A great way to spend an hour. My wife is really chuffed with the bauble she blew. Very helpful and friendly staff, from the shop through to the workshop. Book in advance though, only 4 visitors can 'blow' at each session.

The demonstration is supposed to be seen by adults as well as children. But if the lady installs adults first on the front row and and then kids on the back, of course kids can't see anything! Be careful, she is not child friendly!
