700 years of the Glaziers’ Company

Glaziers’ G700 Project


The written records of The Glaziers’ Company go back to 1328. In 2028, we’ll be celebrating our seven-hundredth anniversary and The Glaziers700 Project (G700) is now under way: help us to shape the future of our historic Livery Company. G700 has three main project strands

Charity and Philanthropy


The Glaziers’ charity, The Glaziers’ Foundation, is beginning a major fund-raising campaign so that we can continue to support our existing charitable activities and develop new ways to support education in architectural glass art, design and conservation; and play a meaningful role in understanding our heritage through stained glass.

Celebration


We want to mark this important milestone with a special programme of social activities and visits especially for our members in the lead-up to 2028. We’re also planning exhibitions and developing projects to showcase architectural glass art to members and non-members alike and to explore the opportunities for using architectural glass to create welcoming environments.

Growing our Membership


Join our growing membership today and become part of one of the most diverse, welcoming and inclusive of London’s City Liveries. Membership of the Glaziers’ Company is open to all, and we welcome members with a wide range of backgrounds, including practising glass artists.
