When we met late last year, we pencilled in this coming sunday for a second meeting, here, in my studio. I've only just yesterday returned from a few weeks abroad, so haven't been keeping up with anything CGS, but this meeting is going ahead! So far it's just me and Flip, but please do come and join us.
Flip has a quantity of toughened and laminated panels, one of which I've suggested she bring. I have a notion of a way to work these into interesting decorative pieces, so I'm hoping to break one up!

Our Collectomania exhibitions give visitors the chance to find out more about unusual collections and the interesting people who collect them. The latest Collectomania features Clive Manison, a glass enthusiast and historian who is particularly interested in how the Western world was influenced by Eastern cultures in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
