Glass Lab Edinburgh is a supportive community and has a well-equipped studio to help you realise your own creative development.  We have various levels of membership to accommodate your studio access needs: rent a table for a month, rent kilns for your firings, or rent equipment for just a few hours.

We have five flatbed kilns, a large sandblaster, a linisher, glass drill, and lots of other tools and equipment.

RENT EQUIPMENT

Rent by the hour, or discuss with us your needs.

 

You need to know how to use the machine.   If you have not been trained on a machine, please contact us to book a 1 to 1 induction (cost £20.00)

Our Guyson sandblaster can easily accommodate jobs both large and small.  The chamber is more than 1.5 m high, 1.2 m wide, and has a pass-through to accommodate even larger sheets.

Our water-fed Bohle glass drill has a range of diamond bits to drill a range of hole sizes in your glass.  Its long arm means holes can be drilled up to 50 cm from any edge. 

Our Bohle linisher is a premium machine that can be used to grind edges, and polish glass.  We have belts in the following grits: 80, 180, 200, 400 and cork.

Glass Lab has a range of diamond saws to use to cut otherwise impossible shapes in your glass!
