Overview

Glasform is located in the heart of the Fylde Coast a short journey from Blackpool, Preston and Lytham St. Annes. The furnace runs 365 days a year in what was the shippon used to house the cows when Pointer House Farm was once a Dairy farm. We are open to the public and in an informal setting, visitors can watch the glassblowers at work using techniques hundreds of years old. There is also a showroom full of beautiful handmade glass to view and purchase.

Lovely glass products. Staff around but no-one asked if we wanted to see the glass being blown or if we wanted to buy anything though.

This is a John Ditchfield's workshop and gallery. You will recognise that you are there by the impressive glass sculptures outside. Inside you can often see John at work. The gallery is impressive with pieces of all sizes and all price ranges.
