    25 km far from Perpignan, in the Eastern Pyrenees (South of France, betwenn the Pyrenees and the Mediterranean)
    From 2 persons. Price per person.
     
    The Eastern Pyrenees are also famous because of the art of glass melting and glass blowing, which is developed around the local village of Palau-del-Vidre. Each summer, en of July, the International Festival of Glass takes place and enable the local artisans to introduce their specialities and know how. We discovered closed to the village the art of glass melting and we want you today to be initiated to the art!
     
    The art of glass melting
     
    12 years ago, our partner decided to change her professional career and decided to specialize in the glass melting. It is a fusion process which is the result of the superposition of transparent glass and coloured sheets or splinters which merge, intertwining the colours and the transparencies in one homogeneous piece being heated and brought to its melting point (between 800 and 850 °).
     
    Create your own products
     
    We will get you involved in the glass melting. After walking you through the particularities of this art and of the different materials used, you will realize your product (ashtray, cup…) and bring it back to home. A unique opportunity to release the artistic fibre that sleeps in your mind.
