Bring the family along and start a new Christmas tradition or create a wonderfully unique gift for someone special. The perfect, affordable opportunity to have a go at glass blowing and create a beautiful memory to hang on your tree every year!

Winner of the Gold Award for Best North East England Tourism Experience 2012, and original National Glass Centre hot-glass experience. Over 850 participants in 2012.  99% of participants said they would recommend this experience to a friend. 

Blow a Christmas Bauble experiences will run every weekend throughout November and December. Maximum of seven people per session. 

These one hour experiences offer you, your family, and friends the opportunity to personalise your bauble by applying coloured glass at over 1100 degrees centigrade. You will use a variety of coloured glass ‘frits’ to create your design. Working closely with one of the team members you will blow down the ‘iron’ to blow a bubble into the glass. The glass artists will finish your artwork by adding a glass hook to hang the bauble.

“A great experience that my daughters and I intend to make a regular part of our Christmas preparations.”
