In the current circumstances, many of our previously planned events have had to be cancelled or postponed. Instead, we have launched an imaginative series of ‘virtual’ activities which members of the Company are invited to join from the security of their own homes. This includes a series of webinars, also open to non-members. Details are circulated as more virtual events are confirmed and the programme will continue until more traditional events become possible. The revised programme for the remainder of the year is here.
Wednesday 18 November at 18:00 UK time: webininar – display and spectacle
Join us for the latest in our series of on-line seminars, this time bringing together experts from the US and UK on the theme of Display & Spectacle: Stained Glass in Exhibitions & Expositions.

The discussion will be led by Dr Jasmine Allen (Stained Glass Museum, Ely, UK), Dr Rolf Achilles (independent historian & Richard H Driehaus Museum) and Jennifer Thalheimer (Charles Hosmer Morse Museum), hosted by the Master, Suzanne Galloway and moderated by David Stringer-Lamarre.
