EDP Norfolk - - Competitio­n -

THIS FAB­U­LOUS piece of glass art could be yours in our com­pe­ti­tion with the master crafts­peo­ple at Nor­folk’s fa­mous Lang­ham Glass. The first prize is for one of its sig­na­ture pieces: A Large Grebe and there are also 10 fam­ily tick­ets* to watch the glass­mak­ing demon­stra­tion to be won.

Lang­ham Glass was es­tab­lished in 1979 by master glass­maker Paul Miller and is still run as a fam­ily busi­ness to­day.

Orig­i­nally lo­cated in Lang­ham near the north Nor­folk coast, Lang­ham Glass is now in the pop­u­lar Nor­folk mar­ket town of Fak­en­ham.

Vis­i­tors can marvel at the glass­mak­ers us­ing age-old tech­niques to cre­ate a wide range of fine hand­made crys­tal prod­ucts, in­clud­ing birds, an­i­mals, vases, stemware and much more.

Each demon­stra­tion has a fas­ci­nat­ing in­for­ma­tive live com­men­tary, which vis­i­tors can en­joy from the seated view­ing area. The glass­mak­ers are al­ways ready to an­swer any ques­tions en­abling vis­i­tors to ap­pre­ci­ate the skill and ex­per­tise of this master craft.

Want to have a go your­self? Lang­ham Glass of­fers the op­por­tu­nity to have a go at glass­mak­ing, ei­ther by mak­ing a whisky glass or hav­ing the ex­pe­ri­ence of glass­blow­ing, blow­ing for as long as pos­si­ble to pro­duce a huge bub­ble. All ex­pe­ri­ences are done un­der the care­ful su­per­vi­sion and guid­ance of the glass­mak­ers. Full in­for­ma­tion on the ex­pe­ri­ences is avail­able on the Lang­ham Glass web­site.

The large gift shop stocks the first qual­ity prod­ucts that have been hand­made in the fac­tory by the master crafts­men, as well as a se­lec­tion of sec­onds.

If you are look­ing for some­thing other than crys­tal the gift shop has many house­hold names for col­lecta­bles, gifts, china, books and toys and there are mouth-wa­ter­ing hot sand­wiches, home­made cakes and scones avail­able at Café Nel­son from 10am to 4pm, seven days a week.

The cen­tre is all on one level, with easy ac­cess from the car park. The friendly team at Lang­ham Glass are al­ways on hand ready to as­sist with any vis­i­tor re­quire­ments.

*A fam­ily ticket in­cludes two adults and two chil­dren. This prize will be valid for six months, please check web­site for open­ing times.
