The focus for Gathering XXIV is Breaking Tradition which echoes the revision of our mission statement and supports our extended creative community outreach. It invites both a well-rounded, broad range of artistic style, and multi-media interpretation for workshops and presentations. Our instructors and presenters will bring strong, creative content to educate and inspire conference attendees by sharing ideas and knowledge in the diverse traditions of the art of glassworking techniques, complementary mediums, professional development, and business education.

What is the Gathering?

The International Society of Glass Beadmakers (ISGB) holds an annual conference to bring together an international community of glass bead artists and enthusiasts. The conference, called The Gathering, is an occasion to become involved in the glass world and make valuable contacts. 

There are a wide variety of events at the conference to satisfy many interests. It is an opportunity for attendees to network with each other, gallery owners, collectors, technical vendors and suppliers.  It also gives technical vendors an opportunity to showcase new equipment, tools, supplies, and glass. Through demonstrations, lectures, panel discussions, and more attendees can learn new techniques and business skills to further their glass bead knowledge.

Registration is open to all, however being a member of the ISGB gives you the opportunity to participate in early registration.
