I simply cannot believe that I’ve actually done Glassblowing at the National Glass Centre based in the Wear Valley close to Newcastle Upon Tyne. This was my Sunday experience with Traverse 2014 and I’m grateful for the chance to reconnect with my family roots and also earn a new skill to my long repertoire! If you would like to know my experience in detail, why not check out my previous post – ‘Can you handle the Heat?’

I’m very grateful to Sue of Tammy Tour Guide for videoing my special moment learning the secret art of glassblowing. Without much further ado, here’s the exciting and intriguing video.

If you would like to find out more about glassblowing, why not get in touch with the excitable people behind the Newcastle Gateshead Tourism Board and they will sort you out.
