Hot Glass Blowing

The traditional craft of glass making

Hot Glass studio One of the largest studios in the UK

We love glass. We love to make glass. We love to show you how we make glass. Daily demonstrations will show you the art of glass blowing and you will be entertained by our wonderful artisan glass makers. Demonstrations take place Tuesday through to Saturday. We aim to offer sessions around 12 noon, 2pm and at busy times 3pm. These times may change and we advise you phone ahead if you are on a time schedule. It’s worth remembering that we are a charity (no 1006990) and sometimes we have to make commissions or teach classes in order to keep the galleries open. Scroll down for information about classes.
