BZZDX Our Price Match Promise


Arrive at glassmaker Derek Bransfield's studio and be taught by an expert about glass making with other like-minded enthusiasts. This hands-on experience offers a rare opportunity to work with molten glass from the furnace. After an introductory talk on the important aspects of safety, get acquainted with the equipment and learn about the techniques you will need. Next, roll up those sleeves and apply key glass-making techniques to a piece of glass by making a paperweight, work with hot glass, gather it from the furnace to shape it and apply colour. This experience also includes a demonstration on glass blowing techniques. If you wish to keep your piece, it can be annealed overnight, cut and posted for a fee of £20.

In a Nutshell
  • Learn glass making in Buckinghamshire
