Welcome

The National American Glass Club, Ltd., is a non-profit educational organization for those interested in the study and appreciation of glass, of all types and periods.

The club's membership includes those from the professional glass world, such as antique dealers, museum curators and authors, as well as those from the general public who have an appreciation for glass as an art form. Through discussion, exploration, and identification, we are able to enjoy and understand the delicate art of glass making.

In 1933, when the club was originally formed in Boston, interest was in glass made primarily in the 1800s. Presently our group has 13 chapters nationwide with humdreds of members and our study of glass now includes that from the Roman times to the latest in contemporary studio glass.

Attention:

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic our meetings will be held virtually via Zoom. Members will be emailed meeting details a few days before each meeting.
If you have questions, please contact president@founderschapter.org.

Meetings

For the 2020-2021 year there are significant changes to the format and locations of our monthly meetings. Due to a combination of the Natick library's new room reservations policy, and, of course, the Covid-19 epidemic, the majority, if not all, of our programs will be held virtually this year. The most up-to-date information about where/when/what a meeting will be can be found by visiting www.founderschapter.org or writing to president@founderschapter.org. As the situation is constantly changing, we encourage you to contact us on a regular basis. Timely emails will also be sent out regularly to our members. If you would like to join our group, ensuring your receipt of our communications, please let us know.

Rest assured that our online programs will be fun and informative and that we will make the 'join the meeting' part of the process as simple and straightforward as possible. There are several glass groups that have already held very successful and enjoyable online meetings, so we anticipate success for us as well. We will have monthly meetings, including a 'visit' to a home collection, possibly an auction or two, a museum 'visit', and show-and-tell sessions, among other plans. By 2021 we hope to resume our in-person meetings, which are really the most fun of all.
