Had an amazing afternoon making our own baubles today. Claire was really supportive and explained everything clearly. We felt relaxed and confident while doing it and will definitely be back again to.... more »
This is the only remaining producer of completely hand-blown and hand-cut, lead crystal in the United Kingdom. They sell the goods here at discount prices. The highlight for me was the Blow your Own Tumbler Experience. Clare Wilson gave us a three hour tuition on how to gather molten glass from the furnace and to shape it into a blown glass tumbler. We were able to bring back two baubles and six tumblers at the end of the session. Excellent experience and great emphasis on safety.
Excellent value for money. In the 3 hours we were there we made a glass bauble each and 6 tumbler glasses. Tutor Claire was very entertaining and used very simple and easy to follow instructions. Retail manager at the front desk (sorry forgot your name) was very friendly and informative and gave us a small tour while we waited for our class to start. Would definitely recommend.
