International Festival of Glass 2019

International Festival of Glass 2019 – 23rd till 26th August 2019

Welcome to the 8th International Festival of Glass;  The Festival of Glass will take place across venues in Stourbridge Glass Quarter.

Since its inception in 2004 the Festival’s aim has been to celebrate and showcase the skill and innovation of the glass industry and makers, both historic and contemporary, local and international.

We are busy planning an exciting mix of lectures, workshops, exhibitions, taster sessions and family activities, as well as fantastic food and drink across the individual festival sites.

The theme will be PLACEMAKING

Placemaking is a design approach that puts people at the centre and develops a sense of belonging. Placemaking invites us to participate in creating our immediate environment and think about its sense of identity. This could be understood through a weekend of glassmaking or by reflecting how generations of skilled craftsmanship and industry have shaped a locality; an international artist installing a piece of public art or a local school pupil just starting on the journey of making. Placemaking explores how the spaces we create are influenced by the landscape, the climate and the diverse people around us.

The festival will engage with this theme in the widest sense through technology, science, and art and imagination,encouraging a culture of participation where anyone can join in.

We look forward to meeting you in Stourbridge in August 2019 to celebrate one of the most fascinating and diverse art forms around.

Stained Glass Saturday Workshop

On Saturday we held the last of this years ‘Day Workshops’ in stained glass.

There was a small group of students, both had been given the Saturday workshop as a birthday gift.

An enjoyable and relaxing morning was spent with an introduction to the craft and learning how to cut glass to a pattern.


After lunch in the Organic cafe, the afternoon was spent making their own panels. Both participants chose the same geometric design; but by choosing different coloured glass & textures, at the end of the day had made their own unique glass panel.

Students ‘End of Year’ Slideshow

Classes, Workshops and Courses 2012 to 2013

Its been a great year of workshops, classes and courses held at the studio.  It has been a mix of stained glass and fused glass and the standard of work has been very good.

Many of the students have returned to enrol on another course throughout the year and this shows from their high standard of craft skills and their unique designs.  I have put together a selection of photos of glasswork from the students and participants of the past year.
