Located in the wild and dramatic landscape of Caithness on the North East Coast of Scotland, North Lands Creative is one of the world’s most prestigious centres for the study and development of glass as an artform, providing excellent facilities, opportunities and inspiration to artists working with glass from all over the world.

North Lands Creative has supported brave, creative and amazing ideas since 1995. From the beginning North Lands Creative has been a meeting place not only for glass artists but has also actively encouraged the participation of visual artists, architects and designers wishing to explore the technical and artistic potential of glass either on its own or in combination with other materials. International in outlook, its users, contributors and participants come from the local area and the rest of Scotland, the UK and beyond.

North Lands Creative is the UK’s premier glass studio; an independent and ambitious organisation on the peripheral part of Europe with a local, national and international remit. We are a home for contemporary studio glass, a producing studio, a resource for artists and a critical hub for international glass making. North Lands Creative works with artists across all art forms to make and present extraordinary work that inspires and provokes audiences.
