My husband and had the most incredible experience during our visit to Sedona, celebrating our wedding anniversary and my birthday. One of the highlights of our trip was the unforgettable glass blowing lesson with the talented Chris. Chris not only showcased his exceptional skill but also his genuine warmth and patience. He made us feel comfortable from the moment we walked in and guided us through the mesmerizing art of glass blowing with expertise and enthusiasm. His knowledge of the craft was evident, and he took the time to explain every step, ensuring we felt confident throughout the process. Chris's passion for glass blowing was contagious, and it truly added to the magic of the day. We wholeheartedly recommend this experience to anyone visiting Sedona. It's a unique and special way to create lasting memories. Thank you, Chris, for making our anniversary and birthday celebration so extraordinary. You blew us away, both figuratively and literally!"

This place was awesome! My instructor was so sweet with helping me understand how to create the cactus for my first time glass blowing. The time it took was really quick too, only about 20-25 minutes. You can choose the colors of your art and be able to sculpt the flowers and help with the cactus. Highly recommend!

This was the coolest experience. Went with my husband for our first wedding anniversary to try the glass blowing class and had a blast! Took the afternoon class with Chris. We will definitely be coming back the next time we are in Sedona to do this again. If you get a chance to try their glass blowing class DO IT!

Such a great experience! We were driving by while on vacation and were curious so I googled the store name. I had less than 24 hours left in Sedona and Jordan still helped us arrange a bead making class for my family of 5. Doug was a wonderful teacher. He repeated instructions when necessary and made sure we understood. We are all so happy to have the beads that we made!
17:30 22 Apr 23
This was the most AMAZING experience! One of the coolest things I’ve ever done and I have a new found love & appreciation of glass. Alexa Rose was kind, fun, helpful, and super cool as we made these beautiful creations. I would recommend to everyone!
19:05 31 Mar 23
The Melting Point is an amazing place to have a special adventure in Sedona. The staff is friendly and very patient. It was fun to see how all the glass treasures are made. I would recommend this activity to anyone coming to the Sedona Area. Wish I could give more stars!
19:44 22 Mar 23
Jordan is an amazing artist and teacher! We enjoyed our glass blowing class a whole lot. He walks you through each step and you end up with a custom piece of art. My girls, ages 14 and 11, loved it!

Our daughter Emma just turned 16 and I was wondering what to get her for a gift. I asked her what she wanted and she really didn’t have anything. I thought maybe an “experience” would be a neat gift vs another “thing” if it wasn’t going to be a car with a big red bow. We had a trip planned for Sedona and I started looking for “things to do” there. I came across The Melting Point and they offer a glass sculpting class for beginners. So I booked it. We arrived and were greeted in a friendly manner and taken into the studio. Chris was our instructor and we chatted a bit and got to know each other. Then he gave a demo of what we would make with him. He explained the different techniques as he dipped his rod into molten glass and shaped it. Then dipped it into some hard crystal type glass to give it color and melted it and shaped it. He quickly formed it into a gooey flower as he pulled the petals with large tweezers. Remelting, pulling, and turning until he was satisfied with the results. Then it was our turn. Emma was so excited we let her go first. She picked her color and Chris helped her every step of the way. She had a big grin on her face. Then Ella went and made her bright teal flower. It was Tom’s turn and he let Emma make another flower instead. She was so happy and grateful. She made a pretty yellow flower since that is Tom’s favorite color. I offered to let her make mine too, but she insisted I go. So I picked a rainbow of colors for mine. When we were all done, we asked Chris about glass blowing and he was happy to demo that process. He made a clear glass vase and told us we could keep that too. The glass had to harden and cure so we picked them up a few days later. We were all pleased with our work and have the glass flowers and an awesome family memory to cherish!
04:05 05 Aug 22
I wish I could give 10 stars. Alexa did such a outstanding job teaching and helping us are glass projects. So much fun to learn.
16:44 04 Aug 22
My husband and I took a glassblowing class here in July and it was such a unique experience! The instructor was very experienced, thorough, fun, and was very systematic in how he lead the class. I felt safe the whole time, and it was so fun to be able to choose what colors we wanted and how we wanted our project to look and actually achieve that! I highly recommend this place for a class!
00:02 28 Jul 22
UNIQUE EXPERIENCE! MUST DO! I dont know where else you can do glass blowing, but it was pretty cool. You pay a flat rate and you have a choice of two projects. You can also pay to upgrade to more complicated projects too. Two of us decided to upgrade our projects. Chris was our guide and he was awesome! Very safety conscious. He gave a solid demo then patient step by step instructions. He did an awesome job in guiding all three of us to outstanding outcomes. Check out the finished pieces in the pics. One of a kind experience. You wont be disappointed!
18:13 22 Jul 22
Took my niece, who is 12 y/o, to the flower blowing class. The only way to describe this experience is AMAZING. The artist/teacher was simply wonderful, and the end result breathtaking!! Highly recommend!!!
21:11 16 Jul 22
Amazing experience and such a great staff. Learned a lot and can't wait till our flowers show up. I would highly recommend it to everybody. Great for a small group of people looking for a fun and unique experience.
00:34 25 Jun 22
I had an excellent experience there! Doug was an incredible model for me! I would highly anyone looking to take up glass flowing to go here for classes. All the staff are phenomenal!
17:29 31 May 22
Visited while in town with friends and took their beginner glass class. They give as little or much help as you need and our instructor clearly loved what he does. Would definitely go again
02:57 23 May 22
We had a private session with Alexa. She was great! Took time to explain everything and answered all our questions. Highly recommend the experience.
02:51 22 May 22
All I want to do all day long is make glass things with Alexa Rose. She is amazing and our group had a great time with her! So happy to have met her and have her as our instructor for our class! We can't wait to come back!
23:07 19 May 22
We really enjoyed our experience at The Melting Point! We took the beginner class and each made a beautiful flower. Then, I took the bead making class and learned so much! It was great to get some hands on training in glass art. We wish we lived closer and could get more studio time but, we will be back for sure! FYI, the $20. Grab Bags are totally worth it!
03:02 30 Apr 22
Alexis Rose taught our glass class! She rocked! Her directions were clear...safety was paramount! We had a fabulous time! Highly recommend this experience!
03:48 19 Apr 22
Amazingly engaging staff that give you a great experience. Our instructors were nice enough to show us some art still in the making. I think I’ll go back home and try out glassblowing a bit more!
02:30 09 Apr 22
I had watched artists work with glass before but experiencing the magic first hand was rather an addicting experience. I had a one on one experience with the instructor explaining every step, ensuring my safety and helping me make a memorable experience. This was definitely a self care experience creating something magical. I will definitely be doing more.
01:46 19 Feb 22
Amazing experience! Definitely recommend for anyone visiting the Sedona area. We stopped in to look in the gallery and ended up taking a beginner class. My fiance made a floppy bowl and I made a flower. Alexa Rose was super cool and helpful, great vibes. Really enjoyable time! Thank you
00:45 14 Feb 22
My fiancé booked us a class for my Christmas present and we had a great time! Chris, our instructor, was super nice and knowledgeable. He guided us through the process and it was a perfect mix of doing it ourselves with him helping us so we didn’t mess it up or get burned. I would highly recommend if you’re looking to try something new and a little unique!
16:50 07 Feb 22
Alexa Rose was so informative, laid back and fun!! Very cool experience!!! We made a flower and paper weight, she helped us but still encouraged our own creativity, highly recommend !!
21:31 23 Jan 22
This place is awesome. We did a groupon deal to make glass flowers. Four of us went in and Alexa Rose talked and walked us through the process. Then she took each one of us through hands-on making of our flower project. She was super informative, friendly, beautiful, and an excellent instructor. We had such a good time doing this. They also have a gallery with absolutely beautiful glass items from pendants, humming birds, bowls, glasses, artwork, to a glass wheeled bicycle. Stop in when in Sedona, you'll be glad you did. And if you're feeling artsy schedule a glass making or glass blowing project, lots of fun.
00:13 30 Dec 21
Best experience ever! My son and I had a safe and wonderful time making a bowl and a cup. Cheers to the Melting Point for their great and awesome care!
00:52 24 Dec 21
I had the best time of my life there while making a bowl. The instructor was amazing, it was fun, safe, and exciting. Must do in Sedona.
19:25 17 Dec 21
We had the best time making flowers out of glass! We were there in May 2021. Our 8yo kid had an experience of her life! She still brags about it. The instructor guy was awesome and we got our flowers shipped to us without any issues! I would definitely do it again if I’m in AZ! Definitely recommended it!
22:09 13 Dec 21
Really cool place took the glass blowing class it was so fun! Our pieces turned out great and we learned so much from the great teachers! Worth checking out even if you come just for the gallery.
00:52 21 Nov 21
We literally had the best time thanks to Alexa Rose and Chris. My husband and I decided to take the beginner class to celebrate our 17 year wedding anniversary and we are so happy we did. Chris and Alexa Rose took extra care with us. They made sure we were safe, above all they made the class super fun. We will be back again for sure. I'd recommend this to anyone that can let loose and enjoy making something cool with new friends helping you along the way.
21:14 05 Nov 21
This is truly one of the funniest things you can do on a visit to Sedona..Best part is you can do it with a group or just as a couple or single..My wife and I have been going to the Melting Point for many years now and every year we go take the class and it gets better every year..If you go to Sedona this is a true MUST HAVE TO DO..Do not miss out take a class with Austin or Jordon they completely make it the best day ever!!!! You will see TAKE A CLASS you will be blown away and left wanting more...
23:36 03 Oct 21
My family and I went for the beginners glass blowing class and were not disappointed! Chris was AMAZING! He was very professional, explained everything perfectly and has a great personality for teaching!!! We will definitely be going back to do more!!! Thanks Chris for a great experience!!!
22:37 03 Oct 21
Chris was amazing! We were complete beginners and he helped us make beautiful pieces while being safe, chill, and having a great time!
19:39 27 Sep 21
Fantastic class! Highly recommend. Also, beautiful glass pieces for sale. Would love to do it again, if in Sedona.
05:46 19 Aug 21
I love glass blowing! All of the art is beautiful! The workers are very nice also. 🙂
16:59 04 Aug 21
Family had a fantastic time.. Salute to Chris.....he was an awesome instructor. ...very knowledgeable....made the experience memorable. Thanks Chris.
20:44 25 Jul 21
We can't say enough about our experience. We made two bowls. And had an amazing instructor. Something we will always remember. We will be back but with friends and family.
23:21 04 Jul 21
Did a beginner course where we chose paperweights and bowls (you choose what you want to make, which determines the price), and it was super informative and truly a good time. Austin (one of the owners, and our fearless leader for the session) couldn’t have been kinder and more patient. Tomorrow we will get the finished product, but we definitely already got our money’s worth. Definitely a must!
23:06 29 Jun 21
Great experience for the whole family. Austin was a fantastic instructor, very informative as well as entertaining. Highly recommend!

Amazing place and great art work. Staff was great and very welcoming. The art is unique in itself and reasonable priced. Thank you!
02:16 11 Jun 21
Our family loved Melting Point! Our group ranged in age from 6 to 68 and everyone had a blast. An amazing way to experience glass blowing up close.
17:06 23 May 21
Decided to take our 6 year olds to The Melting Point on vacation after they became obsessed with the Netflix show. I was very nervous about it, but our instructor Chris was beyond amazing. He helped out kids make awesome cups and let them do all the parts safely. There were no issues at all and it was so fun. The kids said it was the absolute highlight of the trip. Can't recommend enough, thank Chris!
05:05 23 May 21
I’m not a big reviewer but felt compelled to do so for the Melting Point. My husband, Jake, and I took a class and had an amazing time! Jake has been wanting to work with glass since he was in Kindergarten, but I was pretty anxious: I don’t even like getting things out of the oven! My anxiety melted away once we got in the class and I saw how safe it was with our instructors’ help. I was able to immerse myself in the experience without fear, and Jake got a chance to live his best life and fulfill a childhood dream. The shop itself is also great and has something for every price point! The art is unique and captivating: definitely a must see in Sedona!
21:11 13 May 21
Chris was an amazing teacher! Genuine! Safety was super duper important. Chris explained in detail the steps and what to expect. He really enhanced the experience and the sentimental crematorium became a joyous experience! I'll be back!
23:50 02 May 21
Great place!! We had so much fun during our beginning class. This was our second time here. Will be back again!!
16:28 29 Mar 21
This experience was above and beyond what I expected. Chris our instructor was so knowledgeable and fun to work with. Safety was his concern and his support throughout the process was awesome. It’s a must do experience while in Sedona. The shop is also amazing, beautiful craftsmanship.
15:49 28 Mar 21
Had a blast here! Took a 2 hr class with my mom and 2 daughters and the instructor, Chris, was so nice and so informative and made us feel confident every step of the class. We ended up making some very cool stuff that we will cherish forever!
18:16 26 Mar 21
I brought my 10 year old here for a class. We both absolutely loved it and had a great time. Chris did an incredible job! We definitely recommend!
04:19 23 Mar 21
From start to finish. The Melting Point staff was very flexible and professional. We had a great time. Definitely worth the cost. We will be back!
00:20 01 Mar 21
UNDERRATED!!! Why this doesn't make the list of Top 10 things to do in Sedona is mind blowing! Get it 😜 but seriously, the guys are awesome and helpful! Do👏This
18:13 26 Feb 21
So fun! Chris and Jordan were great and helped us make a beautiful glass blown cactus.
04:24 20 Feb 21
Wow!! Taking a glass blowing class here was one of the coolest experiences ever! Chris was so much fun to work with and so knowledgeable. If we lived closer we would do this again, and again. A must for sure!!
17:32 14 Feb 21
Such an amazing experience and would 100% recommend! The instructors make sure you’re comfortable with everything but also allow you to be involved. They also are very knowledgeable and can answer any questions you may have. If you are in Sedona it is a great activity to try. We can’t wait to pick up our pieces tomorrow!
05:06 03 Feb 21
Jordan and his staff were super helpful and made the glass blowing class an exceptional experience! Can't wait to come back and do it again.
20:29 18 Dec 20
Took the intro class with Jordan. He answered every question we had. My wife made the flower and I did the ornament. This was such an awesome experience!
23:26 19 Nov 20
I did a 3 hour torch class with Doug, making 2 pendants and my husband did a glass blowing class with Austin, making a cactus. Both were awesome! Very nice staff, patient and obviously interested in seeing that you're safe, having fun, and making some amazing memories and cool glass art. Definitely worth booking a class with these guys and we can't wait to book again when we're back in the area.
00:28 06 Oct 20
If you're looking for a way to express your inner artsy self, you must check out glass-blowing classes here. We signed up for a class where you get a chance to select from several different pieces. I made a glass tumbler and my boyfrienddid a cactus. They walk you thru safety first, then show you how to make the piece. You can pick your colors and they help you with each step. The finished item gets fired overnight and you pick it up (or they can send it to you) the next day. We were very pleased with the end results. Jordan and Austin are really friendly and great advocates of their featured artists and Sedona in general.Their attention to service and detail was very appreciated. Check out the amazing pieces in their gallery, you can find some unique treasures to treat yourself or gift someone special. They are paying careful attention to small group size with Covid19. This would make a great event for families with teenagers, a group of friends, a birthday, or other celebration. We would love to go back and create another piece again soon.
20:35 27 Sep 20
This was an awesome experience! Austin and Jordan were great and it was so memorable. We will be back and highly recommend booking a class to make something! Great job, Melting Point!
18:22 25 Sep 20
The melting point is impressive storefront with a lot of art from very talented people and the class that I had with Austin was great. He has the patience of a saint and is extremely knowledgeable in the art of glass blowing and the glass that I created with his help came out beautiful. I would love to come back here and take more classes and I recommend anyone else to come to this place and to learn or just to look and find some art that may look great in your house

This is a wonderful glass gallery. They have jewelry, sculptures and functional pieces as well. It is also wonderful that you can schedule a class to learn how to create your own masterpiece! Austin and Jordan are friendly and helpful.
14:34 14 Jul 20
Jordan was willing to open the Melting Point, on his scheduled day off, to accommodate our family of four as we embarked on our first-ever glass blowing excursion. He was positive, upbeat, safety conscious (Covid-19, too), and directed us to a project that we can use in the future at our family dinners. Even though the Melting Point will not be open for business until Thursday, he has offered to ship our items to Paradise Valley as soon as they are fully cured. Thank you, Melting Point owners, for your flexibility and passion of helping others gain basic knowledge of glass work.
22:48 20 Jun 20
Phenomenal! We ordered 4 glasses for our anniversary which turned out better then we hoped! Jordan was amazing through the whole process. True master craftsmen!!
19:43 11 Jun 20
This was the best experience, EVER! The staff is amazing and the glass blowing was so fun and done incredibly safely. Loved the whole time from beginning to end! Thank you so much, Melting Point.
01:00 06 Jun 20
My husband and I went to a glass blowing class today. We had an amazing experience. Austin and Jordan were fantastic and funny and made us feel comfortable working with the glass. Excited to pick up our finished pieces, will be having our daughter take a class next time we are in Sedona!
23:28 29 Feb 20
Great way to learn about glass blowing and walk away with a piece of art you made yourself (with a little help from your friends)
17:26 09 Feb 20
Really fun place to do something you always wanted to try. Teachers are great with a very well thought out space.
07:39 25 Jan 20
Great Glass Art , Wonderful Artist , Authentic Teaching. Had a great experience and made a Beautiful Piece of Glass Art to take home the next day after annealing .
17:23 09 Jan 20
This is by far my favorite place in Sedona. Their artist are super friendly, talented, and informative. Their studio is full of beautiful glass and a must see in Sedona
22:27 02 Jan 20
Awesome Place can watch these guys do their craft for hours..amazing
04:53 09 Dec 19
Thank you to The Melting Point for hosting Kevin O’Grady and 4 days of an amazing borosilicate glass class. Special thanks to Kevin O’Grady for being such an amazing teacher and for taking the time away from your very busy schedule to share your incredible experience and knowledge with all of us in this class. Also, thank you to the other students in the class, you all made it a memorable week. Jim Boulay, Tucson, AZ
00:19 25 Oct 19
Took bead making with my husband who has really taken a liking to glass! Also took class blowing...will be back for more. Stayed over as well room was great! Staff great!
06:31 22 Sep 19
Amazing experience!! I signed up for a class with my boyfriend, I wanted to make my own vase and flowers and he made a wine glass. Austin was our instructor and he was so friendly and funny, he gave very detailed instruction making sure we were safe and understood how everything worked. All of the staff were super friendly and helpful! They also have some great pieces for sale in all price ranges, from $15 to several thousand, so you can definitely find something to walk out with if you're looking for glass art small or large. I highly recommend this shop if you love glass art or want to learn and have a fun new experience!!
21:12 14 Sep 19
Nice, fun place. Very happy with the pint glass I made.
17:18 31 Aug 19
Great experience . You should definitely check this place out . The staff is very knowledgeable
03:26 18 Aug 19
We love this place!! Their glass art is like nothing else we've seen...such talent! I love their glass straws and now they have some with turtles and octopus on them along with other designs. Just the best place!
23:20 22 Jul 19
What an amazing place they have the sweetest crew that works there, it's so fun watching the art being made right in front of your eyes, priceless pieces of glass that are to beautiful to describe always helpful and answered questions, will definitely put this on my permanent stops when I'm here! Also they have a AirBnb upstairs so before you fight the crowds at the hotels you should check them out, right in the middle of the strip and walking distance to just about anything you need!
01:44 07 Jul 19
My wife and I went to a glass blowing class today. We had a great experience. Austin and Jordan were very professional but also funny and made us feel comfortable working with the glass. Excited to pick up our finished piece tomorrow. Highly recommend.
02:27 06 Jul 19
Cool glass art. Some pricey and some affordable, but all very beautiful.
19:17 24 Jun 19
Wonderful experience. Jordan and Austin were great. Will absolutely do again.
17:49 17 Jun 19
Great artwork here and the artists are super friendly as well.
18:40 03 Jun 19
Lots of fun. Wife and I both made floppy bowls.
16:03 10 Feb 19
Amazing gallery, very much worth checking out, tons of variety from the whimsical to practical and ornate to functional. Also, I have worked with them to make a bunch of custom pieces and they're truly great. Very easy to work with, awesome creative guidance, and great technical educators about the glass blowing process.
23:49 04 Jan 19
If you appreciate well-done hand-blown glass, visit The Melting Point while in Sedona. The sheer amount of different glass options for purchase is truly staggering. While we didn't participate, they also offer some kind of 'blow your own glass' event, which seems fun. Their giant marble run outside is super cool, too.
19:35 07 Dec 18
Surprised my girlfriend with stopping here to make glass sculptures. Such a great experience! Our instructor, Austin, was fantastic. We had a class of 4 people and we each created our own piece of art. The price for the item of your choosing to create is quite reasonable. None of us in the class had ever created glass sculptures before but they all came out beautiful. Highly recommend this for a fun date. Enjoy the experience, create something together, and take it home with you.
23:21 16 Nov 18
This was such an exciting new adventure for our family to partake in! I had so much fun experiencing glassblowing for the first time. It was very informative, yet not too formal and light-hearted. Our talented artist, Jordan started off with all the basics and explained how to stay safe with the specifics of the equipment and how to handle the glass. We had a special that included the class and making a single flower. The staff that we worked with were wonderful and the made the experience so special. Do plan on having time to come back and pick up your piece because it does need to anneal overnight. They do have shipping options available on request. The shop is located in an area that is absolutely stunning as it is located in Sedona. This is something everyone should try at least once, but I am sure you will be you be back for more!
16:19 25 Apr 18
Super fun glass blowing studio and store! The artists run the store and are great to talk to!

A glass gallery for the true glass collector. Prices are very reasonable-something for everyone. The uneducated might have trouble understanding the complex pieces in the gallery but the staff is second to none in explaining all the processes. Not to be missed!
19:03 03 Feb 18
We were just appointed we had hoped to see them blowing glass and they weren't. And most of the pieces were quite unusual and not necessarily something you'd want to buy to take home. Even if they hadn't been really expensive.
15:26 21 Jan 18
Fun, informative classes! Experience a new art then take your handmade treasure home to enjoy!
16:39 26 Dec 17
Fun classes! Friendly staff! Beautiful products. You'll find gifts for everyone! Visit whenever were in town!
