Since 1995, North Lands Creative has been a meeting place not only for glass artists but has also actively encouraged the participation of visual artists, architects and designers wishing to explore the technical and artistic potential of glass either on its own or in combination with other materials. They are situated in Lybster, a small fishing village in the far North Highlands. Their residency programme seeks to promote an atmosphere of creativity, experimentation and reflection which artists’ need, by providing a working environment that supports the artistic process and the facilities for artists to work and interact. The natural setting, the harbour and surrounding sea and landscape inspires, supports and enhances the creativity of the artists who come to Lybster, by providing them with an uninterrupted time for work and exploration.
For artists, North Lands Creative engenders a strong sense of community and the chance to create more opportunities for artist to artist and artist to public interaction. The campus offers on-site accommodation, a hot shop, cold shop, kiln room, sandblasting room, mould room and a community studio, garden and gallery.
