Wednesday 1 June 9.45am–4pm
Venue: Glaziers Hall, 9 Montague Close, London SE1 9DD
‘Stained Glass in Contemporary Culture – exploring creative partnerships to generate and sustain new work’
Speakers: Andrew Moor, Sasha Ward, Teepee Glass, and Helga Reay-Young
The annual BSMGP Discussion Day, whilst open to all, is particularly intended for stained glass practitioners; student, amateur and professional, giving an opportunity to meet and exchange ideas based on a program of topical presentations.
The program is planned by Caroline Swash FMGP, former head of the PgCert Glass course at Central Saint Martins, herself an experienced teacher and practitioner, draws together a mix of speakers, all successful contemporary glass artists, who will explore the ways in which collaboration can enable and enhance new work. With the loss of so many large studios, increasingly artists work in isolation meaning that such relationships between artist and client, artist and a larger studio or affiliation to a group of likeminded individuals becomes pivotal to their success.
The day is kindly hosted by the Worshipful Company of Glaziers, the day after their annual Stevens Competition Prize Giving, in the hope that as many students as possible will take the opportunity to attend whilst in London.
Tickets are £25 or for students and tutors £15 including sandwich lunch.
