Glass Sellers’ CGS Glass Prize and New Graduate Review, 2021

Glass Sellers’ CGS Glass Prize and New Graduate Review, 2021

CGS is pleased to announce the launch of the 2021 Graduate Prize and New Graduate Review. We are delighted this year that the Worshipful Company of Glass Sellers of London Charity Fund have helped fund the Prize and Review together with Professor Michael Barnes MC FRCP

As we emerge from an exceedingly difficult year, CGS wish to support graduates at the beginning of what we hope will be a long career in glass making.
