Open Day at the Red House Glass Cone

Small businesses on-site at the Red House Glass Cone in Wordsley are inviting visitors from near and far to come along and see what they have to offer at an open day on Saturday 10 February.

Organised by business owners with the support of Brierley Hill and Wordsley South ward councillors, Adam Davies and Wayne Little, the Open Day is being billed as a great chance for visitors to pop along and find out about the range of products and crafting workshops available at the site throughout the year.

Studios will be open from 11am till 4pm across the site, and there will be lots to see and do. Cllr Davies said: “Everyone knows the Cone, but for those who haven’t been on-site before they might not know about the fantastic hub of small businesses and crafting studios that are based here all year round." 

Cllr Little added: “These small businesses are on our doorstep and all still open while the improvement works at the Cone take place – so we hope lots of people will come along and support the event.”

“That’s why we’re working with Carly and the other businesses to organise this Open Day – inviting people from near and far to come along and see what’s on offer.”

Glass Quarter Designs have a suncatcher workshop, and I Luv Pebbles, based in the Courtyard, will be running ‘paint a pet pebble’ classes for kids. Kirk Andrews Art will be showcasing their work, also in the Courtyard, and Elliot at Blowfish Glass has interactive glass blowing experiences making glass fruit, which can be pre-booked through their website. 

Saz’s Ceramics & Crafts will be holding a pop-up ‘make and take’ experience with their ceramics pens, priced at £5 per item, and delivering a clay hand building demonstration. Tandem Crafts will be sharing a story time session in their studio, followed by craft time. Carly Grandini-Williams, General Manager at Saz’s Ceramics & Crafts, said:

“It is going to be a great opportunity for family & friends to come along to the Cone and see all the incredible skills of our independent artists, and have a go at an activity too.” 

The Museum and visitor centre shop, which are free to visit, is also open 7 days a week and staff are on hand to help answer any questions about the restoration work underway at the site.

Visitors are welcome to bring along picnics and beverages, with plenty of outdoor seating canal side and in the main studio area. There is also seating available in the Courtyard, and people are also encouraged to use the education room located next to the site gift shop. Various eateries, pubs and cafes are also within walking distance of the Red House Glass Cone.
