Hot Glass Residency Opportunity

HOT GLASS RESIDENCY: 1 April to 10 May 2013

Deadline: 16 November 2012

North Lands Creative Glass is offering a six week residency for four talented artists working in hot glass. We are looking for artists who have an interest in exploring new forms of making, or ways of working, through collaboration. The residency will offer the opportunity to create work and collaborate with other artists while also developing new techniques and ideas. This opportunity will allow you to enhance your own practice while working within a peer group to share and gain further skills. Artists-in-residence benefit from a comprehensive range of facilities in the Alastair Pilkington Studio.

The selection panel will make the residency awards by 14 December 2012

This residency is supported by Creative Scotland.
This opportunity is open to artists worldwide.

And into Autumn….

The 2012 Master Class and Conference programme feels both a distant memory and just like yesterday, things haven’t stopped since then and we currently have Amanda Simmons here for a 3-day Skills Class in Kiln Formed Glass Vessels, but that’s another post…

This year saw a great Master Class programme:
26 August – 6 September
‘From the Outside In’ with Angela Jarman
‘Give and Take’ with Jacqueline Poncelet

11 – 19 September
‘What’s the Big Idea…Sand Casting’ with Paul Marioni
‘Painting in the Space of Glass’ with Susan Sinsmuehlen-Amend

The Conference was exceptional, the theme was ‘Give and Take’ and featured a diverse range of speakers – the full programme is listed here.

It was a  wonderfully collaborative event this year as we worked with Scottish Glass Society and Contemporary Glass Society as part of the UK-wide event Glass Games 2012, celebrating the spirit of the London 2012 Olympics. We were also pleased to host the Scottish Glass Society Annual Exhibiton, this year on the theme of Cultural Exchange, and to be the final destination on the journey of the Glass Games Glass Baton
