Glassmaking Courses - Enjoy the ancient art of the glassblowing experience

Want to have a go? Why not book a glassmaking experience at our workshop with Neil. This is a hands-on glassmaking experience where you will learn the basic skills of gathering glass from the furnace, shaping and forming using traditional tools. After the work has been made and annealed (cooled) overnight you can collect or we can send it on to you for you to keep, admire and enjoy! (if posted, £10 packaging/postage) The day runs from either 10am to 12.30pm OR 2pm to 4.30pm starting with a safety talk and then introduction to the tools and equipment in the workshop. Please bring a bottle of water with you. See Terms and Conditions below.
