The 2015 programme will again feature a full daily schedule of lectures during the Public Festival. In 2012 the lecture programme included the role of Women in Stourbridge Glassmaking; The early years of the Bullseye Glass Factory in America; and Glassmaking and Buddhism. Individual artists, including the various Masterclass leaders, also gave insights into their work. Visit IFG 2012 for a full lecture list.
Typically the majority of lectures are located at the Ruskin Glass Centre and are free to attend (with a Festival Pass). However, where indicated when the programme is released, certain lectures will be ticketed and/or located at one of the other Festival Venues.
