Shaun the Sheep

Shaun the Sheep

Where would you go to have bespoke miniature fishbowls made? Aardman Animations, creators of the wonderful Wallace and Gromit and Shaun the Sheep characters used Cotswolds based LoCo Glass. Nearly a year ago LoCo Glass announced that they had just finished making cute miniature goldfish bowls and that the next time we'd see them would be in the Shaun the Sheep movie with a plasticine fish inside. That time has come! Head to cinemas now to be enthralled by another amazing movie by Aardman. As one reviewer wrote, " Smart, funny, big-hearted, endlessly inventive and quintessentially British, this timeless, stop-motion adventure is a shear delight from start to finish." Sounds like great half term viewing.

LoCo glass work from the New Brewery Arts Centre in Cirencester – you can visit their workshop to see them in action. For more information about them visit http://www.locoglass.co.uk/

Glass making in the Cotswolds

On our last visit to The New Brewery Arts Centre in Cirencester we had the privilege of watching glass-making in action. LoCo Glass have a studio where you can pop in and see their glass-makers in action. It's a fantastic opportunity to see skilled craftsmen and women making beautiful objects, using techniques which haven't changed for hundreds of years. We loved watching the glass being wound around like thick treacle. Sharing this album of photos as sometimes people prefer looking at photos to video!
