Celebration Tree At Northlands Creative Glass
14th May 2016
Any seed when planted needs many things in order to flourish and grow.
North Lands Creative Glass was a seed sown in 1996 in the small fishing village of Lybster on the North east coast of Scotland and over the past 20 years the people and place of Lybster and Caithness have provided good fertile nourishment.
This year as part of our 20th anniversary celebrations and in partnership with the Lybster Gala committee who themselves will be commemorating 60 years of the Lybster Gala North Lands are running a project called Celebration tree
The project is asking everyone in the local community and to all those from the North Lands global glass community to help build a glass tree. A tree that from the root to the branch tip will be made up of individual fused glass tiles, each tile made by a different person. So if you have a connection with North Lands or with Lybster and would like to take part you are invited to make a glass leaf, a flower, nut, seed or fruit and send it from wherever you are in the world to North Lands to help build this tree of celebration.
The finished art work will be installed on the gable of the North Lands studio, unveiled during the gala weekend and remain on display over the summer months.
We are hosting a number of open evenings and an open weekend at out Studio in Lybster:
18 -20th May 6-8pm
21st-22nd May 11-4pm
