Margot James has welcomed the opening of Glasshouse College’s new £2.1 million Arts Centre. The refurbished glass factory includes a visitor centre detailing a history of the site and the practical steps in blowing glass, a large exhibition and performance room, and a reflections centre featuring testimonies of people who used to work at the factory.
Margot said: “This is a very exciting step for Glasshouse College and Stourbridge as a whole. The new Arts Centre provides fantastic facilities for students to learn and develop in, as well as a superb visitor centre that rightly celebrates Stourbridge’s famous glass heritage. I am delighted that the project has been completed successfully, and would like to pass on my congratulations to all those involved in the process.”
