Making Marks Exhibition

An invitation from CGS to the Guild of Glass Engravers


The Contemporary Glass Society invited members of the Guild of Glass Engravers to take part in an online selected exhibition to run from 4th March 2024. 

The show, entitled Making Marks was an opportunity to highlight the amazing skills required to create the beauty of engraved glass.

This is part of CGS’s annual programme of 2 month long online exhibitions which are also selling exhibitions. 
CGS was delighted to have the opportunity to work with the Guild of Glass Engravers on this show. Work was selected by Trustees of both organisations and by our joint Patron, Mark Holford.
