Pyrex100: Schools Pattern Design Competition

6 June to 8 July 2022

2022 marks the 100th year since Pyrex was first made in Sunderland. Sunderland Culture is celebrating this special anniversary by inviting pupils from Sunderland schools to design a new Pyrex pattern for 2022.

The winning designs will be made up into glass plates, cups and bowls for a display at Sunderland Museum & Winter Gardens from 24 September 2022.

Here are some websites showing historic Pyrex pattern designs to give you inspiration:

The age categories for entries are 4 – 7 years, 8 – 11 years and 11 – 16 years and one winner will be chosen from each age category.

Download your Schools Pattern Design Competition Sheet and take it into school to complete with your teacher.

Please post your completed A3 design sheets to Jennie Lambert, Public Engagement & Learning Manager at Sunderland Museum & Winter Gardens, Burdon Road, Sunderland, SR1 1PP.

The closing date for entries is Friday 8 July 2022 and winners will be notified by Wednesday 13 July 2022.
