The Glassblobbery has a wonderful shop with something for every taste and budget. The glass sculpture demonstrations are fascinating to watch, with an engaging and informative commentary - although the bad jokes will make you wince ! Our visit brightened up a damp afternoon.

Called in to while away some time, and stayed for ages, friendly people who are keen to pass on their knowledge, especially to youngsters. On top of that the designs are really beautiful, well worth a visit.

Whilst on a trip to Wales we decided to visit The Glassblobbery as we were staying close by, and we absolutely love glass. A great little shop, with items to suit everyone's taste and budget. I managed to buy a brightly coloured dragon seated on a piece of Welsh rock, along with a silver flying bat on a glass base... More

If you like glass bits and bobs and indeed large glass things, this is the place to visit. There are fascinating live demos with a commentary and endless displays of Glassblobbery. I would defy anyone to visit this place and not leave with a momento.

The glass was interesting and we might have bought some however the proprietor then told us we were in luck, he was about to make a piece of glasswork and would we like to watch. Sounded interesting so we did. Oh dear. What followed was the worst in terrible jokes, awful puns and patronising diatribe. Boy did that guy like... More

What this guy can't do with glass isn't worth doing. Amazing gift shop with on site demonstrations. Also does commissions.

Both myself and my partner visited the Glassblobbery in early June and found it after seeing a leaflet at another attraction we were visiting. I can honestly say I am so glad we did not miss out in visiting this delightful establishment. Not only can you see David personally demonstrating such skill and dexterity in making all the wonderful works... More

We happened upon the Glassblobbery after finding a leaflet at Ruthin Craft Centre and it was well worth a visit - friendly staff, beautiful craftsmanship and all for a donation to watch the Glassblobber at work! We bought gifts and the Monty dragon we saw made, but there is no obligation to buy. My only recommendation to the Glassblobber would... More
