Copper foiling demonstrations and "have a go" glass cutting tables for kids will run throughout the weekend!
Please do come and take a look at the fair and meet the artists as they man the fair and exhibition – all are happy to answer any questions you may have about glass-making techniques. You could join a glass workshop, watch various glass demonstrations, place a commission using your own ideas, or even buy your own piece of handmade, designer glass to take home with you. There are also activities for children available throughout the day.
Artists are also displaying their work in an exhibition in the Gala pool cubicles.
The glass fair and exhibition are open throughout the Heritage Open Days.
