Småland Glass Factories

12 Oct

The ‘Kingdom of Glass’ awaits

If you’re looking for a chance to see more of Sweden, capture some artisans at work, and possibly buy nice gifts for loved ones, Lund University Foreign Friends and the International Desk invite you to visit the famous Småland Glass Factories.

On Friday, October 22, a bus will depart from the Domkyrka at 7:30am, and return around 6:30pm. Cost is 275 SEK per person, lunch included (don’t forget to indicate allergies/special requirements).

Factories to be visited include Kosta Boda, Målerås, and Orrefors.

Tickets are available at the International Desk starting today. Places are limited.

(Editor’s Note: Went last year, really enjoyed it!  Got to walk around the glass blowers’ work area, very cool to watch…  Each factory has its personality, its specialty. Bought Christmas gifts for everyone back home – managed not to break anything somehow! :D)
