Bath Aqua Glass, next to Bath Abbey is a beautiful independent glass shop/studio where you can watch the makers in action. We make Stained Glass and jewellery in our Abbey Courtyard shop. All items are handmade by skilled artists in Bath in one of our two workshops and include everything from pendants and earrings to wine glasses, vases and stained glass mirrors and hangings. We ship tax free outside of the EU.
We have a glass-blowing studio ten minutes away where we have daily demonstrations, and where you can put your breath in a glass bauble!
Open 7 days a week Monday – Saturday 9.00am-6.00pm Sunday 11.00-6.00pm.
Taking its name from the city’s Latin name (Aquae Sulis) ‘Bath Aqua’ is made by adding copper oxide to molten glass. This gives the aquamarine colour reminiscent of the historic city’s hot springs. The designs available in this finely crafted range, take inspiration from ancient Roman glass vessels. Their delicate colouring and translucent quality reflect the healing properties of the famous Roman spa Baths.
