Glass in the Garden and Afternoon Tea Experience

Learn how to blow a glass bauble at National Glass Centre, followed by an indulgent and delicious afternoon tea in our Brasserie.

We will teach you how to form and shape the glass, apply colour and pattern and blow the glass into a beautiful bauble. Your bauble will then be donated to The Alnwick Garden to feature alongside 1,000 other hand-blown baubles in a stunning Christmas tree installation, to be revealed in October 2014.

Every participant will receive an invitation to an exclusive launch event to see if they can spot their bauble on the Christmas tree when it is revealed and two additional free tickets to The Alnwick Garden (worth £27.50).

After your glass blowing experience enjoy a delicious afternoon tea in our riverside Brasserie. 

£28.50 per person or £34 per person (including pink Champagne or fine wine).
You can also just do the glass blowing experience for £15 per person!

Available every day between 21 July and 31 August at 13.00, 14.00 and 15.00
(not 24, 25 and 31 July and 1, 8, 15 and 22 August).

Book your experience at our Visitor Services Desk or call 0191 515 5555 (Option 9)

Please note: baubles created will form part of the Christmas tree and will therefore be unavailable to keep. Booking is essential for these experiences.
