COVID-19 Update for Schools
School visits and workshops at National Glass Centre and Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art are currently suspended due to Covid 19 restrictions. For more information please contact the Learning Team on [email protected].
At National Glass Centre we use glass to help young people explore STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths) subjects. We encourage creativity and using our exhibitions as inspiration for children to learn about the art, science and history of glass.
Our Learning and Engagement team are all Arts and Design graduates and share their knowledge, skills and enthusiasm for creative learning when they facilitate these exciting school workshops.
Witness the changing states of this amazing material as molten glass is formed into a finished, solid object. All of our visits include the opportunity to see glass being made in our hot glass studio. Our skilled professionals provide a commentary which describes the tools, science and creative making processes that are being showcased.
