Barleylands Craft Village

We are situated in Barleylands Craft Village in Billericay, Essex. There are more than 60 individual craft workshops, beautifully landscaped courtyards and an adventure playground for the children. There is also a restaurant where you can enjoy a light lunch or cup of tea.



If you would like to see our products, you are welcome to come along to our showroom anytime. All of our Ashes into Glass memorials are on display for you to have a look at. We will be happy to show you around the workshop – just ask.


See your glass being made

You are very welcome to come along to see your own items being made. Saturdays are set aside for this – please make an appointment with us. You can bring as many people as you like; Our workshop is spacious enough. If you can't make it along, you can read what others have said about the experience on our Facebook page.



Please allow for half an hour at the glassworks per item. You can bring the ashes with you when you come along. You will see all the processes of the ashes and glass being produced. Please be aware that the glass needs to cool slowly for 18 hours and then we do the polishing, toughening, mounting and engraving. Your items will be completed in the weeks after your visit. We usually post the pieces via Royal Mail Special Delivery or you are welcome to collect in person.
