Book IFoG Masterclasses

Nine experts working across a variety of glass techniques will be hosting Masterclasses as part of the UK’s International Festival of Glass (IFoG) in August 2024 and bookings are now open.

The Masterclasses take place at either the Ruskin Glass Centre in Stourbridge, West Midlands, or at The Glass Foundry in Stroud, Gloucestershire (check each class for location details) over the four days of 19-22 August (immediately preceding the IFoG itself, which takes place in Stourbridge from 23-26 August). From traditional glass painting to laminated glass sculptures to stipple drawing with glass in 3D, there are classes to inspire all.

Each class costs £650, plus there is an optional evening event in Stroud for Masterclass participants to meet the class leaders over dinner and drinks (costing £29.50).
