Capture a unique moment in time... A glass hand or foot cast makes the perfect keepsake or a special gift to grandparents and family.
With the help and guidance of one of our factory team, your child's hand and/or foot will be pressed into soft sand to create a mould. Molten glass is then poured over the top to produce your hand cast keepsake. The glass will then be taken away to be gradually cooled in a temperature controlled environment to prevent the item from cracking. Once ready we will get in touch to arrange a time for collection. Delivery is available for an additional charge - please allow up to 2 weeks for delivery.
With the helpful guidance of one of our skilled blowers you can make your own tumbler. Have a go at blowing your own glass which will then be cooled and finished on our production line. Please leave 48 hours before the finished item can be collected. Postage is available for an additional charge - please allow up to two weeks for delivery. This activity is suitable for adults and children aged 7 years plus.
