Make your own Blown Glass Christmas Bauble

Still a few places available, so book now!

We’ve been running our popular bauble making sessions for several years now and they’ve always been a great success, so much so that some people come back year after year!
Each place costs £35 per person and payment is required with booking.

This is an exciting, hands-on workshop where you make your own blown glass Christmas bauble to keep and treasure or give as a gift. Why not come with a group of friends and family for a fun-filled pre-Christmas outing?

The sessions last around an hour and include a demonstration from Adam, who will then work with each person to blow their own bauble in a colour of their choice. If you’d like to make two baubles, just book two places!

After your bauble experience, you can browse our shop and gallery, packed with wonderful creative Christmas gifts, and enjoy a cup of mulled wine and a mince pie.

Available sessions:
Thursday December 10
3.30pm to 4.30pm and 6pm to 7pm

Glass blowing Team Building

Here is a review of a glass blowing team building session we recently held at the studio for a group of web designers, the London based 3Mil who designed our brilliant new website! The team came down on the train and we picked them up at Horsley station. After their glassblowing session, we dropped them off at the Onslow Arms in West Clandon, so they could catch the train back from Clandon after dinner. A great way to spend an away-day from work. You should try it one of these days!
