Northlands Creative Glass

Posted in Craft Thoughts, Travels by Kate Jones on September 9, 2009


This is an image taken at Whaligoe steps. Just the colours as the lense saw them. Very appropriate as I had just been on my annual pilgrimage to the conference at Lybster. This year the conference theme was colour and transparency. As usual there were good speakers, good conversation, an eclectic diverse and interesting group of people, brought together by an interest in the material that is glass. Northlands is a long way, but everytime I make the effort I return, rejuvenated, having learned a great deal about a great many things, including myself… and with a real sense of a community.

      It was good, despite the sudden death of
      Dan Klein, who was instrumental in establishing Northlands and who organised the theme and speakers for this years conference.
      The celebration of his life on the Saturday was a fitting tribute to his steadying hand, influence and support for all who work creatively with glass.
      Northlands is quite a legacy to leave.

      thinking about coming next year ?
