The Glass Fair@Knebworth Visual Arts


Leading specialist fair with around 70 exhibitors selling antique and collectable glass including makers showing their own work.

This prestigious event with around 70 exhibitors takes place in the Knebworth House Barns complex which provides the perfect ambience.
Knebworth House is set in its own deer park situated just off the A1M at J7( Stevenage) and is within striking distance of London and easily accessible from all other locations.
The fair showcases all types and ages of antique and contemporary glass.
Our exhibitors focus on bringing a great and varied selection of their most desirable and collectable items to the fair and, because they are specialists in their subject, visitors can be assured of benefiting from their experience and passion. Glass from all periods and genres will be offered for sale: from fine quality antiques to Continental high design; from retro collectables to pressed glass and paperweights; from jewellery to Georgian drinking glasses.
Contemporary studio glass is another field of great interest to collectors and is always well represented at our fairs by a number of highly skilled glass artists showing their own work, from hand blown cameo and graal pieces through to sculpture, kilnforming, engraving, pate de verre and lampwork.
We are also pleased to announce that Andy McConnell, author and T.V. celebrity, will be attending the fair signing copies of his latest book, ‘The Decanter Ancient to Modern’, which was published last November after 18 years in the making.
There will also be a glassblowing demonstration by E+M Glass which is a real treat for visitors. Regular visitors will already know what a stunning experience it can be to visit a glass fair but if you have not been before be prepared to be amazed at the breadth and diversity of what is on offer.
All of our exhibitors will be very happy to talk to visitors and answer any questions they might have about items on sale.
The fair is open from 10.30am until 4.00pm and admission is £5. Refreshments are available and there is free parking.
