Watching Richard at work, creating unique and beautiful works of art is like watching a beautifully choreographed ballet. His skills as a glassmaker bring together scientific skill, artistry and craftsmanship. You won't be able to resist taking something away with you. He wisely produces a range of lower priced items to ensure that everyone can. The station is also worth a visit for his wife, Sandra's colourful and exciting paintings. They will both give you a warm welcome.
The setting is lovely, at the end of the Battlefield railway line in an old station moved and reconstructed from Leicester.
Snacks are available at the adjacent cafe? Car Parking and toilets across the track.

Excellent workshop where the glassblower was creating a new piece. Happy to take wquestions and explain what was going on at the time. Nice and educational distraction whilst waiting for the train!

I'm leaving this review as a response to the very last review that was left on here, by a stalker of one of the young women who works here. BOTH young women have had their vaccinations, and there is indeed hand sanitiser on site. They DO NOT have bad body odor, as they shower everyday as well, and they certainly don't go around calling people "sheep". Please leave the glassworks owner alone, and get yourself some psychological help.

The business and the young women who work here are professional and hardworking, who make beautiful pieces of glasswork. I have several pieces myself, and will often buy a piece for my mother on special occasions, as she's also a big fan.

We went there last year , hearing there was glass blowing and moulding there. It would have been more interesting if there was a little information given, all through the time we were there, there was no commentary. I thought the prices were quite reasonable and some of the works were works of art

Terrible place...went for ice cream at the cafe and thought we would look at the glass, 2 girls working in the glass bit talking about how they wouldn't get the covid vaccination as they said 'waste of time' both coverd in sweat... I could smell they body oder from a mile off, such bad hygiene and no hand sanitiser out so we decided to be safe and not buy anything.... Both gave me and my partner filthy looks and told us we were sheep when we asked about why they had no sanitiser... If you are an at risk person I'd advise avoiding this place

Found the whole experience of watching a glass vase come to life as exhilarating. The glass prices are very competitive especially considering the time and effort needed to produce such special pieces.

We visited while holidaying on the Ashby Canal which is only 10 min walk away. Mr Golding has been working for 40 years and his expertise is obvious in the quality of his work. He has some wonderful exhibits.

Quaint little glassblowing studio. Beautifully crafted pieces and patient, helpful staff. Joined to a lovely little café so you can have a drink or snack whilst you watch the glassblowers create.
