Took my girlfriend here last week as part of her birthday celebrations. Was perfect from start to finish. Staff were experienced and helpful. We both blew a bauble, which both look great. Very interesting and learnt a lot.

Excellent demonstration by two knowledgeable and friendly young people who are clearly passionate about their job. I'd recommend anyone to visit and my 8 year old daughter loved the bauble blowing!

Spent a fun hour or two with friends on a hen party blowing our very own baubles, the two girls who led the class were really informative and welcoming - went back on Monday to collect our balls and as they weren't quite ready was shown another demonstration - this time two guys were making a stunning glass. Really recommend... More

We visted this shop last weekend, having looked at their website. The choice of colours and goods were exceptional. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and I bought three necklaces, when I only went in for one! The best thing about this shop, is that you don't have to buy a chain when you buy the necklace, it is all... More

Absolutely amazing! Watching the guys at work was just hypnotic...I was in awe! We also blew our own baubles, which though was not as hands on as I would have liked, was still an experience. Resulted in some beautiful keepsakes to take home! Staff were friendly, cannot fault their customer service at all. Informative and definitely worth a trip if... More
