UK - A Window on Whitefriars - GA EVENT - 7TH JULY**

Post by Oxbridge Fairs on Mon May 14, 2012 2:11 am

The Glass Association is holding a special event in Cambridge on Saturday 7th July focusing on Whitefriars glass and featuring presentations by various well known speakers. Charles Hajdamach will set the scene and talk about the Harry Powell years, 1880-1920, followed by an interview with ex-Whitefriars glassblowers Ray Annenberg and Johnny King which will be conducted by Mark Hill.

After lunch, Brian Slingsby, who was technical director at Whitefriars, will speak about his time at the factory, followed by talks from Chris Morley and Willie Clegg. The day will culminate in a Question and Answer session.


Also open to non-members of the Glass Association, full details and a booking form can be found at http://www.cambridgeglassfair.com/Glass%20Association%20Event%200712.pdf

Glass Association events are well-regarded and known for being not only informative and interesting but also extremely sociable. They also represent very good value, with refreshments provided throughout the day including lunch.

This event will be the first time these particular speakers have come together to share their knowledge and talk about their experiences with Whitefriars glass and as such is a valuable opportunity to learn more about different aspects of the subject that so captivates all those interested in this most beautiful of collectables.

Most of the day will be filmed to record this important meeting for posterity, specifically the interview with Ray Annenberg.

We hope that you will be able to attend and ask that you book early to reserve your place.
