Children's Glass Fusing
The Stained Glass Museum runs glass fusing workshops for children at two levels. Level 1 is designed for beginners, and Level 2 for those who would like to develop their glass fusing skills.
All children must be accompanied by an adult.
Our SGMinis sessions are held monthly for under 5's, their older siblings and parents/carers. Each 1.5 hour drop-in session (10:30am-12:00pm) has a different theme and includes a themed story and craft session, as well as creative play.
Upcoming SGMinis sessions
SGMinis are £2 per child, to cover craft costs, including refreshments for all.
No booking required; drop-in during advertised times.
Safeguarding: Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times when attending our workshops.
Access: All of our workshops take place in the museum which is accessed via a stone spiral staircase of approximately 40 steps. Buggy park and toilet facilities available on the ground floor of the Cathedral.
