Current guidance restricts the studio to 6 artists working in the studio at any one time, however, Glasgow Glass Studio are able to accommodate a group of 12 visitors respecting social distancing and COVID-19 safety measures.

Glasgow Glass Studio will be opening its doors to allow budding glass artists, glass lovers or people interested in craft, to see how a working glass studio operates.

This is also an ideal opportunity for secondary school art & design classes to visit and enhance their syllabus delivery.

A few of their artists are involved in working with schools and will enjoy walking pupils through the design and making process.

Witness work in progress, from private commissions, artists exhibition work and restoration projects. See demonstrations of the many processes involved with creating art glass, such as leaded and painted panels, fused and cast glass, and etched glass. The studio's artists will be glad to guide you through their processes.

Hands-on sessions will also feature throughout the week, so you too can experience cutting or assembling glass.

Come and see how an age-old traditional craft is delivering contemporary art.
