Half-term fun at the Red House Cone

There’s stacks to do at the Red House Glass Cone and Dudley Museum at the Archives this Whit week.

There’s a chance to make something in glass with bookable sessions throughout the week. These include glass fusion:toadstools and glass fusion: gnomes on Tuesday 29 and Thursday 31 May respectively. Sessions run four times a day and cost £5 per child. Fusion goes a step further with two sessions that fuse glass with other materials. These are paper inclusions and metal in glass, both on Saturday 2 June.

The cone’s popular family fun days make a return, this time with an animal day on Wednesday 30 May from 10.30 – 2.30. Come along, follow a trail, do a series of animal themed crafts and meet some critters, with visitors from Dudley Zoo, Greyhound Trust and Blacks Vets. The craft sessions cost £3 and there is no need to book.

There are free family trails available every day, suitable for the over 8s, including a Titanic trail which gets youngsters to look for Titanic themed clues around the site. Visitors can watch as glass artists transform a molten piece of glass into a glass, vase, platter or objet.
