Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Had a fantastic glass blowing experience today! Bailey was a fab teacher, very friendly and I enjoyed every minute of it! As it is so local to me, I will definitely looking for other courses to attend!

My husband and I did the full day glassblowing in January this year. We were in a group with two lovely, fun guys and we all had a good laugh. Bailey is a very chilled, friendly tutor and he has lots of patience (came in handy with me!).
We watched as he demonstrated the process and each took it in turns to make a paperweight, a bauble and a vase. He gave as much or as little help as we needed and you are never left alone, he is beside you at all times ready to help/advise
The Glass Hub has a few different rooms, one for glassblowing and others for other types of glass classes. There are loos just outside and a kitchen where we sat and had drinks and lunch together. Parking is pretty much on the doorstep.
We had our pieces delivered and they arrived quickly and in one piece!
Would definitely recommend.

The Glass Hub and its staff are absolutely excellent. My wife and I were lucky enough to be gifted an all day private lesson which was lead by Bailey and supported by Georgia, both of whom were fantastic and lovely! We made loads of top quality glass items from baubles to vases. We learnt so much from Bailey who is extremely talented and knows so much about the craft! Very highly recommend to anyone thinking of trying it out either through private lesson or group lessons which I imagine would’ve been lots of fun as well. Will definitely be returning to have another go with an even longer list of things to make :D p.s. thanks to Amy for her packing skills made sure everything got home safe and sound!

I booked onto the Glass Hub's web page for an excellent 1/2 Day Glass Blowing Experience near Trowbridge with tutor Rosie for £130.
Good joining instructions and friendly welcome with fresh coffee in the morning.
Helpful, instructive tuition and encouragement paying attention to safety at all times.
Pieces are left to cool overnight before being ready to collect of post out at cost. There was a small whoopsie where they posted the wrong piece to me, which whilst annoying for a couple of minutes was dealt with immediately by Rosie calling around the other students to track it down - highly professional customer service, solving the problem quickly, efficiently and with absolutely no fuss - THANK YOU ROSIE!!!
A truly great crafty course with professional staff in a good safe environment, set in stunning Wiltshire countryside - Thank you again for a great mornings glass blowing.

I was given this as a surprise birthday present - and what an excellent surprise it was. I have always been interested in glass-blowing and cannot speak highly enough of this experience. A massive thank you to Bailey and the whole team!

What a fabulous day. We got to learn so much, work with hot glass and create wonderful pieces that will become family treasures.

Many thanks to our wonderful tutor, Bailey. So patient. Great coaching. Quickly spotting mistakes and setting you back on track. Lovely guy. And many thanks to his assistant, Heather. Equally patient and great company.

Unlike some courses where you don’t really make the final piece you take home, we got to make a paperweight, a bauble, a vase and a tiny ‘duck’ (?). They are all in the annealer at the minute, so ‘no idea’ exactly how they will look - but soooo looking forward to seeing the final pieces, just based on the way these pieces looked before they went in.

This might feel like a pricey treat, yet you really get every penny’s worth of value out of a great experience.

Our family did a private lesson. Despite being one of the hottest days in UK history, we all loved it. Rosie, our guide, was warm, friendly and knowledgeable. She patiently guided us through the techniques to make a paperweight, bauble and vase each and was cheerful throughout, despite not getting much of a break from the heat of the oven. We had worried that our teens would lose interest at some point in the day, but they were really engaged. Definitely worth the money!

Did the beginners day and it was great! Both Sasha and Bailey were very knowledgeable and created a friendly atmosphere when teaching and helping us create our pieces. Made a paperweight, bauble and vase. Would 100% recommend.
