The Original Bristol Blue Glass - Studio/Shop has re-opened. Please check directly on their website and/or social media channels for the latest updates.
Bristol Blue Glass was started back in 1988 by James Adlington, with the help of glass maker Peter St Clair. The aim was to re-establish a glass making tradition back into Bristol that had been lost for over 60 years. At this time a lot of the traditional English glass making techniques were in severe danger of being lost forever. Though many a struggle, James managed to learn and pass on many of the old skills required to truly blow glass by hand, in the time-honoured fashion. Proud of what they have achieved over the passing years, The Original Bristol Blue Glass company makes some of the finest Table Ware free blown in England for many years.
Though they are called Bristol Blue Glass they are able to blow everything in clear Crystal as well. Their skilled glass makers blow all their glass using only the simplest of techniques and basic hand tools. All their range of glass is free blown, therefore every piece is unique just as everyone in the world is. They see themselves as a welcome change from the bland uniformity taking over the modern world: an oasis of skill and design.
FREE ENTRY to shop & glassmaking.
You can also blow your own bauble for £25.00. Make sure you ring ahead to book.
Also why not visit their outlet store which is loacted next to St Nicholas Market in the City Centre.
