Welcome to the sixth International Festival of Glass
Held every two years across August and September, the International Festival of Glass is the UK's only festival celebrating the spectacle and diversity of glassmaking.
The Festival hosts or is partner to over 80 exhibitions, events, workshops and lectures, culminating in its renowned four day Public Festival across the August Bank Holiday weekend.
In 2010 we welcomed over 13,000 people to the Stourbridge Glass Quarter and 2012, a year that marked the 400 anniversary of glassmaking in Stourbridge and 50 years of studio glassmaking worldwide, saw approximately 20,000 visits to individual sites.
We are busy putting together a fantastic programme of activities for you and hope that you will come and enjoy these with us next year. To be kept up to date as the 2014 programme develops, please join the Mailing List. To gain inspiration from last year's Festival visit IFG 2012
