Would highly recommend to all. My mum, sister and I had a glass blowing/making lesson with Stuart and thoroughly enjoyed it. Stuart is a really nice guy, very talented and makes you feel comfortable. Glass making is amazing! Thank you Stuart!

After reading all the reviews here on trip advisor I was quite excited and had a lot of expectations. Stuart did not disappoint and was very knowledgeable and fun! I thought that I would spend most of my time just watching but that's not true... he guides you through each step. Would definite do it again!

The glass-blowing experience was a birthday present from my husband and thank goodness he thought of it because I had a great time!

Stuart is very thorough in explaining the process you will go through before you get started, so you're right at ease with what will happen and in what order (although thankfully, you don't have to remember it all). The setting is small enough and relaxed enough that you don't feel too intimidated either, which helps you to relax into it all.

I was surprised at how heavy all of it is - so thank goodness Stuart helps carry the pole and glass! I would never have managed by myself.

I couldn't really pinpoint one favourite moment...although I'm sure that when my bowl arrives through the post, it'll be right up there! Stuart's colleague very kindly demonstrated how to make a BEAUTIFUL swirly straw/drink stirrer from glass (it was stunning) and between that, Stuart's general manner and the experience of actually moulding something beautiful from what looks like molten lava, I just can't recommend it highly enough. I'll be going back at some point to make something else! (P.S - ask them to show how to make a horse/swan. It'll blow you away, even when they think they've done a rubbish job of it).

We decided to do glass blowing as an anniversary experience and we were not disappointed. Stuart was an absolute pleasure to spend the morning with and he taught us a great deal. We have already told many people about the experience and will continue to do so. We will be back for sure and hope that one day Stuart will expand his business to Poole, Dorset! A great all round experience, you wont be disappointed.
