Ruskin Glass Centre, Stourbridge – new units for craft-related businesses
Thanks to funding from the European Regional Development Fund, Heritage Lottery Fund and Black
Country Local Enterprise Partnership, Ruskin Mill Land Trust (RMLT) has recently completed seven new work units on its Glasshouse site in Stourbridge (the former Webb Corbett/Royal Doulton glassworks).
The units, located in the new reception building and the former Acid House, range in size from 15 to 68 square metres and are available on attractive terms.
RMLT is looking for businesses that will complement the historic nature of the site and the existing commercial activity in the Ruskin Glass Centre (www.ruskinglasscentre.co.uk) to continue to develop this vibrant community and to provide valuable work experience for Glasshouse College students.

Another great fair opportunity for members. GBUK is holding a lampwork fair with free members’ tables as well as suppliers for lampworkers. The fair will be held on Saturday, September 19th, at Long Sutton Barns, PE12 9AF Please see the flyer for details. GBUK Fair Flyer
Members have the opportunity to sell their beads on the GBUK table at Flame Off.
We will have limited amount of space available on the stand for this. They will be taken on a first come, first served basis but anyone volunteering can have their own space (free of charge) to sell beads for the duration of their time on the stand. We will charge £2.50 per ‘slot’, a slot being a square compartment measuring 3 inches square and 1¼ deep. Members may ‘buy’ up to three of these for the duration of the two days. If you would like to take advantage of this, please bring your beads on the day.
This a great way to test your toes in the arena of selling your beads for those of you who have never tried before or those that do sell and would like to have some for sale at Flame Off without the expense of a stand.
