The Glassworks at Soisy-sur-Ecole and glass-blowing
Since 1978 the Verrerie de Soisy-sur-Ecole has been revealing the magical art of glass-blowing to the public. The visit starts in a magnificent wooded park beside the River Ecole where glass creations are placed with charm and elegance in a beautiful, tranquil setting.
The visit continues in the workshop which is open to the public, where Frédéric and Nicolas bring glass to life before your eyes, from the ‘gathering’ of the molten glass to annealing, creating objects which can be found on sale in the shop. An information space explains the key principles of the magical transformations which take place in the workshop.
