Workshop

The Glassblowing Experience

12 June - 31 August 2024
2pm to 4pm every Wednesday and 10am – 12noon every Saturday.

Try your hand at creating beautiful flameworked glass art at the brand new, summer-long Glassblowing Experience.

Enjoy the thrill of discovering new skills as you work with a flaming torch and shape molten glass into ornamental glass pieces to take home. Projects include bead making, pendants, marbles or a solid sculpture.

Also hear about the endangered craft of flameworking, which is sometimes called scientific glassblowing.

The new Glassblowing Experience, which has been developed by the Museum in partnership with Robert McLeod, Fellow of The British Society of Scientific Glassblowers (BSSG), runs at the Museum from 2pm to 4pm every Wednesday and 10am – 12noon every Saturday.

The Glassblowing Experience Workshops are suitable for adults (18 years and over) and for beginners through to those with previous experience.

The Glassblowing Experience costs £30 per person for two people booking together (session total £60) or £50 for a single participant.
