DJURSLAND’S LARGEST BEADED PICTURE
We have invited all children to join us in making Djursland’s largest beaded picture during Summer. Read more below.
In connection with our summer exhibition “No Strings – Beads in a Modern Context”, all children visiting the museum were invited to join us in making Djursland’s largest beaded picture. The beaded designs made by the children were regularly sorted by glass artist, Micha Karlslund, into a huge picture inspired by flowering apple trees.
You will be able to see the final result at ‘Ny Malt’ during the Ebelfestival until 20th October 2019.
A warm thanks to the many visitors, who have created and donated beaded designs for us throughout summer!

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.
