 2024 sees the last International Festival of Glass to be held at the Ruskin Centre in Stourbridge.  The Contemporary Glass Society has been involved with the Festival since its inception. As our time at the Ruskin Centre comes to an end and we look forward to the next era of the Festival, let’s celebrate the amazing journey we have all had. 

 Memories are magical moments that we treasure so join us in our last Postcard Show at the Ruskin Centre and create a small treasure full of memories.

 This is a call out to all members of the Contemporary Glass Society to be part of a fantastic and fun fundraising show.  Our exhibition always gains a great deal of coverage with many pieces selling - your work could be bought and added to one of Britain’s leading collections!
