56° Collective is a group of artists and designers based in Angus, Scotland. We came together through a shared love of making, creating and a desire to generate opportunities to engage with folk who like the kind of stuff we make. We do this by organising pop-up galleries, running workshops and initiating activities to engage with the wider community.
Our activities are inclusive and we positively encourage other makers to get in touch about getting involved in future events – we want to create opportunities for artists to come together, to work together, to learn together and to sell together.
My work is mainly making Traditionally Crafted Stained Glass Windows, Door Panels, Hanging Panels and Stair Windows. I hot paint and fire details onto glass; I can etch and fuse glass to produce unique effects for any project you can dream of.
I make glass for gardens, water features, glass for fire screens, glass for most locations, inside and outside the home, the potential is endless.
