Want to review this course?

An excellent day of glass blowing with Jon.
We got an insight into the profession through looking at some of Jon's work and making marbles, baubles and a vase each.
The course was very thorough and fun, with a supportive teacher to guide us through.
Everyone at the Mill was friendly and welcoming and I would definitely recommend this to anyone interested, especially as the course is suitable for all skill levels!

Amazing experience for my two boys in their twenties and me their mum. Jon was inspiring, calm and encouraging and we got to make marbles, baubles and a glass each.

A very hands on few hours but with Jon's gentle support guiding us each step of the way. We loved it.

The peaceful location next to the river was a bonus as we walked along and saw pigs next to the swans.

We all want to come but this time with my daughter too.
