The National Glass Centre

The National Glass Centre in Sunderland celebrates a relationship with glass dating back to 674AD when Benedict Biscop brought glaziers from Gaul to the area to create the first known coloured glass window in the country.

Today, the centre provides training for artists and develops exhibitions to inspire and educate people about this extraordinary material.
