Yesterday I had a gam packed whale of a time day spent in Sunderland and Newcastle, and made plenty of stop offs at the Sunderland Museum and winter gardens, The National glass centre, The Baltic and the Biscuit Factory!

Along the way I saw plenty of different exhibitions, including the   Sunderland Book Project exhibition, which was filled up of plenty of colour, text and textured papers all into little handmade books which were beautifully put together.

The Sunderland museum is the best place ever, you can’t go wrong with giant fish, animals, dinosaurs and a Jurassic park inspired giant garden dome as well as a bit of paper art!

The highlight of the glass centre was seeing the university of Sunderland BA(hons) glass and ceramics show. The layout and space of the work was amazing!


We ended our day in the Biscuit Factory where I was able to find lots of inspirational artists, and treat myself to the cutest house brooch from Amos Denton Designs!
