  • Great artwork. However the lady owner needs to improve her attitude in co-existing with neighbors and locals.
  • You get the beauty of the glass in recycled stained glass and mosaic in the original form
  • Definitely worth a visit! Great glass making demonstration, great shop although expensive. The rickety bridge is exciting & scary and only costs 150 shillings 👍 VERY rough road to it... need a 4x4 really!
  • Definitely a must do for anyone visiting Nairobi. Incredible products and an awesome experience.
  • Good work worth a visit kipup
