Featuring exhibitions, classes and performances of 400 demonstrating artists, teachers, musicians and performers in all kinds of arts and crafts, including many leading glass-makers.
Opening times: 10.00am - 5.30pm

The Contemporary Glass Society is thrilled to be taking part in this fabulous four day arts extravaganza on 17th – 20th July 2014. The event is definitely a highlight of the UK’s arts calendar; 25,000 visitors visit the Oxfordshire site over four days to learn, buy and enjoy, exhibitions, classes and performances of 400 demonstrating artists, teachers, musicians and performers. As you would expect CGS’ stand will be at the heart of the Glass activity, situated in the glass marquee alongside the demonstration stage.

Do make sure you come and see us as we are holding a Free Prize Draw. Each day one lucky person will win one of four exquisite pieces of work from our members, so, if you are going to Art in Action then make sure the CGS stand is top of your list to be in with a chance.
