HAND-MADE glass creations will be on display when the Creative Glass Guild of Queensland holds its annual exhibition in Mt Coot-tha this weekend (July 22-23).

Items, all made by Guild members, will include glass beads and jewellery, leadlight panels and Tiffany-style lamps, mosaic artworks and copper foil boxes, fused & slumped glass plates, vases, Christmas ornaments and objects d'art.

Many of the items will be available for sale.

Live demonstrations will be held throughout the weekend, and visitors can talk with glass artists and tutors about their work and the courses available through the Guild.

One active Guild member is Catja White of Bracken Ridge.

Ms White caught the glass bug when she was introduced to glass fusing while visiting her mother in Sweden.

She joined the Creative Glass Guild in 2008 as soon as she returned to Brisbane and has been an active member ever since.

She was awarded the People's Choice Award at the Guild's 2016 exhibition.

This year's exhibition will also feature raffles with glass work prizes, and a silent auction.

The exhibition runs from 9am-4pm on Saturday and Sunday in the Brisbane Botanic Gardens auditorium.

For more information contact Ian Dymock on 0407 328 608 or Amy Seibold on 0408 742 360.
