The London Glassblowing Studio and Gallery has been established for over 35 years and is where world-renowned Glass Art pioneer and ambassador Peter Layton creates his work. The Studio is currently in its third home, located on the vibrant Bermondsey Street, SE1 - at the heart of a growing hub of London's finest Galleries and Eateries. Leading on from the street, doors described by The Guardian as 'Cathedral-like..' lead up to the cutting-edge London Glassblowing Gallery; a fantastic open plan space with regular exhibitions showing everything about contemporary glass from hot blown work, to cast pieces, to jewellery exhibits. Sitting behind the Gallery is the Studio/Workshop, where the vast team of renowned artists blow the work using the wide array of blowpipes, hot furnaces, the Glory-hole, the Kilns, and at a safe distance, a section for the public and passers by to sit and watch the beautiful act of blowing glass live. Behind the scenes is a cold workshop where all the cutting, polishing and finishing takes place.

London Glassblowing works somewhat as a collective, in which Peter Layton nurtures talent by inviting artists to work and blow for London Glassblowing, in return receiving an unrivalled space to blow and exhibit their own work.

  • A haven for someone who really appreciates art. See the glass transformed before your eyes into a remarkable collectors piece
  • Definitely worth a visit, even if only to browse. We bought a beautiful orb. Saw some excellent blowing demos.
