It’s Christmas at the Cone and Glass Museum!

Glass CraftWhile Santa’s elves have been busy in their North Pole workshop making all the toys for girls and boys, elves at the Red House Cone and Broadfield House Glass Museum have been busy in their own workshops… crafting some amazing glass gifts that bigger kids will love.

If you’re struggling to find that special, unique gift for a loved one – why not pay them a visit and see the glorious glass goodies on offer? From stunning jewellery and ornate ornaments to Christmas decorations, wall plaques, glasses, tableware… and much, much more – we guarantee you won’t be able to leave empty handed.

And to make your visit extra sparkly and festive, combine browsing their beautiful crafts with one of their upcoming Christmas events for a day out that will really get you in the Christmas spirit.

If you’re feeling all creative yourself – there are even Christmas craft workshops you can join in so you can make a unique gift, rather than just buy one!

About the Red House Glass Cone

Lying in the heart of the Stourbridge glassmaking industry, the Red House Glass Cone was built at the end of the 18th century and was used for the manufacture of glass until 1936. Today, it is the only complete Glass Cone in the area and one of only four left in the United Kingdom. With the aid of film, audio guides, exhibits and live demonstrations, you can now explore the Cone’s 200 years of glassmaking history.
