Glass World

NGC Gallery
14 October 2023 – 10 March 2024

In recent years National Glass Centre has developed a permanent collection of international Studio Glass that includes work by artists from or based in thirty different countries, from Sweden to New Zealand and the United States to Japan. This exhibition presents a wide selection of the works held in our collection and creates an opportunity to celebrate the international reach of artists working in glass.

Update to visitors  

As you may be aware, National Glass Centre visitor centre has recently been closed due to storm damage to the riverside front of the building. 

However, we’re delighted to say that we are now open!   

Things will be a little bit different for a while as we continue to address the storm damage to the riverside front of the building. But our team has worked hard to make changes so that we can offer visitors a packed programme of exhibitions, events, activities and shopping.  

Please read our reopening information before your visit.
