About Talk on Making Glass in Scotland

Friends of the Smith Winter Lecture Series
Talk on "Making Glass in Scotland" by Dr Jill Turnbull

The first patent to make glass in Scotland was granted in 1610, and a large amount of high quality glass was produced over the next 400 years. The last table glass was made here in 2006, although over two million bottles a day are still produced in Alloa.

Dr Jill Turnbull has been researching and recording the industry for the past 25 years and is very keen to demonstrate that not all good glass was made in Stourbridge! She will discuss some of the material she has found and show samples of the glass that was produced here.

Talks starts at 7.30pm, doors open at 7pm
Tickets at the door £5 (£4 for Friends), includes tea/coffee and biscuits


While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Talk on Making Glass in Scotland are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
