About Us

Foundation & Aims

The Glass Association was founded in England in 1983 at the Stourbridge College of Art, and it is a registered charity (no. 326602). The association was established in order to promote the understanding and appreciation of glass and glass-making method: and to generally increase public interest in the whole subject of glass.

The Glass Association concerns itself with all types of glass, both historical and contemporary, and through its visits, meetings and publications, seeks to cater for a wide range of glass interests. Whether you are a collector of glass, an antique dealer, a museum curator, or you are involved in the making of glass, the Glass Association has something to offer.

In addition to our strong membership base in the UK, the association also has many overseas members prominent in the field of glass.

The Association is a voluntary organisation based at Broadfield House Glass Museum, located in the West Midlands (UK).
