Response to the Coronavirus Pandemic


North Lands Creative is closed in response to the Coronavirus Pandemic to the public.

We are very sorry for any inconvenience caused to our loyal studio users, artists, members and audiences. We trust you understand that this situation is out of our control. We will keep you updated as the situation progresses via social media and our website.

The North Lands Creative team have been very touched by all your recent messages and we can ensure you that all the staff are safe, well and working remotely and still can be contacted on their individual emails. Unfortunately our office and studio phones will no longer be answered.

We are busy exploring the possibilities of a new programme, which you will be able to experience for free from the comfort of your own home. In the meantime, may we please encourage you to keep applying for our open call outs currently available, it will be a case of rescheduling opportunities and not cancelling. So please keep your applications coming in for Scholarships, Artist in Residencies, Glass Nexus Forum, Glass, Meet the Future Film Festival, Active Archive Project, ISGNE, Creative Retreat and Internships.

If you have booked for any activity that is cancelled we will be in touch to discuss this with you as soon as possible. We will review bookings and our programme on a week-to-week basis so please don’t worry if you haven’t heard from us about something further in the future – we will be in touch once we know whether the activity is going ahead.

We would also like to hear your ideas on how the glass community can stay safely connected and supported during this difficult period.

Stay safe and we will see you soon.
