Women’s International Glass Workshop

The Women’s International Glass Workshop is a group of contemporary glass artists. Every two or three years, the group meets to exhibit and experience a host country. Meetings have taken place in Iceland, Wales, Ireland, Austria, Japan, Canada, USA, New Zealand and Australia. In 2008, the Workshop celebrated its twentieth anniversary with a major touring exhibition, ‘Gathering Light’, in Liverpool, Chartres, and in Swansea, where it attracted 60,000 visitors to the National Waterfront Museum.
