  • It was a good trip - too short. Otherwise - okay...

  • Amazing craft. I especially liked the marine themed pieces with bubbles in the glass.

  • Really enjoyable insight into glass blowing although would have been better if we had more time actually watching the glass blowing and not as much time trying to get us to buy from the shop. Our guide was very informative and did make it interesting so I would recommend it

  • Unfortunately we got lost and never made it to this event.
    When we did get our bearings, we still didn't find it.
    No one other than out poor sense of direction was at fault.

    I'm sure it would have been wonderful!

  • Very cheap but only lasted 20 mins or so. Saw a guy doing some glassblowing for less than 5 mins and then looked round a shop and got our free gift
