I purchased a voucher as a gift for a taster session in glassblowing. What an amazing experience. David was just wonderful, very patient, and extremely talented. I would most certainly recommend a visit to glassblobbery, there are some wonderful purchases to be made....I will definitely be visiting again.

Lovely stop in on the way past, watched my personalised unicorn pegasus being made, and learnt some *welsh* in the process!

We found out about this place through a leaflet in the accommodation we were staying in! It was only a five minute ride in the car. When we arrived we were warmly greeted. We were also shown how all the beautiful glass ornaments were made which was very insightful and the gentleman who was doing it was very friendly and... More

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

This little gem is well worth a visit when you're in Wales. The craftsmanship is excellent and imaginative, although you just might have to put up with the most awful puns! All good fun, though.

A great range of glass sculptures but also a nice selection of wood carvings and gift ideas. Really friendly welcome and interesting to see glassblobbery in action! Recommended.

We came to see the dragons he makes as they are stunning. Real artist at work, and if you are lucky you will see a demonstration with narration as he is pretty chatty. Quality glass works.

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

I have lived near Corwen for 18 years with my husband who was born in North Wales we went for a visit one day while we were both of work. The glass on display is fantastic and the display of the making of items is truly amazing so amazed how fast it was for such delicate work could have stayed... 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.
