Did not expect to find such artistry in a small station building. Richard's skill is amazing and he had the grace to take time to explain how and what he was doing.

We visited while holidaying on the Ashby Canal which is only 10 min walk away. Mr Golding has been working for 40 years and his expertise is obvious in the quality of his work. He has some wonderful exhibits.

Very interesting place to visit based in an old railway station which used to be on Humberstone road Leicester. You can watch the glass being blown and then look at all of the glass ware in the shop.

Quaint little glassblowing studio. Beautifully crafted pieces and patient, helpful staff. Joined to a lovely little café so you can have a drink or snack whilst you watch the glassblowers create.
