From Friday 21st November, London Glassblowing, the UK’s foremost hot-glass studio and gallery, will be hosting its annual Christmas Open House & Sale.
Alongside the welcoming glow of the roaring furnaces, visitors are treated to excellent homemade mince pies and mulled wine as they browse a treasure trove of unique, free blown glass pieces by both Peter Layton and his team of resident artists.
Whether you’re looking for the perfect bespoke Christmas gift, a studio piece at a generously reduced price, or the chance to watch the experts in action, London Glassblowing has it all.
Open Mon-Sat 10am - 6pm, and Sunday 11am - 5pm during the Open House

On Saturday 13th we welcome jewellery artist Davide Penso, who is travelling all the way from Murano to demonstrate how he creates his beautiful lampworked necklaces.
Both days will be a relaxed atmosphere, with no tickets required and demonstrations happening at various points during the day. Simply pop in and soak up the atmosphere at any given time. Both these days will offer opportunities to tick a few people off your Christmas gift list!
