The Glue Factory

The Glue Factory is an independent arts venue and workspace situated in the Spiers Locks area of Glasgow.

The Glue Factory is an independent arts venue and workspace situated at Speirs Wharf in North Glasgow.

The organisation was founded in 2011 as a non-profit community interest company by a committee of people working across art, design, architecture, music and event production.

The building is a cavernous industrial warehouse containing a sprawling and diverse collection of spaces. From white walled galleries to decommissioned glue vats, the building has a rich history and raw beauty that make it an exciting venue for bold and ambitious projects, exhibitions and events.

Roughly 25% of the building is dedicated to providing affordable workspace for artists and creative businesses and houses a variety of studios including a professional screen printing studio for paper and fabric, Risograph print and design studio, furniture workshop and a sound design studio.

The Glue Factory now sits alongside some of Scotland’s major cultural institutions – the National Theatre of Scotland, Scottish Opera, the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Glasgow Sculpture Studios and workspaces such as The Whisky Bond and Grey Wolf Studios.
