Spring Fair at Ruskin Glass Centre this weekend

Many of the onsite businesses are gearing up for a busy weekend as it is the Spring Craft Fair at Ruskin Glass Centre this weekend. Located on Wollaston Road in Amblecote, Stourbridge.
In addition to the 17 independent businesses on site there are a number of craft stalls on offer all weekend. Whether it is a day out for the family or to buy a special Mothers Day gift there will be something for everyone.
Handmade jewellery is proving to be a popular trade that will be at the Craft Fair, from semi-precious stones to fused glass. The Craft Fair will also be a home to the shortlisted Jewellery Maker of the Year 2010 for this weekend only.
Furnaces are charged in preparation for glassblowing demonstrations throughout the weekend. Vic Bamforth of Stourbridge Glassblowing Studio said today; ‘We are really looking forward to the weekend, especially having the opportunity to demonstrate our work to some new faces’. In addition to the glass demonstrations there will also be local Woodturner transforming pieces of local wood into delicate utensils whilst the public watch.
Ruskin Glass Centre is home to a wide array of glass crafts; from glassblowing studios, respected glass artists, engravers, glass decorators, and glass repair specialists to the diverse yet complementary trades of furniture design, handmade soap, textiles, photography, printing and publishing.
Ruskin Glass Centre Spring Craft Fair is 10:00am until 4:00pm, Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th March 2011
