Home Shop Discussion Day Discussion Day 2023
We are planning an exciting Discussion Day on Friday 22nd September at Glaziers Hall around the relationship between stained glass and architecture. We will focus on overcoming the threats to stained glass window making and how to maximise opportunities.
We will begin with an interactive session on designing and cartooning for windows led by Rachel Mulligan. There will be a Questions and Answers session on Site-work Health and Safety led with some Steve Clare. Matthew Lloyd-Winder will share some of his innovative resin techniques. Our guest speaker Sophie Hacker will give an artist’s perspective on working in architectural settings and collaborating with studios to fabricate designs. We will also be joined by Richard Proto, from Proto Glass Studios, who’s skilled craftworkers use cutting edge techniques to realise the artist’s vision for large scale projects including screen printing, kiln formed glass, mirroring and digital printing on glass.
Primarily aimed at practicing glass artists, students and those in the early stages of their stained glass careers, the Discussion Day is open to everyone with an interest in stained glass, from traditional to contemporary and from conservation to innovation. It is a chance to see some fascinating work and hear directly from the speakers about their practice.
There is an opportunity to network with other practitioners and attending the event can lead to useful contacts being made.
Tea and coffee are provided but not lunch. There are many wonderful places to eat in nearby Borough Market.
The British Society of Master Glass Painters is very grateful to the Worshipful Company of Glaziers for hosting the event.
Friday 22 September 10.30-4.30 at Glaziers Hall. Tickets £34 for members, £40 for non-members for the whole day.
