The Festival is a unique opportunity to see the most talented glass artists (include masterclass leaders), from the UK and overseas, demonstrate their glass making skills in a variety of techniques. Demonstrations will take place across all Festival venues over the four days of the Festival.
Celebrity Doodles, a British Glass Foundation project will see doodles from luminaries such as Robert Plant, Emma Thompson, Lenny Henry and Raymond Blanc, realised in glass by a team of talented glassmakers in demonstrations held throughout the Festival.
The Stourbridge area has been a major glassmaking centre for 400 years and there is still a thriving industry in Stourbridge today. During the Festival, the glass and craft artists based across the Quarter will be opening their studio doors: the award winning Broadfield House Glass Museum, one of the major glass museums in the world with its hot glass studio and selling exhibitions; Ruskin Glass Centre and Webb Corbett Visitor Centre home to 18 craft businesses with retail units to browse and an organic café; and Red House Glass Cone, one of only four cones left in the UK, with 12 craft studios, a hot glass studio and the Red Cone Coffee House.
