These will provide University of Ulster students with an opportunity for a hands-on introduction to both ‘Lamp Working’ and ‘Glass Blowing’ techniques.

In addition, 5th and 6th form pupils from all schools in Moyle, Limavady, Ballymoney and Coleraine Council areas with an interest in an art college further education can gain an insight into an arts career, both from the perspective of the artists and students. Informal viewing will also be available.
