“We visited a free demonstration of glass-blowing. Having seen such demonstrations in Venice and elsewhere I could have given this a miss. Glad I didn’t – the demonstration at the Glass Centre was informative, fascinating and enjoyable, possibly better than those seen in Venice.” National Glass Centre Visitor Comment
