Photographic prints of alumni work will be shown alongside a selection of historical artifacts, documents and artworks from the ECA Glass archive collection. The exhibition will showcase the wealth of talent, which has emerged over the years from the department.

The show will run from the 16-30th September alongside the North Lands 20 Conference, which is being held at ECA on the 16-18th September. A preview event will be held on Thursday the 22nd of September 6-8pm at ECA.

Glass has been established at ECA for over 100 years, the postgraduate course is unique within Scotland and located at one of the few centres of excellence in this discipline in the UK. Comprehensive college-wide workshops including a state of the art digital fabrication lab and specific hot and cold glass studio facilities enable our students to experience a programme in the conception and production of glass to the highest level. We benefit from visiting professional practitioners and lecturers, and students have the opportunity to participate in live projects and competitions.
