The next meeting of the South West Branch will be on Sunday 31st January. Our meetings are open to all members and anyone who is interested in finding out more about glass engraving. The next talk will be by Amanda Lawrence Fellow of the Guild who is coming to tell us all about her latest work inspired by the countryside of the Slad Valley near her home. Do come and join us at the village hall in West Buckland, Somerset (just off Junction 26 of the M5).  
Meetings begin at 11am and usually end around 3pm. Bring a packed lunch but light refreshments are provided. We are also interested in seeing any finished work or work in progress and you may like to bring your drill. For further details contact Sue Burne or Rob Page  
The branch is also looking forward to the planned exhibition in Durlston Country Park on the glorious Jurassic coast next Easter. The gallery has a fabulous sea view and will be an amazing venue to show off glass engraving.   If you are in the Bedford area Sue Burne’s latest commission (a 3 panel internal vestry window) has just been installed in the Church of St. Thomas in Clapham, Bedfordshire (not the Clapham in London).
The Branch is growing and has recently gained several new members. The next Branch workday will be on the 31st January. All are welcome to attend and if you would like more information please contact me on Burnecrafts@aol.com
