Glass Circle Diary Dates - Outings



Recent past visits:

  Our last visit outside the UK was in May 2015 to the USA to visit the Henry Ford Museum Detroit, The Toledo Museum of Art, then almost 3 days - the highlight of the tour - at The Corning Museum and town, and Brooklyn NY for the Brooklyn Museum and the Metropolitan Museum New York - see our page 'Visits' for an article describing what was seen on the US tour.

  A recent trip abroad (April 2016) was organised by The Glass Association for members of the Glass Association and the Glass Circle to Barcelona and Catalunya.

 In September 2017 a joint gathering by the Glass Circle and the Glass Association took place in Ipswich and Thorpeness to visit Christchurch Mansion Museum, the home of an important collection of 18th and 19th century glass, and afterwards the collection of a Glass Circle member. In 2018 visits have been made to the Fitzwilliam Museum Cambridge and to a private collection in Suffolk.

 The next visit abroad is likely to be to Italy in May 2019.
