IGMA Annual General Meeting - August 2016 Attendees of the Annual General Meeting met for breakfast on Sunday, before the doors of the Guild Show opened. President, Teresa Layman, explained the wonderful things that have happened in the Guild over the last 12 months.
There were 11 newly recognized Artisans and Fellows, 2 receivers of Study Grants and 2 School Scholarships issued.
It was also the appropriate time to recognize and praise the huge number of volunteers who help IGMA by presenting them with ‘voluntiaras’. Can you spot any familiar faces in the photo wearing their tiaras? An enjoyable time was had by all!
Please join IGMA at the next Annual General Meeting: September 25, 2017, at the Hartford Windsor Marriott.
2 IGMA Fellows and an Artisan taught 3-day classes in the historic Imperial College building, located in the museum district of London (the College is across the street from the Victoria & Albert Museum).
It was truly an international affair. Teachers Jamie Carrington and Geoff Wonnacott, from England, and Tine Krijnen, from The Netherlands, taught students from England and others from as far away as Canada, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland, Norway, and even a few participants traveled from the U.S. This event certainly highlighted the ‘International’ in "IGMA".
Many participants in the London classes later attended The Kensington Dollshouse Festival, which was held at the end of the week.
