Eleanor Morgan presents her Glass Delusions exploring the organic and inorganic and for this research day brings together artist Dr. Shelley James and scientist Professor Anson Mackay to discuss and demonstrate the historical, contemporary and natural techniques of glass.
There will be an opportunity to view the Glass Delusions exhibition.
Lunch and refreshments will be served throughout the day.
