You know how hard we work at Boston Stone Restoration, but we like to play sometimes too! This past weekend Paul and I went to Manchester, VT to take in a little foliage, eat some cheddar cheese and just enjoy a little time away.  But the main reason we chose Manchester was to visit Manchester Hot Glass, a glassblowing studio where we took a private lesson.  Owner Andrew Weill was so much fun to hang out with and we hit it off right away.

We learned a little about his craft and told  him a little bit about ours.  While we were chatting we got to make two customized pieces.  Paul made a vase and I made a wavy bowl. We picked the colors and style with a little help from Andrew.  We literally got to blow off some steam and the end result was a wonderful experience and two unique homemade pieces to remember our trip by.

If you ever find yourself in Manchester, I highly recommend you stop by. Call in advance to schedule your  class!

And remember, support your local small businesses!
