Welcome
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:
"To make much better glass..." on Monday 18th April 2016 at The Wallace Collection, Manchester Square, LONDON W1U 3BN at 10:15 a.m.
2016 is the centenary of the founding of the Society for Glass Technology. To mark this event this study day aims to consider how people at different times have handled the need to make much better glass. Glass has always been a complex material and making much better glass has demanded, amongst other things: investment; organisational change; improved raw materials; glassmaker training and education; new processes; and new furnace technologies. The presentations will examine some transformational changes that occurred in glassmaking prior to 1930, identifying the key people and organisations that made these happen. 12 GBP for students, 24 GBP for members (AHG, Society for Glass Technology, or Friends of the Wallace Collection), or 34 GBP for non-members. Lunch is not provided.
