Where we work
We make our glass by hand in Rosedale Abbey, inspired by our location in the heart of the North York Moors National Park. We observe the shapes, colour, textures and beauty found in the slow construction of the landscape around us and the changes brought about by thousands of years of land management and the harsh northern elements.
Workshop & Gallery
Our buildings were built in 1827 and were previously the village blacksmiths.
In this single storey converted barn, Stephen blows the glass in the workshop. Attached to the workshop there is a gallery space which has many pieces on display. Visitors can watch the glass making process – we are open to visitors all year round. Click here for opening times and map.
A tradition of glass making in Rosedale
Rosedale has a long and little known history of glass making dating back to the late 1500’s when French Huguenots worked a furnace in Rosedale.
The original glass furnace can be seen at the Ryedale Folk Museum www.ryedalefolkmuseum.co.uk.
