The International Festival of Glass is Offering Four Discount Masterclass Places for Glass Students

The International Festival of Glass is offering four discounted Masterclass places to glass students

The Masterclasses take place across four days and are taught by world renowned glass artists in a variety of glass making techniques.
The International Festival of Glass is offering four places with a 50% discount (valued at £325). You will need to cover the other £325 and your travel and accommodation costs.

Some classes are suitable for beginners so you can learn new glass skills or expand your knowledge (please check the descriptions for information).
Criteria: You must be currently studying on a glass course or have been accepted onto a course starting this autumn. International students are also welcome to apply.

The International Festival of Glass follows on immediately after the Masterclasses from the 23-26 August so you may want to stay around to enjoy the Festival too. We welcome students as volunteers.

When: 19-22 August 2024

Where: Ruskin Glass Centre, Stourbridge, West Midlands or The Glass Foundry, Stroud, Gloucestershire. (Please note that the Masterclasses are taking place across two different sites but the glass festival takes place in Stourbridge).
