Bath Aqua Theatre of Glass
Bath Aqua Glass is a beautiful aquamarine colour, reminiscent of the city’s spa waters, and created by adding copper oxide to molten glass. At Bath Aqua Studio and Factory Shop, in the heart of the city’s Artisan Quarter on Walcot Street, you can watch skilled glassblowers and glass artists craft wonderful glassware inspired by Bath’s Roman and Georgian heritage.
The studio is free to visit and watch the glassblowers at work, plus ask them questions about their craft, and you can also take part in studio activities, including blowing a bauble or the more in-depth bauble-making. Before you leave the studio, take a look at historic stained glass exhibits, which have featured on BBC’s Antiques Roadshow, and a unique collection of artefacts from around the world.
