The Stourbridge Lion Loco is a unique mobile hot glass blowing studio, available for education, demonstrations and special events.

Glass blowing is an art form that involves melting glass to high temperatures 1050 C to gather and form the molten glass into different creations,

We can demonstrate and teach the basics, together with the history of the Historical Stourbridge Lion Steam Loco anywhere that suits you.
