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 currently planning the eighth International Festival of Glass - please do check in for updates, sign up for our newsletter or follow us on Facebook or Twitter.
The 2021 festival will explore glassmaking in Korea, China and Japan.
Please do make contact if you are from these countries or have links or interesting projects - [email protected]
We look forward to meeting you in Stourbridge in August 2021 to celebrate one of the most fascinating and diverse art forms around.

The Festival would not be possible without our wonderful volunteers and we are always looking for people to join the team...
The International Festival of Glass takes place at venues across the Stourbridge Glass Quarter. Entry to all Festival venues is free, however some activities and events will have a charge.
