Overview

Shakspeare Glass & Arts combines the factory shop and studio with an inspiring gallery displaying an ever changing range of local and national artists and craftsmen. Enjoy a coffee and locally made cakes; let the world float by out on our decking over the River Parret, watch our glass blowers when they are huffing and puffing or sit and relax in the gallery. We have our own private free car park, dogs on leads are welcome and we are right on the river walk. Come and explore!
