*The Whisky Bond (TWB) combines the creative buzz and identity of Glasgow Sculpture Studios (GSS); event spaces, artist studios and production facilities and workspaces for creative individuals and organisations such as architects and designers. In 2012 GSS moved premises to TWB, which was built in 1957 by Highland Distillers as a bonded warehouse. It operated as a bond until the 1970s then became a Mushroom Factory. Renovations to TWB building began in 2011 and since then it’s been transformed into a creative factory for Glasgow, a nerve centre providing a home to artists, a place for like-minded entrepreneurs to run a business, and an accessible venue for a wide audience to enjoy. The Whisky Bond joins the growing creative neighbourhood around Glasgow’s canal, including the National Theatre of Scotland, Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Scottish Opera and The Glue Factory. GSS occupies the lower three floors of TWB and includes artists’ studios, production facilities. There are over 40 studio spaces for artists and the production facilities include wood, metal, ceramics, plaster, resin and spray and digital production lab (3-D printer and scanner). Upper floors of The Whisky Bond house a range of work spaces for creative industry businesses, makers, architects and designers.
