An independent glassblowing studio / gallery in Sandown, Isle of Wight. A family run business now in it's 20th year making beautiful hand sculpted art glass inspired by the natural surroundings of the island. Witness the magic of this ancient craft with their free glass blowing demonstrations which happen throughout the day (in season) Not only is every piece a stunning work of art, much of gallery itself was designed and hand built by the family, giving it a truly memorable touch. Their vibrant and unique glass makes perfect souvenirs and gifts for all occasions. The Evans family look forward to meeting and introducing you to the world of glass! School and large group bookings are available on request.

Super place to visit. We watched their glass blowing demonstration at 4 p.m. which is both informative and entertaining - saw them make a glass penguin, a glass flower and an enormous glass bubble. Ed is clearly very knowledgeable and passionate about what he does....More

A lovely family business worth visiting. We were shown a penguin, flower and a glass bowl demonstration. Throughly enjoyed listening to the passionate owner who clearly loved what he did. We definitely recommend you visit at show times at 11am and 4pm.

The couple running the place gave a free glass making display which was very interesting and showed great skill. There are lots of items already made which can be bought at reasonable prices.
