  • Pyrex Pattern

Patterns of Pyrex

Available all year round

What is Pyrex? What was it made from and what was it used for? And why is it so important to Sunderland’s heritage? This cross-curricular workshop introduces pupils to Pyrex, a significant part of Sunderland’s glassmaking heritage, and also explores the use of patterns in Pyrex designs. Pupils will get the opportunity to design their own patterns and transfer them onto glass, creating their very own piece of artwork. The session makes use of the extensive collection of Pyrex in the legacy section of the heritage gallery, supplemented by an object handling box of Pyrex.
