Embark on a captivating journey into the world of glass blowing with Laura and Emily Smith, the sister duo behind Molten 1090. A distinguished graduate of Chelsea College of Art and the Edinburgh College of Art, Laura's 15-years of experience surround you in their beauty glass studio.
What sets Molten 1090 apart is their profound commitment to a circular design ethos.

Her dedication to local production and collaboration with UK artisans speaks volumes about her ethical and collaborative approach.

Stepping into the Molten 1090 studio is a real treat. Bathed in natural light during the day, and decorated with beautiful ambient lighting of the studio's own design at night, it is full of Laura's collections and is a real hidden gem.
Laura's work embodies not only technical mastery but also a deep connection to the materials she works with. Her passion extends beyond glass, with a genuine commitment to nurturing the environment and fostering a sense of community through her work.
I had such a wonderful time at the workshop yesterday! I came solo and Laura and Emily were so lovely, I immediately felt very welcome. I learned so much and really enjoyed getting to have a go at glassblowing. I would absolutely come back again for another workshop!
What a great experience this was. I have always been fascinated by glass blowing. Laura demonstrated how to make the Christmas bauble and then we made our own! We also made a paperweight, which is my favourite for sure.
It was also fascinating just watching others work on their own baubles and paperweights.
There were plenty of snacks to keep us busy too. At the end of the class there were also glasses of red and white to keep us happy.
I'll definitely do this again, next time with my partner.
