Glass Blowing

Walk through Burning Issues Gallery and in the adjacent hot glass studio visitors can watch glass artists engaged in the intriguing process of hand blowing glass.

The studio is run by Keith Grinter, with his "gaffer"  Brendon Sole. They can be seen blowing glass, as well as running glass blowing workshops for beginners. An extensive range of work by both Keith and Brendon  is available in the gallery. 
The studio is also hired by other glass blowers, including Rebecca Heap who does all of her glass blowing there, so is a regular in the studio. 

There is a viewing platform between the gallery and the studio so visitors can get a good view of the process. But be warned - it can get very hot in summer!
