Come and watch the magical art of glass making performed by a master!
A visit to the Isle of Wight is not complete until you have been to Isle of Wight Studio Glass – a premier attraction on the island for over 40 years. This world-renowned glassmaking studio is situated at the Arreton Barnes Craft Village, Arreton, near Newport, and visitors are welcome to watch master glass maker Timothy Harris at work. Timothy is recognised internationally as a leading designer and maker of studio glass. His work is to be found in the private collections, galleries, museums and retail outlets of many countries. His studio pieces are appreciated by connoisseurs as desirable and collectible investments, as well as objects of beauty that are a joy to own and part of the enduring legacy of British craftsmanship.
However, as well as witnessing the artistry involved in making beautiful glass, this is also an opportunity to indulge yourself in something very special – a treasure of lasting beauty. You might choose a simple memento of your visit, a gift, or even a piece of unique and investable art glass. But you don’t have to be a wealthy enthusiast to own a piece of Isle of Wight Glass, as the studio shop offers a range of designs to suit almost everyone.
The studio is open daily and has an excellent viewing area where you can watch this very special glass being created by Timothy Harris and his assistants.
