North Lands Creative Glass was established in 1995 as international centre of excellence in glass making, encouraging collaboration with other artforms. The inspiration came from Robert Maclennan (MSP) in collaboration with Dan Klein, one of the world’s experts in studio glass, and Professor Keith Cummings of the University of Wolverhampton. The first master class was given in 1996 by Bertil Vallien. Since then artists such as Tessa Clegg; Irene Frolic; Mieke Groot; Richard Meitner; Klaus Moje; Joel Philip Myers; Dante Marioni; Richard Marquis; Jan Erik Ritzman; Paul Stankard and Ann Wolff. have figured among course leaders. In July 2002 the Pilkington Studio, designed and developed by Elizabeth Swinburne, was opened by H.R.H. Prince Charles. 2014 sees the opening of a new Studio workshop space and new residential accommodation.
