Look to your left as you enter the National Glass Centre, and you will see some of the work young people made with glass artists, a project funded by the Gillian Dickinson Trust.  Eight groups of young people, from schools and youth organisations, worked with four artists and their assistants to make glass art for their school or youth group building as well as lots of smaller pieces which they could take home to keep.

This is one of the pieces made by the group from Springwell Dene Academy.  They spend one day a week at forest school in nearby woods, and the inspiration from this piece comes from things they found in the woods - animal footprints, bones, leaves. Note the cast glass spoons for cooking on the camp fire.

The project exhibition was formally launched along with NGC's autumn show, Magdalene Odundo's stunning Transition II and Metamorphosis & Transformation.
