Glass Blowing Taster Sessions

Experience the magic of glass during this half day taster workshop in the North Lands Creative Hot Shop.

Our highly skilled artists will guide you in drawing molten glass from the furnace, before it is blown and shaped into unique objects of art. Experiment with form and colour as you are guided in making a beautiful hanging glass bauble or colourful paperweight.

The session will last for approximately two and a half hours and is perfect for those looking to try glass blowing for the first time.

All skill levels are welcome, no experience necessary.

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.

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.
