Mini-Roadshow: Glass with Andy McConnell

Mini-Roadshow: Glass with Andy McConnell

Join renowned glass authority, Andy McConnell (BBC's Antiques Roadshow fame) for an entertaining afternoon of insights into this mesmerising material. In show-and-tell style, Andy will identify and demystify a selection of historic glass objects.

A specialist glass dealer, Andy runs Britain's largest antique and vintage glass shop, Glass Etc., together with his wife Helen in the Sussex seaside town of Rye. He has also lectured and published widely on the subject and was the first glass specialist recruited to BBC TV's Antiques Roadshow. This event coincides with the exhibition GLASS: art design architecture at QUT Art Museum, and is supported by JamFactory and QUT Institute for Future Environments.

Andy McConnell is a keynote speaker at QUT IFE and The University of Queensland supported event, The Australian Microbeam Analysis Society (AMAS) 14th Australian Microbeam Biennial Symposium 6 – 10 February 2017.
