Fantastic workshop
May 2021 • Couples
We went to the beginners workshop today and had the best time! It was an amazing experience working with the glass and designing/making our own creations.

Hamish and Nick were a fabulous team of instructors and made the whole experience brilliant. Thank you both so much!

Amazing!,

Can’t recommend the paperweight workshop enough. It’s incredible to work with the molten glass and both of the tutors were great. We felt safe at all times, were able to select our designs and made to feel confident while working.

The studio glass is also amazing but visitors should definitely try a workshop if they can.

Looking forward to collecting my creation

Blown away!

Four of us spent a fabulous day creating with the help of the talented and fun Hamish and Nick. They patiently guided us through the glass blowing process and we each left with priced possessions and a great sense of pride for a job well done. It’s an expensive day out but worth every penny - especially as you have something cool to take home with you. Highly recommended.

Well worth a visit for it's display of fine glass artworks for sale and an excellent view of the glassworkers in action. Only requires a few minutes stop.

Glasswork workshop and store
Oct 2020 • Family
This is a combined glasswork workshop and store. The underground is a workshop and you can watch staff making glasswork. Quite fascinating to watch the process. My children really loved it. On the upper level, there is a small store where you can buy their products. Very beautiful but also expensive. Thanks

A really good view of how the glass pieces are made
Oct 2020
An interesting insight to the glass blowers world. There is also a shop in the building selling some superb pieces at very reasonable prices.

Fabulous to see real pieces being made and how they are formed. Kept the kids mesmerised. Great gallery of high quality pieces for sale too. Could only have been made better if the artists talked about what they were doing so we had a better idea.
