North Lands Creative Glass was established in 1995 to stimulate the growing interest in glass as an art form. The centre’s facilities include a general & mould area, hot shop, kiln room, sand-blasting room, air powered grinding tools, a lamp-working station and a cold working and finishing shop. Truly a hub for creative glass innovation, North Lands Creative Glass has also made various improvements to the workshops that benefit the artists using them, as well as the environment.

Creative Carbon Scotland is a partnership of arts organisations working to put culture at the heart of a sustainable Scotland. We believe cultural and creative organisations have a significant influencing power to help shape a sustainable Scotland for the 21st century.
In 2011 we worked with partners Festivals Edinburgh, the Federation of Scottish Threatre and Scottish Contemporary Art Network to support over thirty arts organisations to operate more sustainably.
We are now building on these achievements and working with over 70 cultural organisations across Scotland in various key areas including carbon management, behavioural change and advocacy for sustainable practice in the arts.
Our work with cultural organisations is the first step towards a wider change. Cultural organisations can influence public behaviour and attitudes about climate change through:
Changing their own behaviour;
Communicating with their audiences;
Engaging the public’s emotions, values and ideas.
