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