Students will explore the exhibitions and glass studios, focusing on the scientific make-up of glass and the techniques used in glass-making. Students will then respond to art works in the contemporary exhibition in a Creative Workshop.
Glass Fused Mosaic Tile (£8.00 per student) Students will design and create their own artwork using coloured glass tiles. Each glass mosaic tile will then be fired in the kiln and can be picked up one week after the workshop.
