Primary

Discover the history of glassmaking on Wearside, the science behind the glassmaking process and explore an exciting programme of contemporary glass art exhibitions.

Our creative workshops take inspiration from our permanent and temporary galleries, including our new Stories of Glass in Sunderland heritage gallery, allowing pupils to experience unique glass artwork in a gallery environment as well as discover the history of glassmaking in Sunderland.

To make the most of your visit to the National Glass Centre, choose two workshops from those listed. Combining two workshops allows for a full day of activity in which pupils discover the history of glassmaking on Wearside, the science behind the glassmaking process and explore an exciting programme of contemporary glass art exhibitions. All sessions have been developed in collaboration with teachers to ensure they support the curriculum and engage a variety of learning styles. We are happy to tailor sessions to link to your current topic of study.
