The International Festival of Glass takes place every two years and is the only festival that celebrates glass in the UK.

The creative programme of activities combines the whole spectrum of glassmaking with other artforms to push boundaries and develop new opportunities, ideas and collaborations for makers, artists and performers. You can see high-quality exhibitions, international masterclasses, artist demonstrations and presentations with over 500 artists represented at each festival. There are plenty of workshops and hands-on activities to try yourself, plus lively entertainment and evening events.
