The show will run from the 16-30th September alongside the North Lands 20 Conference, which is being held at ECA on the 16-18th September. The Edinburgh College of Art Glass Department, within the School of Design is organising an ­­open, juried exhibition of ECA glass graduates, the work will be represented as large format photographic prints. The exhibition will showcase the wealth of talent that has emerged from the ECA Glass Department over the years.

Glass has been established at ECA for over 100 years, the postgraduate course is unique within Scotland and located at one of the few centres of excellence in this discipline in the UK. Comprehensive college-wide workshops including a state of the art digital fabrication lab and specific hot and cold glass studio facilities enable our students to experience a programme in the conception and production of glass to the highest level. We benefit from visiting professional practitioners and lecturers, and students have the opportunity to participate in live projects and competitions.

A digital catalogue will be produced to document and promote the exhibition.
