Come along and help us celebrate one of the most fascinating and diverse art forms around.
The Festival’s comprehensive Artist Programme brings together glass artists and enthusiasts from all over the world, offering them the chance to network and learn from their peers. World renowned glass makers travel to the area to pass on a wealth of knowledge and experience in their specialist fields. During the Festival, those with a keener interest in glass can attend lectures, demonstrations, workshops, symposia and trade fairs, whilst being inspired by the wealth of world class glass on display at numerous exhibitions, including the prestigious British Glass Biennale.
