I have enjoyed visits to Valletta Glass, Medina Glass and Phoenician Glassblowers, so maybe I have been spoilt in those places.

You are not allowed to take pictures, and I find it really nice to have mementos both in the form of glass and pictures. I am not sure why, but who am I to argue.

Unfortunately the lady in the store didn't make us feel welcome, so I decided that it was best not to push my luck by actually buying something there. A shame, as there were some very nice pieces.

If you do decide to be open to the public, you need someone front of shop who is welcoming and that was not the case here. We went on to the pottery barn after and had a much better experience with a very welcoming artist.

We have visited this glass making centre on many occasions.
The quality of their products is excellent, especially the glass products threaded with silver.
We have quite a collection and have given many items as gifts.

To see how the glass goes to the owen is always thrilling. The items are really beautiful and the quality is high-class.

My husband and I visited the Gozo Glass workshop having already decided we wanted to bring back a Maltese glass ornament from our holiday. I loved watching the glassblowers at work, and the stock in the adjoining shop was gorgeous. We really enjoyed selecting a vase to take home. I also appreciated the fact that the shop assistant left us to it and didn't make any suggestions etc - I much prefer shopping without feeling hassled. We would definitely come back here if we visit Gozo again!
