Creative Workshops for Secondary Students

Our secondary school workshops take inspiration from our exhibitions programme which showcases artwork exploring concept and technique by leading International artists working in glass.

We use the artwork as a starting point for all our creative workshops to devise glass making activities that can be used to add additional skills and experiences to school project work.

The content of our workshops contribute to different levels of Arts Award. We can work with teaching staff to develop a workshop theme and support students in achieving their Arts Award qualifications.
