A WEARSIDE attraction is hosting demonstrations of glass making.

The National Glass Centre, in St Peter’s, Sunderland, will hold the glass lathe demonstrations on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays at 12.35 and 3.35pm.

The events, which see glassmakers demonstrate the use of a lathe to shape a glass vessel over an open flame, are free. On weekends in November and December, there will be no afternoon demonstrations of lathe work.

There are daily glass blowing demonstrations at noon and 3pm and flameworking at 11am and 2pm.
