Join artist Theresa Easton and the Learning and Engagement Team at National Glass Centre for a free CPD event for Teachers.
Saturday 7th December 10.00 – 13.00
Join artist Theresa Easton and the Learning and Engagement Team at National Glass Centre for a free CPD event for Teachers. The workshop will use techniques inspired by Jeffrey Sarmiento: Constructions and themes from our Stories of Glass in Sunderland exhibition. Participants will explore how to make quick and simple prints using everyday objects and found materials, without the need for specialist equipment. The aim of the session is to develop new skills that can be used in the classroom to complement a school visit to National Glass Centre.
This is a free event. Places are limited so booking is essential. To book your place please contact a member of the Learning and Engagement team on 0191 515 5555 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Constructions is a mid-career solo exhibition of new work by Jeffrey Sarmiento, supported by a publication and an international tour. Jeffrey Sarmiento’s sculptures utilise glassmaking technologies both ancient and modern to express the complexities that underpin cultural identity. For Constructions Sarmiento has created works that explore image, object and architecture, uncovering identity through multiple cultural settings. Constructions makes us re-consider our cultural identity through image and object.
