The final touch be the ‘millifiori’, tiny multi-coloured glass jewels, pressed into the side of yer egg and smoothed into the surface. Once shaped to perfection, your egg will rest in the annealer, coolin’ down for a day or two.* This workshop be a rare chance to create a glass gem under the watchful eye of our captains – a true pirate’s bounty in glass art!
