CHILDREN looking for fun half-term activities in the borough are invited to explore their natural creativity at Stourbridge Glass Museum which is hosting a workshop celebrating UK wildlife.

On Saturday February 25, children will be able to get arty in an origami animals workshop, with designs inspired by Georgia Redpath’s glass-based exhibition Nature | Architecture, which is currently on display at the visitor attraction in Camp Hill. All materials will be provided and the craft activity is covered in the admission fee.

The museum, which launched last Easter, is also inviting people from across the Black Country to enjoy a late winter day out by combining world-class exhibits and displays with relaxing canal walks and comforting food from local cafes and restaurants.

The museum is open on Thursday, Friday and Saturday during half-term week.

The wildlife-themed session forms part of an initiative between the museum and The Wild Escape - a major national project aimed at honouring UK wildlife and creativity.

In addition to watching live glass blowing in Allister Malcolm’s Hot Shop, which is attached to Stourbridge Glass Museum, visitors can journey through 400 years of local glassmaking history and experience the marvels of Georgia Redpath’s visiting exhibition.

Museum manager Alexander Goodger said: “There’s so much to see at the museum, from real time glass making, which always ‘blows people away’, and the world-class Stourbridge Glass Collection, to interactive activities that enable people to make their own digital glass designs - as well as our crafty new partnership with The Wild Escape.

“When you combine all this with a walk along our heritage-rich canals and some comforting local Black Country food, there’s scope for a fantastic school holiday day out. It’s also worth noting that the museum is dog friendly, so you’re welcome to bring your pooch for a mooch among the exhibits too.”

Entry to Stourbridge Glass Museum is £4 for adults and £2 for children.

Family tickets, based on two adults and two children, are £10.

Tickets for students and seniors cost £3, while access is free for Universal Credit claimants.
