Bandits of Glass


The Bandits of Glass will be bringing their exciting glass blowing demonstrations to Hillsfest.

Find them in the Bandits marquee.

The Bandits of Glass are a highly regarded glass blowing demonstrating team who specialise in bringing glass blowing to a wider audience via public events and festivals. Founded in the historic glass blowing quarter of Stourbridge in the West Midlands the collective have received wide acclaim for their fun and informative demonstrations.

They have developed and delivered specific glass blowing demonstrations to delight and intrigue the public, including the traditional dragon stem goblet, cooking with hot glass and their famous Tea pot demo. The bandits have taken part in the world record attempt for the longest continuous glass blowing demonstration so their stamina will not be found wanting, an important attribute during their high intensity performances.

These demonstrations increased public engagement and refreshed the traditional exhibition format, giving visitors a real insight into the effort and skill that went into creating the art on display.
