The Worshipful Company of Glaziers and Painters of Glass has announced that once again it will offer an Award for Excellence and two Ashton Hill Awards for the year 2017-18. The deadline for entry is Friday, 21st April 2017.
These awards are training work placement awards for those within the first five years of completing their stained glass training, intending to undertake a long term career in stained glass. Recipients will be placed in high-quality working studios undertaking mentored work with the guidance of experienced professionals. The 10-week Ashton Hill Awards are aimed at those wishing to develop their glass conservation and/or painting skills. The Award for Excellence is a 40-week work experience program providing individual tuition tailored to the needs and interests of the award winner. The aim of all the Glaziers’ Company’s awards is to raise standards of work within the craft, particularly in the U.K., by offering additional learning experiences to enhance the skills of our craft workers.
As previously announced, the Glaziers’ Company is also offering two Continuing Professional Development Awards, for practitioners with at least five years’ working experience to broaden their professional skills, whether by moving towards the attainment of accredited status as conservators, or by developing their creative skills. The deadline for applications for these awards is Tuesday, 31st January 2017.
