Teachers / Education Professionals & CPD

Sunderland Culture offers exciting learning experiences for schools, whether you are making a self-led visit or booking a led workshop or activity in one of our venues.

  • National Glass Centre Offer

    National Glass Centre specialises in delivering practical Continued Professional Development sessions to teachers and education professionals. These sessions are led by our experienced Learning and Engagement team alongside practicing artists and are aimed at broadening teachers’ creative skills.

    The focus of these sessions is to familiarise participants with the galleries, learning spaces and creative studios at National Glass Centre, increasing confidence in using our venue as a learning platform, as well as providing a practical workshop session to increase participants’ skills. Our workshops can involve glass fusing and other kiln forming techniques, stained glass, glass painting, sandcasting, sandblasting, glass printing or ceramics.

    If you have your own kiln at school, we can offer one-to-one courses to help you get the most out of your equipment.
