Welcome to La Verrerie...
Close to the picturesque Lac de Guerlédan and a few minutes away from Mur-de-Bretagne, La Verrerie de Guerlédan (or Guerlédan Glassworks) is located in the village of Caurel, in the very heart of Brittany.
The glass workshop is situated in the former village shop. As well as making glasswork a variety of courses are offered throughout the year which are suitable for beginners, and those who already have experience of glass making. These courses range from short ‘taster’ sessions of half a day to week long events which can make an ideal holiday. The aim is to provide you with an enjoyable experience learning about the exciting medium of glass and give you an opportunity to make something special to take away with you. The classes cater for individuals, small groups and families.
We are renovating the old village bakery, which will become a Gallery. The original façade of the bread oven will be retained and will provide a fascinating setting for the work on display. The Gallery will sell items that have been produced in the workshop together with selected works of other artists.
You will find a warm welcome whether you visit the gallery, participate in a course, stay in our chambres d’hôtes, or just drop in to say ‘hello’!
