Christmas in Sunderland 21/11/2019 to 05/01/2020

Glass Tree Decorations Workshops

As part of Sunderland’s Festival of Light celebrations, we have received support from the events team at Sunderland City Council to offer a series of glass Christmas tree decoration making activities, at only £10 per item.

Join our glass artist Jayne Johnson and learn how to use frits, tacks, stringers and inclusions on beautiful coloured glass to design and create your very own special Christmas tree decoration for 2019. Once finished we will fire the completed work in our specialist glass kiln and make sure it’s ready for you to come back and collect in good time before Santa comes!

Where are sessions being held?

All sessions will be held at MBC HQ, 31 Norfolk Street, Sunderland, SR1 1EE

When are they taking place?

We recommend allowing around 45minutes to one hour to create your piece of work. You can call between any of these times on the following dates – just make sure you let us know what time you’ll be arriving when you book!

Monday, 16th December, between 5pm and 8pm

Tuesday, 17th December, between 5pm and 8pm

Thursday, 19th December, between 5pm and 8pm

How do I book my place?
Easy! Send MBC arts and wellbeing a direct message starting with the word XMAS. Remember to include a contact telephone number, what date and time you would like to book, and how many places. We will then call you back to take your payment securely over the phone and to confirm your place.
