Showcase: IYP Glassworks
Join us on Slow Boat for a showcase of glass artworks by Ikon Youth Programme (IYP), in collaboration with artists Morgan Stockton and Yhonnie Scarce. Moored up near Chance Glassworks, Slow Boat acts as a temporary home for these works, produced by IYP in the hot glass workshop at Wolverhampton School of Art.
Slow Boat is supported by Freelands Foundation.
Slow Boat will be moored up on the Birmingham Canal opposite the Chance Glassworks site. This is accessible via the canal cycleway entrance next to Spring Road Industrial Estate.
