About this Event

Join us at The Whisky Bond for an afternoon of tours around The Glasgow School of Art Archives and Collections, The Alasdair Gray Archive, Glasgow Sculpture Studios and The Distillery co-working space to explore each organisations’ unique spaces and collections. Visitors can attend all tours or can choose to join a specific tour or tours on the day. Either way, we look forward to welcoming you!

The Glasgow School of Art Archives & Collections

The Glasgow School of Art’s Archives and Collections are a rich resource for the study of art, design, architecture and art education. Our holdings illustrate the history of the institution and the development of its teaching practices since it was established in 1845. Join us for a behind-the-scenes tour of our Reading Room and Collections Stores to get a sense of the breadth and depth of our holdings and learn how they are managed and used.

The Alasdair Gray Archive

The Alasdair Gray Archive was established in March 2020 after Alasdair Gray’s death in late December 2019. The Archive exists to enhance the reputation and understanding of one of Scotland’s most significant cultural polymaths of the 20th century, and through his legacy support others. When you visit the Archive it is like walking into Alasdair’s front room with all the objects & items that surrounded him, many of which feature in his work. All this material is held here for research & learning purposes. When you visit you will be able to handle original artworks, prints, publications, transcripts and ephemera.

Glasgow Sculpture Studios

Glasgow Sculpture Studios is home to a vibrant community of artists working in contemporary sculptural practice. Come along for a behind-the-scenes tour of the largest art production facility in Scotland, with specialist facilities in metalwork, woodwork, plaster, resin, ceramics and digital fabrication. We support one of the largest communities of artists in Scotland with over 120 artist-members. Our tour gives you a rare opportunity to learn how contemporary sculpture is made!

The Distillery

The Distillery on the 3rd floor is a dedicated coworking space for freelancers, start-ups and creatives who require flexible, professional workspace. It will be open after the tours for refreshments and a look around its facilities.
