Glass Making Workshops

Saturday 17th and 24th February 2024

As part of NI Science Festival, Positive Carrickfergus teamed up with Carrickfergus museum to run two fantastic glass making workshops facilitated by local artist, Brian Morgan. 

The sessions began with an exploration of the museum’s collections to see some historic examples of glass, images and techniques that would inspire the participants creations. 

Over the two weeks we had an opportunity to learn how to cut glass, learn how it is fused and to develop decorative painting and sgraffito techniques. 

We were so pleased to welcome a mix of Carrickfergus residents and people who had travelled from further afield for this workshop and to see their gorgeous glass they will be taking home with them. Hopefully we will see them again at our upcoming workshops and events!
