Our Shop

Please note: our shop is fully cashless and only card payments are accepted. 

Complete your visit with a browse in our Shop and choose the perfect souvenir for your day out from our selection of beautiful glass and ceramic artworks and jewellery, hand-crafted by local artists.

Enjoy our selection of Studio Glass made right here in the building – a huge proportion of our glass is made onsite in our demonstration studio, you can even purchase the piece you have just watched being made in one of our three daily demonstrations! Ask a member of the glassblowing team for more details.

Look out for our ‘Made in Sunderland’ brand on products for the perfect regional gift.

Incredibly, we sell over 25,000 glass marbles per year, they are our most popular item for children! We pride ourselves on supporting the local creative economy through the shop and our craft fairs, and demand is high for local handmade gifts. Wherever possible we source our shop products from artist and makers who are based in the North East. Our stock is also tailored to the time of year as well as our current exhibitions.
