Contemporary Glass Discovery Day at Edinburgh University
Join the Contemporary Glass Society (CGS) and the Scottish Glass Society (SGS) this September for the latest in our series of Discovery Days being held around the UK. Open to all who are interested in glass, this promises to be an inspiring day all about this wonderful medium.
The Discovery Day takes place at Edinburgh University on Friday 8 September 2023. Participants will hear from three fantastic glass artists based in Scotland, who will talk about their work, as well as an international artist who will present via Zoom.
In addition, there will be demonstrations and a tour of the Edinburgh College of Art studios.
This is an unparalleled opportunity to meet the artists and find out about their journeys with glass, as well as to chat with others who share a passion for contemporary glass.
