Ely Window Wanderland 2021
22 Oct. 2021 6pm-9pm - 24 Oct. 2021


Event category: Family Activity

Price: FREE (Friends: FREE)
Location: Ely
Window Wanderland is a fun family-friendly event where communities create illuminated displays in windows. You can use the street-facing windows of your home, business, school, nursery, car, shop, or even your door, or front garden. A map showing the locations of illuminated window displays is then created to form an after-dark walking trail and community event, transforming local streets into galleries.

Ely’s second Window Wanderland, organised by The Stained Glass Museum and Babylon ARTS will take place over the evenings of Friday 22, Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 October 2021. Everyone is encouraged to get involved by illuminating their street-facing windows between 6pm and 9pm, creating an after-dark walking trail of glowing windows.

How to get involved
Taking part is FREE and everyone is welcome. We would especially encourage resident families, local businesses, and community groups such as guides, brownies, scouts, to take part by creating an illuminated window display for this special event.

If you’re planning on transforming a window for Ely Window Wanderland please sign up on our Window Wanderland event page so that we can map participants on our website and create a local trail. Then get planning your window display!
Suitable for ages: All

Spooky Family Fusing
29 Oct. 2021 1330-1530


Event category: Family Activity

Price: 36.00 (pays for 3 places)
Location: The Stained Glass Museum
The session leader will explain the principles and theory of glass cutting, fusing and firing, explaining the various terms and stages used in fusing glass. The techniques you will be introduced to will include fusing clear and coloured glass using fritt, confetti, stringers, noodles and some metal inclusions, with special emphasis on the construction of designs. Young people will get to work with family members on their design and make small glass items of their choice, such as tiles, coasters, jewellery or decorative hangings. The session leader will provide examples of the different techniques, processes, fittings and results for participants to handle and examine, but the emphasis of the workshop will remain on the creative designs that the young people and their family members can achieve by themselves, ensuring that everyone will have a rewarding time.

Your glass will need to be kiln-fired after the workshop is finished. This process takes 24 hours and will usually takes place on the following day because someone needs to be on the premises during firing. Once your fused artwork has been kiln-fired and cooled, we will contact you to let you know it is ready for collection.

All young people must be accompanied by an adult for the duration of the workshop.

Ticket Price allows for unit of 3 people: that could be an adult and 2 children or 2 adults and a child.
Suitable for ages: 7+ (All the family)
