The Glasshouse Project

Explore the history of Pilkington Glass and Doncaster's glassmaking heritage

The Glasshouse Project exhibition at The Gallery at The Point in Doncaster

6 February – 31 March 2023

The Glasshouse Project by Visual Artist Mandy Keating, explores 90 years of the little-known social and glassmaking heritage of Pilkington Glass in Doncaster, whilst celebrating those ‘ordinary’ people who worked for or had a connection with the factory; an homage to the glass, the designs and most of all the people.

The installation includes a collaborative 3D artwork inspired by the glass factory and its use of textures, pattern and colour created with local people, vibrant collaged portraits of people connected to Pilkington UK and large-scale black and white photographs from a rarely seen collection documenting the workers and factory.

Gallery at The Point opening times

Our Gallery is at the heart of the building and inspires children, families and adults to be creative – whether you are visiting independently or are taking part in the many activities that happen within the Gallery space. Click here for opening times.

All exhibitions are open to the public, but we do sometimes close the space for events, or you may visit at a time when creative activity is taking place so the space might be noisier than you expect!

Please do phone 01302 341662 before visiting to check what’s on – especially if you are travelling in to Doncaster.
