Welcome to the Worshipful Company of Glaziers & Painters of Glass


COVID-19 Government Advice & Risk Assessment: Like many organisations, we have modified our programme of events for the time being, and some meetings and new events will take place virtually. We will also continue to post updates and news here on our website and on Social Media.

Stevens 2020 Competition Important Announcement

In the light of the increasing restrictions on meetings and movement of goods in both the UK and mainland Europe due to the spread of the Covid-19 virus, it has become necessary to postpone the programme for the 2020 Stevens Competition.  We have also amended the rules to allow entrants who have been unable to complete their work because of COVID-19 restrictions to submit partially completed work.  Full details are available here.

The Glaziers’ Company is one of the ancient Livery Companies of the City of London. It dates from the 14th century (click here for a brief history). Today its members play a full role in the civic life of the City of London and enjoy valuable networking and social opportunities.

Through its charity, The Glaziers Foundation, it supports education and conservation, and all its activities are devoted to promoting the art and craft of stained glass.
