read about our developments and plans as north lands creative looks towards the future

Since opening in 1995, North Lands Creative has been a distinctive and special place, and an important resource as a Centre of Excellence for Glass, the arts and for audiences in the region – as well as being a significant force in the national and international glass world. 


As we look forward to our 25th anniversary, I’m delighted to welcome the support of government, community and third sector funding. Their generous support will enable us to complete the redevelopment and renovation of our facilities by improving our digital capabilities as well as the development of our physical spaces, which will create new opportunities for our region and create a vibrant meeting place for all.


The support we have received from our funders demonstrates their commitment to North Lands Creative and our place in the cultural life of Caithness and nationally. I wish to thank them, and Creative Scotland, for all they have done to ensure we have so much to look forward to in the years ahead and I cannot wait to welcome back our artists, audiences and visitors to enjoy and experience all that we have to offer.


As we re-open our campus, we are are re-introducing activities step by step, staying midful  to the Scottish Government guidelines for creative studios and shared workspaces during the covid-19 pandemic.

We look forward to welcoming you back to you this very special place, thank you for your patience and understanding.


Help us keep open so we can help you to keep making.
