we visited here because of my obsession with anything delicate and breakable, and it didn't disappoint, it had it all and more. They actually make the glass artworks on site, with methodology instruction included for no extra cost, brilliant. That's not all, there is wood and metal artwork as well. It's an all around enjoyable time well spent

Glass artist David Pryce-Jones gave a very warm and entertaining welcome, his skills seemed to be second nature as he worked and talked us through what he was doing. We were on holiday at a cottage a few yards from Glassblobbery but got back after they closed, only visited at the end of the week, but so pleased we did... More

What a great stop we had, having been slightly disappointed in some other attractions my partner remembered from yesteryear, we were pleasantly surprised at the warmth and welcome we received at Glassblobbery, the owner was entertaining and funny whilst showing us his artistic skills in his work, even if some of his jokes were ... Well I had a smile... More

If you're looking for a fun and educational hour to while away, a visit to The Glassblobbery will well do that. David is an entertaining artist both with glass and a bag of seriously bad jokes, which keep the mood light and the education fun. When we arrived he asked us what animal he should make, and when we suggested... More

My husband and I were visiting a good friend who lives near Corwen last summer. She suggested a visit to The Glassblobbery, and refused to tell us anything about it, nor to explain the odd name. When we arrived, we were delighted to find not only a lovely glassware giftshop, but the workshop of David Pryce-Jones, a fabulously talented glass-blower,... More

I purchased a 2 day glassworking course as a christmas present for my wife. The 2 days exceeded my hopes and expectations. Both David and Wendy were friendly and very hospitable. The tuition was reaaly good, with David proving to be a patient and helpful tutor - although he makes things look so simple. Within an hour of our arrival,... More

Great attraction. The craftsman made a snail for us in front of us together and kept us interested all the way through. The jokes were sore but kept the mood light. I was very interested in how he made the glassware. If you are going through I would recommend it but I doubt you could spend more than hour there... More

Stopped by the shop after seeing brochures for it in two hotels in Wales and I am so glad I did. I was able to watch a kingfisher (complete with fish) being made and had a wonderful visit with the artist. The pieces range from extraordinarily beautiful to quite humorous and I even got suggestions for other places of interest... More
