SGS & CGS Discovery Day at Edinburgh College of Art Friday 8th Sept 2023

An inspiring day when you will meet like-minded artists and discover their glass passion and journeys.

Member and Student rates available.

Unfortunately this event was cancelled at short notice due to issues at ECA which were beyond the control of SGS and CGG. We are arranging to hold Zoom sessions in January and February 2024 with the same speakers and information will be sent to SGS members soon on how to participate. Thank for your understanding.

The Contemporary Glass Society (CGS) has joined with the Scottish Glass Society (SGS) to celebrate the diverse and stunning work of Scottish based contemporary glass artists. Both SGS and CGS are organisations that are passionate about reaching out to as many people as possible, to educate and inform and provide access to the remarkable experience that is the amazing material of glass.

Our ambition in 2023 is not only to continue to encourage, inspire and educate glass artists throughout the UK but also to take contemporary glass into the community. This is happening through a series of “Expanding Horizons” Discovery Days where we invest in developing talent and improve the quality of what both societies can offer to people.

Speakers include

Juli Bolaños-Durman, Dr Choi Keeryong & Koen Vanmechelen
