THE GLASS FOREST

A SENSORY EXPERIENCE FOR CHILDREN AND ADULTS

Experience glass and its many qualities in new ways, which involves several of the senses.

With bare feet and with your eyes out on stalks explore, touch, magnify and discover new ways of looking at glass. With all the senses awakened curiosity will come to life. 

You can learn more about glass and the glass items in the Glass Forest on the digital information stands outside the room.

The Glass Forest has been created by set designer, Marie Chemnitz, and theatre instructor, Tue Biering.

The Glass Forest has kindly been supported by Nordea-fonden.

WORLD OF GLASS

A WHOLE FLOOR OF FUN AND FACTS

The World of Glass is a whole floor of digital fun and facts on glass. It is an interactive learning centre, where children and adults can go on a journey of discovery amongst glass eyes and light-bulbs, films about the history of glass, its uses and glassmaking techniques.

A number of digital and physical elements explain some of the many exciting facts about glass and glassmaking. One of these elements is “The Digital Glass Blower”, which allows visitors to experience glassmaking “hands on”.

The World of Glass is a flexible space, which can easily be transformed into a space for lectures or minor exhibitions.

The World of Glass has been developed in cooperation with Hans Thyge & co, Yoke interactive design and Syncro. It has been financed by Arbejdsmarkedets Feriefond.
