Our only regret is not booking more time! Thank you so much for organizing this.

    We highly recommend Mauro’s class. Our six-hour class with Mauro was simply amazing. We are both experienced educators ourselves, and it was clear from the outset that Mauro is a master teacher. Mauro’s wealth of knowledge combined with his ability to clearly and effectively teach what he knows — along with his love and enthusiasm for lampworking — made the course well worth the time and price. He’s also a lot of fun to spend time with — great sense of humor. He helped us develop a solid foundation for lampworking while also showing us where our beginning skills can go with practice. It was a transformative experience for us, and we plan to continue learning from Mauro in the future as we develop our lampworking skills. Federica was super helpful in arranging the class for us, especially at the last minute. She also checked in regularly to make sure we had accommodations, directions, and that we were enjoying the class. We feel so lucky to have found Mauro and StudiainItalia!
