A grand day out...

On Friday 25th October a group of our studio members went for a wonderful day out to the National Glass Centre.

We spent the afternoon taking in some contemporary glass art in Jeffery Sarmiento's solo exhibition, where we saw a combination of print techniques with glass. We also had a brief tour around the museum area to learn about Sunderland's historical connections with the material.

 Then we went to watch the daily glass blowing exhibition which was fantastic and gave a few of the members some new insight into how glass is created.

After soaking up all of the culture we had some teas, coffees and cakes in the cafe before heading home.

Fingers crossed we get more great days where we can get the members out into Sunderland to enjoy the array of crafts, arts and history that our city has to offer.
