As a secondary school art teacher (2001-15) I am happy to teach anyone of secondary age. My youngest glass attendee was 8 and has been with her mum for a day out with a difference making glass bunting. Although I have an enhanced DBR check I request that a parent remains with any young person coming on a workshop.
