The Guild of Glass Engravers

The Guild of Glass Engravers was founded in 1975 by a small group of British engravers who were keen to establish a professional body for this art form. Laurence Whistler was invited to be the first President and John Hutton the first Vice President. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother graciously consented to become Patron.

Granted charitable status in 1993, (Registered Charity Number 1016162) the primary aims of the Guild are to promote the highest standards of creative design and craftsmanship and to promote the craft as a means of recreation and rehabilitation.

The Guild always welcomes new members who have, or wish to develop, an interest in glass engraving. There are four categories of membership. Lay members may or may not practise engraving. Craft Members, Associate Fellows and Fellows attain these grades of membership through assessment and election within the Guild.
