Annual General Meeting
The Association holds its Annual General Meeting in the Autumn of each year, usually in London, linked to a study day or conference.

Study Days and Other meetings
Each year the Association holds two day meetings usually in Spring and Autumn, with a programme of papers from invited speakers on a topical theme.



Study Day - Hot from the Furnace Mouth: How Practical Glassmaking Supports Glass History
Project Workshops, Quarley, Hampshire, SP11 8PX
10.15 - 17.00, 2nd November 2018
35GBP for AHG members, 50GBP for non members (includes a year's free membership) and 25GBP for students.
This unusual study day will be held at the workshop of 'The Glassmakers' at Project Workshops, Quarley, Hampshire. It is designed to give delegates a rare opportunity to watch hot glassmaking that is thought to be 'representative' of historic practice. In this environment we can then consider how the knowledge gained from such work supports the development and communication of glass history. It is hoped the day will appeal equally to those with little experience in the field and those with a lot. The glass workshop will only accommodate 16 visitors at a time, but 'mirror-image' programmes can be arranged if there is sufficient interest, making a maximum of 32 people. Book early to avoid disappointment!
