Cohesion is an initiative, supported by Sunderland City Council, which offers an unrivalled business support network for professional glassmakers.
The aim of Cohesion is to assist and support glass businesses and practitioners to develop their skills, to create new opportunities and to promote the quality and diversity of their work to wider markets'
We do this by encouraging individual artists to work together with others to explore markets and selling events that they may not otherwise be able to access as an individual. Working as a group helps keep costs down and lets makers try out new shows and events in a cost effective way.
Cohesion underpins this with practical advice and support, help with funding for the development of new work and an information service that keeps artists abreast of potential commissions, competitions and events.
