Case Study

Philippa Whiteside

The facilities at the National Glass Centre attracted 22-year-old Philippa Whiteside to the University of Sunderland. After graduating in 2010 with a BA (Hons) Glass and Ceramics, Philippa went on to a scholarship at Creative Cohesion. She now runs her own business and studio space in Sunderland.

The facilities and 9am to 9pm access to the workshops were great. I really enjoyed making friends and having the freedom to experiment with ideas and materials - it was fantastic to have the opportunity to use the water jet cutter.

I am a hard worker and taking advantage of the facilities and access hours on offer at the University has really helped me gain the ceramic skills I have today."
