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.
As well as our practical glassmaking workshops for secondary school students, we also offer a Careers in Galleries and Museums day. Students work with three members of staff in varied roles across Learning and Engagement, Exhibitions and Marketing and Communications. The day consists of a tour of the building and an introduction the Centre and the aims and objectives of the organisation. Following on will be three interactive talks and activities where students will find out about what it takes to work in the arts. This workshop can stand alone but can also be part of an extended project in partnership with This is Creative Enterprise.
