The Ruskin Glass Centre
Following a Ãâ£1.4m refurbishment, made possible thanks to funding from Advantage West Midlands, the site that once was home to the glass trade greats of Royal Doulton and Webb Corbett is continuing to help glassmakers thrive in Stourbridge. The extensive works has resulted in 17 independent businesses being located in the Centre, housing a range of glass craftspeople as well as other complementary businesses.
The Centre is free to go in, has disabled access and is open 7 days a week
Ruskin Glass Centre is home to a wide array of glass crafts; from live glassblowing, respected studio 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.
The Cafe that is located in the heart of the Centre has proven to be a hit amongst locals. With an ever changing menu customers can enjoy the very best in local produce prepared by Chef Chris Williams. Whether it is a cooked breakfast, a simple baguette, hot lunch or a slice of freshly baked Victoria sponge the quality of the food and the friendly service has kept customers coming back 7 days a week.
