BSMGP presents a webinar with Alfred Fisher

This year the British Society of Master Glass Painters (BSMGP) marks its centenary. As part of its celebrations in this significant year, glass artist Alfred Fisher MBE FMGP will present a webinar entitled ‘Fifty Years of the Master Glass Painters and Much More’.

Alfred Fisher will be speaking about his many years of working with stained glass and his memories of some of the characters from the BSMGP’s history in a webinar presentation on Friday 12 March 2021 at 7pm (UK time).

He has produced stained glass windows of the highest order for over six decades, and his legacy of work can be found in some of the most prestigious buildings in the UK, including Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, Chequers and the Guildhall.

Alf began his career at Whitefriars Studio in the 1950s, where he was an early pioneer of fusing glass for architectural settings and became their last Chief Designer before co-founding Chapel Studio with Peter Archer in 1973.

He is a past Chairman and Honorary Secretary of the BSMGP and is currently Vice-President. He will talk about some of the people he recalls from 60 years ago and their influences on his own work, from Erwin Bossanyi to John Piper and John Hutton.

Tickets are limited and cost £5. Book via this link.
