The Whisky Bond, 2 Dawson Road, Glasgow
We are the largest art production facility in Scotland, with specialist workshops in metalwork, woodwork, plaster, resin, ceramics and digital fabrication. We also provide studio space for artists working in these media and more, exploring what sculpture means today.
We have a technical team who provide support to workshop users and we run a specialist fabrication service, making work for a variety of clients in the arts, architecture and design.
Access is at the heart of everything we do. As well as providing affordable access to specialist skills and production space for professional artists and makers, we share our facilities and creative and technical skills with wider groups of people through our learning and engagement programme.
We build and strengthen relationships between our artists, our communities, and our local partners and aim to provide services that are meaningful, relevant and responsive to the needs of all of our users.
We are located at the Whisky Bond on the banks of the Forth and Clyde Canal. As the anchor tenant in the building and one of the first arts organisations to move into the area we continue to play an important role in developing this vibrant creative industries hub in North Glasgow. We are active members of the Canal Co-operative, a network of local organisations established to work collectively to unlock the potential of the Glasgow Canal area and create a vibrant neighbourhood for people to live, work and visit.
GSS also has strong links with similar organisations across the country, and we are a member of Scotland’s Workshops.
