Craftsman at work

What a great place to visit and watch a real craftsman at work. David and his sidekick are warm and friendly chaps, I even bought a flying pig, highly recommended.

I dropped in to find a Welsh Dragon to take home from my holiday and could have spent a fortune as there were so many beautiful items to choose from - not all dragons - so very temping. Great selection to suit all budgets, and I was lucky enough to have a demonstration, as it was late in the day... More

This is the second time we have visited. Both times on our way home for Anglesey. It is truly a feast for the eyes - glass everywhere. This is time we were luckily enough we saw a glass blowing demonstration. During the demonstration lots of bad!! puns were made!!! Well worth a visit. We hope to visist again next year.

Nearly never went into this studio but so glad we did. Owner and staff were very pleasant, cheerful and full of fun. There were some beautiful pieces and my husband bought a large dragon which is now hanging in our hall and everyone admires. Was treated to a demonstration of a podgy dragon being made which we also purchased and... More

We pulled up at what looked like someone's house so apprehensively wondered in where we received a warm welcome. We wondered around both floors and saw lots of nice pieces but it was just a shop although you could see where the glass maybe blown / demonstrated.

This is a must if you are in the area at all. Very interesting to watch the glass being worked into interesting and unusual items by a skilled craftsman. Some pieces are a little pricey but when you see the work that goes into creating them you can understand why. Others are not out of most people's ranges and provide... More

We found the Glassblobbery by chance while campervanning round Wales last week - a little dot on the map that intrigued us. What an interesting place! A treasure trove of skillfully crafted gifts and wonders we spent a good while exploring. We were even treated to a demonstration where the artist created a glass cat before our eyes. Well worth...
