The 2015 programme will again feature a full daily schedule of lectures during the Public Festival. Although this aspect of the programme is of particular interest to the many glass artists and enthusiasts who visit the Festival, visitors without prior knoweldge of glass may find the lectures' content interesting. If you are unsure about any of the programme, simply visit the Festival Office at the Ruskin Glass Centre for assistance.

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.
