The CGS 2020 Business Booster Course

CGS teams up with the highly professional Design Trust to offer business help to glass makers.

This online course is aimed at both new and more established glass artists who want to develop their business and marketing skills, make more sales, improve their presentation and upgrade their level of professionalism.

Running from 13th February through to 2nd April 2020


CGS are raising funds for a new website

Thanks to the generosity of many of our established makers and the help of Will Farmer at Fieldings Auction House Stourbridge, we have raised a substantial sum towards the cost of the new CGS website.

However some pieces did not reach their reserve and are still available.


Sponsored by Mark Holford and Alan J Poole

The show has finished at the Ruskin Centre, but unsold work will be on the CGS website very soon

The theme for the International Festival of Glass is Place Making so CGS has decided that our place will be out of this world!
