Welcome to Make It Glasgow

Make It Glasgow (MIG) Community Interest Company is a social benefit, not for profit business. Through making and learning with clay we aim to strengthen individual and community identity allowing people to connect and build community around the heritage of industrial ceramic production in Scotland. Our process explores local industrial pottery heritage and shared clay stories to inspire and develop new creative projects and build relationships. We co-create projects which help build skills, confidence and improve our environment, creating a sense of local self-esteem and belonging. Our ambition is to establish a ceramics manufacturing base and Scottish Pottery Museum at Stockingfield Bridge Ceramic Art Park reviving industrial ceramics skills and providing applications for contemporary ceramic learning, offering training and job opportunities and creative networking both nationally and internationally. We are situated at Stockingfield Bridge Ceramic Art Park. Stockingfield Bridge is a brand-new, award-winning piece of infrastructure in North Glasgow reconnecting Maryhill, Ruchill and Gilshochill. The developing ceramic park is a place where engineering meets arts, meets community, rooted in the history and heritage of industrial pottery making in the local area.

Donate a community Beithir Scale Making Experience

We want everyone in our community regardless of income or ability, to benefit from participating in making Beithir scales at Stockingfield Ceramic Art Park. Are you or your organisation able to support our local scale making?  Can you ‘pay it forward’ and contribute towards the cost of welcoming members of the community to create with us who might need a bit of support to participate? For example it costs us £150 per scale to host a learning experience for 2 people. Or could you sponsor a youth or community group of 12 people to participate and create 6 scales. This would cost £900. Your contribution would include artist tuition, refreshments, materials, a participation gift of a ‘I Scaled the Beithir Certificate’ and badge, and installation costs for the scale to go on the Beithir plus a wee bit towards our core costs. As a note of appreciation, we will send you a digital, ‘I Scaled the Beithir Certificate’ and a named dedication on ‘Who Scaled the Beithir?’ website page (subject to permission given) so you have a record of your contribution towards creating the Beithir, Scotland’s largest community artwork. And you’ll always be welcome to visit! You can pay it forward by clicking any amount listed below.
