Northlands Creative Glass
Photograph of North Lands Creative GlassNorth Lands Creative Glass is situated in Lybster, a small fishing village on the North East Coast of Scotland. It was born in the nineties out of a need to create a centre of excellence to stimulate the growing interest in the possibilities of glass as an art form. North Lands is open both to glass artists and to painters, sculptors, architects and designers wishing to explore the technical and artistic potential of glass either on its own or in combination with other materials. Through its programme of summer masterclasses, its annual conference, its residencies and its community outreach workshops, North Lands aims to stimulate a lively exchange of ideas whilst also allowing time for reflection and action in a professional environment.
