National Glass Centre

Glass Art and innovation is on show at The National Glass Centre in Sunderland, a centre of excellence that supports the research, teaching, production, exhibition and enjoyment of contemporary glass.

The centre is home to students studying Foundation/Level 0 Art and Design, and BA (Hons) Glass and Ceramics undergraduate and postgraduate programmes at the University of Sunderland.

The National Glass Centre was created to celebrate the heritage of glass making in Sunderland and develop a glass industry for the 21st century. 

The centre was the recipient of the first major arts lottery award in the North East and the first Arts Lottery Funded building. It was officially opened in October 1998 by HRH Prince Charles.

The National Glass Centre runs a variety of different creative courses, classes and workshops for people of all ages. We also run activities for school groups throughout the year and professional CPD sessions.
