Can I take it that was in Crieff?
I didn't know you could get to join in! How did you manage to arrange it?
I'd love to have a go, and I visit Crieff fairly regularly.

For those "down sarf" who want to "have a go", you can arrange to make your own paperweight at Isle of Wight Studio Glass.

You seem to be able to do it at Crieff and King's Lynn, but Caithness Crystal is King's Lynn
