I must have passed through Glanrafon and by the Glassblobbery hundreds of times over decades. Today, for the first time, I had sufficient time to stop and look. The sun was in just the right place to shine on many of the creations and I was absolutely transported by the effects which resulted. The works was infinitely more pleasing than... More

Very friendly staff, even with children who kept forgetting to look with their eyes and not their fingers! Wonderful products, the home made glass is simply gorgeous. The colours are so carefully applied to make products of high standards. Amazing postal service, we couldn't see exactly what we wanted, so we ordered it on the Sunday and it beat us... More

Visited with friends and family, happened across it on the way to Bala. The demonstration was very exciting the kids loved the way he turned the glass (like magic...they said!!!). Some beautiful local crafts, something for all budjets. Definitely worth a visit if passing.

I love this place. If you like watching crafts. Come and see the skills used in this glass blowing. My wife had them make me a kingfisher (Glassydorlan) on a blade of reed. Its amazing. I have had it since Christmas and I have not broken it.

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
