Visited as family of 3 in June 16 (2 adults one 10 year old). We watched a very informative demonstration of glass blowing using the blue glass before attempting to "blow" our own Christmas bauble.

Definitely worth stopping by if you are in Bath for the day. We were running late when we found the place but the (manager?) was very friendly and allowed us to watch part of the glass blowing at a reduced rate with 10% off anything that we purchased. If we had been in the area for longer we definitely would... More

We did bauble glass blowing; the boys were very nice and helpful and talked and took us through every step. Brilliant day and our finished articles arrived in the post a few days later. Great fun, brilliant experience and... More

We visited on Tuesday and our Grandaughter had a go at blowing her own bauble. It was interesting, informative and HOT!!! Everything was really well explained and the lads answered any questions. We were unable to collect the bauble as it has to cool for 24 hours and we were heading home on the afternoon, so we paid the extra... More

Our granddaughter thoroughly enjoyed blowing her bauble and couldn't wait to collect it the following day. My advice would be to book this experience as they can only cater for a small... More
