Make a donation to North Lands Creative.

Since its inception in 1995, North Lands Creative has become a cultural landmark to the international glass community. It has been a meeting place for glass artists, ceramicists, painters, sculptors, architects and designers and those who wish to explore the technical and artistic potential of glass either on its own or in combination with other materials.

Every year we engage with class leaders and professional artists and students from all parts of the world through our gallery, studio, artistic and educational programs; through specialised workshops, masterclasses, artist talks and more. These programs help our audiences to discover and explore the world of creativity, and also support the development of artist’s careers.

Whether it’s participating in our Master-led workshops or listening to an artist talk about their work at our International conference, we’re here to introduce audiences to new ideas.

North Lands Creative policy of offering facilities for the creation and enjoyment of arts has seen some of the most vulnerable in our community find a space to explore and build their confidence and skills in a safe, encouraging environment.

UK supporters make your donation go even further without costing you a penny! Gift Aid is one of the simplest and most effective ways of giving to charity. Gift aid is tax relief on money donated to UK charities. UK charities are entitled to 28% tax reclaim from the Inland Revenue on every £1 donated by UK taxpayers. This allows us to claim 25p for every £1 that you donate – as long as you pay at least that amount in tax and give the charity permission to claim. The Gift Aid guidelines require a Gift Aid Declaration Form to be completed to ensure North Lands Creative has the data we need to be able to claim Gift Aid on a donation.

Your donation will make a big difference. Thank you!
