Christmas Bauble Taster Sessions 2019
We’re already taking bookings for our popular Christmas Bauble Taster Sessions for 2019. We’ve been organising these “make your own Christmas decoration” sessions for several years now and we’ve found that they’ve always been a great success. So much so, that in fact some people come back year after year and build up their collection of Christmas decorations over a period of time. Indeed, we’re looking forward to seeing some old friends as well as meeting new ones! Last year around 400 people joined us to blow a bauble each.
Each place costs £40 per person and payment is required with booking. Please note that as with all hot glass items, we need to anneal your baubles overnight. So they will usually be available for collection the following day. We can make arrangements to send your bauble (s) to you. There is a charge of £10 for up to 12 baubles.
You can now book online here for Saturday morning bauble courses in November and December
NB: We’ll soon be adding some Sundays as well and also Friday mornings, as well as a few Thursday evenings too.
Please contact Adam for other possible dates and for group bookings. Early evening sessions can be arranged for groups of 10 or more.
This is an exciting, hands-on workshop. You will make your own blown glass Christmas bauble to keep and treasure or give as a gift. Why not come along with a group of friends and family for a fun-filled pre-Christmas outing?
Of course, if you want to make more than one bauble, you can book more than one space. In reality, there isn’t really a limit, but if you want to make more than 10, we can arrange a special session for you.
Sat Nov 2nd, Sat Nov 9th, Sat Nov 23rd, Sat Nov 30th
The first session will be at 10.00am (arrive 9.45am)
The second session will be at 11.45 am (arrive 11.30am)
Each session lasts around 90 minutes.
We’ll be adding more dates before the end of August.
Sat Dec 7th, Sat Dec 14th, Sat Dec 21st
“Dear Adam and team.Thank you for a wonderful workshop on Saturday we had a great time. Our youngest wants to come back next year to carry on bauble making!!” – family of four.
“Just wanted to say thank you to you and your team. My work friends and I had a really enjoyable time and will be recommending it to my other friends”
Furthermore, after the session you can enjoy browsing our on-site gallery, which is packed with glass art gifts and accessories perfect for Christmas.
Over the years we’ve learnt that some people are confused by the term bauble and prefer to refer to these as Christmas decorations, but we don’t mind what you call them!
If you would like to do more than just a taster session have a look at our Introduction to Glassblowing course, which run most weekends.
In 2016 we made Christmas Decorations for Matches Fashion which looked fantastic. Here is an image of one of our bauble trees!
We can arrange a special session for a group of 10 people. Please contact us for details.
