Join this mass participation project to celebrate the fused glass community across the UK and internationally. The Amblecote Wordsley Methodist Church will be adorned by a huge stretch of glass bunting made up of flags contributed by hundreds of fused glass makers from around the world and a photo gallery and message from those who have contributed on the theme ‘Glass for Good’.  It’s hoped to set a new world record with the total length of bunting. New pieces will be made and added throughout the festival.

Join in

Anyone involved in the creation of fused glass is invited to donate a flag to be added to a string of bunting displayed around the premises. 

Contributors will also be invited to electronically submit a photo of themselves and their flag - with brief details of themselves and their location and a few words on the topic “Glass for Good”.  These will form a photo gallery celebrating the breadth of the fused glass community.

Contributions are particularly welcomed from groups such as schools and colleges.

For details of how to submit bunting please contact Rev'd Rachel Parkinson at and follow on Twitter @GlassBunting

Contributions are accepted on the basis that they will not be returned.  The bunting will be available to other organisations wanting to display it, providing they are responsible for picking up and returning it.  Ownership will remain with Rachel Parkinson on behalf of the Methodist Church until disposal.  The bunting will ultimately be sold in aid of charity or donated to venues with a community purpose.  No profit will be made from the sale of any part of the bunting.
