How can we best help support each other and how can CGS support you and your business just now?
We have a fabulous CGS glass community, and right now, having people online to talk to is going to really help all. We are probably all feeling isolated or removed from normal work and contact with people, so we would love you to use our resources like our new CGS Virtual Cafe (below!), to check in with each other, share any links on being self-employed, ask others if they have found any useful information or tips, and to share news.

Go and put the kettle on, pop a question in the comments box below, join in with #cgsvirtualcafe and let's get our amazing community chatting!

CALL FOR GLASS ARTISTS

"The Story of Sameness"- Deadline 19 Apr 2020

In a time of uncertainty and fear surrounding Covid-19, the virus, the CGS thought it would be constructive to set up a more frequent series of exhibitions, to engage and occupy our members. For this first exhibition, we are setting a challenge to you, to see how many variations of a round bowl our members can imagine!

This is an online show will only require an image of work, but photography must be of a good standard. Please either visit our 'PHOTOGRAPHY GUIDELINES' or speak to a professional photographer.

There will be 1 calendar month between each show and the 1st exhibition will be launched on Sunday 19th April 2020.

If you have any questions, please email Nicola at info@cgs.org.uk

We would really welcome international artists for this show too, so please share all these adverts and share across your social media platforms.

You can login here and submit your image.

To see previous exhibitions please visit our gallery exhibitions.

PLEASE NOTE: ANY PIECE SUBMITTED TO THE SHOW MUST NOT HAVE BEEN SHOWN IN ANOTHER CGS ONLINE SHOW.
