An exhibition of the best of contemporary glass engraving, showcasing the artistry of the Guild of Glass Engravers. The Guild, which is the only organisation devoted to this art form and counts internationally-renowned artists amongst its numbers, was founded in 1975 by a small group of British engravers and promotes the highest standards of creative design and craftsmanship in glass engraving.
