We are delighted to announce that acclaimed glass artist Peter Layton will be giving our annual lecture in memory of founder of Bluecoat Display Centre, Robert Gardner-Medwin. Peter's illustrated talk will coincide with his solo exhibition at Bluecoat Display Centre, celebrating 35 years of the London Glassblowing Studio which he founded. Peter Layton is one of the world's most widely respected glass artists and he has done more to promote glassmaking as an art form than anyone else in Europe. He has influenced, encouraged and nurtured several of the UK's leading glassmakers and has inspired many more internationally. At the age of 75, Peter remains extremely active in his field and is regarded as the ‘grand old man of glass'. For further information and tickets please contact us via email at, by telephone on 0151 709 4014 or by visiting the gallery in person.
