The Association for the History of Glass is an educational charity whose aims are to advance knowledge, education and interest in the study of glass of all periods of history throughout the world.
Our members' interests include archaeology, art history, conservation, museum studies, glass collection and glass science.

We publish a biannual newsletter Glass News and organise Study Days each Spring and Autumn, usually in London.

The next meeting of the Association will be:
Glass in imitation of other materials on Monday 7th November 2016 at The Institute of Archaeology, University College London, 31-34 Gordon Square, London WC1H 0PY.
The aim of this study day is to explore aspects of the use of glass in imitation of other materials. What purposes were behind this practice, and how was it achieved from a technical perspective? Which materials were mimicked, and how did this affect the value of the glass itself and the material it was imitating? What was the purpose of mimesis and imitation at different times?
For further details, please do contact Daniela Rosenow (DRosenow@britishmuseum.org) or Chloe Duckworth (cd227@le.ac.uk).
Lunch is not provided, but is available locally.
