Hi everyone!

I bought my daughter the gift of a day with Gordon at his glass making workshop for her birthday. What a day she had! She has always been fascinated by things like this so this really made her day. Gordon was laid back, easy to chat with whilst monitoring Rachel the whole time and not just demonstrating but explaining the science of every aspect of the whole process too. Rachel completed 3 pieces of art during that day, a couple of days later after kilning process, we were able to collect her work. He even allowed me to take pictures! If anyone wants to give someone a unique and very memorable gift, then look no further than Gordon at Brighton Glass. You will not be dissapointed!
