Hylton Castle: More than another flaming glass workshop!

Zoe Garner

Make yourself a part of Hylton Castle!

The Hylton Castle Project is hosting a number of flame working workshops at the National Glass Centre taught by artist Zoe Garner. In the workshops you will make glass rain drops which will become part of an illuminated glass sculpture on permanent display in Hylton Castle.

Each glass raindrop will hold DNA or living ashes from those taking part. You will be invited to provide a hair sample which you will encase in two glass droplets, one of which will form part of the sculpture and the other for you to take home. The final glass sculpture will be a ceiling mounted rain wall consisting of many clear glass rods and tubes, containing the DNA rain drops. The completed rain wall will be a visually stunning sculptural piece incorporating glass, light and sound in the newly re-developed Hylton Castle.

If you would like to include your DNA in the sculpture but are not able to take part in a workshop, please email elanor.johnson@sunderland.gov.uk or call 07774 823311

The workshops will run 10am-12.30pm or 1.30-4pm on the following dates:
Saturday 16th June
Sunday 17th June
Monday 18th June
Tuesday 19th June
Wednesday 20th June
