On 17, 18 and 19 May 2019 there will be an unmissable opportunity for professionals and amateur glass fans alike…

Opening evening at 19.00 on 16 May 2019 in the espace Paulus, Bois du Cazier.

There will be 30 artists showcased at this first event.

Various techniques, including blowing, spinning, sculpture, pâte de verre, fusing and stained glass, will be represented, offering the public the chance to admire the huge diversity in shapes and colours as well as the sheer creative force that glass unleashes.

Visitors will receive a free 52-page catalogue.

Activities for children will be provided on the Saturday and Sunday from 10.00, run by the Cid-Grand Hornu educational team, tying in with the ‘Design Orienté Verre’ exhibition at Grand-Hornu from 19 February to 26 May 2019.

Children’s events are free, and there is no need to book.

More than just a salon, this Biennale aims to be a true glass-fest!
