This event is open until 23 July 2022, with contemporary glass presented in the beautiful, Victorian building that houses the Craft Centre & Design Gallery, located close to Leeds city centre.

The show is part of a number of celebratory events this year, with the CGS marking its 25th anniversary and the Craft Centre & Design Gallery reaching 40 years.

Florence Hoy, Director of the Craft Centre & Design Gallery, Leeds said, “As it’s a very special anniversary for both of us this year … and it’s the International Year of Glass, we jumped at the chance of this fantastic opportunity to bring some outstanding glass to the city of Leeds, and to give it the spotlight it so rightly deserves.”
