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.

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.

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

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
