Important Travel Information

There are currently roadworks in Stourbridge town center which means that access is restricted from the ring road arround Stourbridge. Please follow IFG (International Festival of Glass) diversion signs to the A491, then turn right and proceed south back towards the town center, turning right into canal street for the bead fair.

Following the success of our bead fairs in 2004 and 2005 GBUK will yet again hold a Glass bead fair, this year coinciding with the International Glass Bienial in Stourbridge.

We are therefore proud to announce details of our fair for 2006.

We will have...

  • Glass Artists
  • Suppliers
  • Bead challenge display
  • Demonstrations
  • Deli-Shus Catering

Once again some of the UK and Europe's leading bead artists will be showing and selling their latest work, together with bead and glass suppliers.

Exhibitor details are on the 'Glass Artists' and 'Suppliers' pages of this site.

Details of the Bead Challenge, Demonstrations and Catering can be reached from these links or the menu bar at the side.

GBUK stands for Glass Beadmakers UK which is a society whose members make glass beads or simply have an interest in the methods and processes of making glass beads. For more information and membership details visit

More information will be added to this site as I receive it, so please check back...
