Glass in the Garden

Have a go at blowing glass!

21 July – 31 August / £15 / Age 12+
1 hour slots available between 10.00 - 15.00
Available every day, apart from 24, 25 and 31 July and 1, 8, 15 and 22 August

We need 1,000 baubles to create a stunning glass bauble Christmas tree for display in The Alnwick Garden, Northumberland and we want you to help!

We will teach you how to form and shape the glass; apply colour and pattern and blow the glass into a beautiful bauble.  The bauble will then be used in a magnificent glass Christmas tree at The Alnwick Garden from October half-term.

This is a great chance to have a go at glass blowing, learn a new skill and to contribute to a very special artwork! Please note: all baubles created will form part of the Christmas tree and will therefore be unavailable to take home.

Every contributor to this exciting initiative will receive an invitation to an exclusive launch event to see the artwork revealed and two additional free tickets to The Alnwick Garden (worth £27.50).

Why not enjoy a delicious Afternoon Tea after your glass blowing experience?

 Book now via Visitor Services on 0191 515 5555 (option 9). 

Watch the video below for a front seat view of one of our glass bauble blowing experiences!
