Come along to one of our ‘Blowing for Beginners’ Day Courses. We offer a practical introduction to learn glass blowing, with individual tuition by our master Glass-blowers. By the end of the day you will have created your own vases, bowls or glasses as a unique souvenir of the occasion.
Each course runs from 10.30.a.m. to 4.00.p.m., with a break for lunch. We will provide all the equipment needed, and plenty of hot and cold drinks!
Numbers on each course are strictly limited, so that you will receive individual attention in order to get the most from the course.
Each course will cost £130 for the day, which will include the use of all equipment and materials, and also the articles that you produce, which you can take away the next day.
Places are still available for Courses on the following days in Blue:

Thankyou for expressing an interest in our Glass Blowing Taster Course. Each day lasts from 10.30.a.m. to 4.00.p.m., with an hour and a half break for lunch. (You may wish to bring your own sandwiches, or else visit one of the numerous cafes and restaurants in Bedminster, within two minutes walk.) We will provide you with plenty of hot and cold drinks.
You will be provided with all the equipment you will need for the day, and at the end of the course we can send to you any items which you have made at for a flat rate of £10.
You should wear loose comfortable clothing, and sensible stout foot-wear. Open- toed sandals or shoes are not advised.
You will be in a small group, (numbers on our courses are always strictly limited) so that you will receive individual tuition and attention. However, we do ask our students to follow closely all the instructions of their tutor. Molten glass can obviously cause injury, and although we carry comprehensive public liability insurance, we want you to remember the day for all the best reasons!
There is ample public parking outside and very near the workshop, and ‘Bus Service Nos. 52, 53A, 75, 76, 90, 121, 511, 672 stop in Dalby Avenue, alongside. Temple Meads Station is just over a mile, and Bedminster Station is within a hundred yards. Please ask if you need further directions.
Please note that although this course does not require great physical exertion, those with heart conditions or respiratory problems are urged to be cautious, since glass workshops are warm environments, which may lead to a feeling of faintness in some people. However, we welcome all students above the age of 16, and we are confident that you will have a thrilling and fascinating day.
