Eurythmy West Midlands Campus

The Location

Eurythmy West Midlands (EWM) is based at the Glasshouse Arts Centre in Stourbridge, near Birmingham, in the heart of England.

This Arts Centre – with which we collaborate – is situated on the campus of the Glasshouse College, a Ruskin Mill Trust college for young people with learning difficulties and other special needs. This social enterprise offers a vibrant life of craft activities and cultural artistic events, which take place in the Ruskin Glass Centre and the refurbished Furnace Theatre of the Arts Centre (300 seats).

In Stourbridge one can find Elmfield School, a long-standing Steiner-Waldorf School, a Christian Community church, Elysia Therapeutic Centre and other social ventures.

From Stourbridge the bordering countryside of Worcestershire, Shropshire and Wales is within easy reach, including the towpaths of the extensive canal system in the area. The cultural life of Birmingham is a 25-minute train ride away; Shakespeare’s Stratford for day-trips.

The Venue

For the Eurythmy training there are three studios available, as well as the theatre for rehearsals and performances.

Our students are able to join the (biodynamic and organic) College lunches for a specially reduced fee. Free hot drinks are always available. For any extra treats the café and organic shop in the Ruskin Glass Centre offers ample choice.

Help is offered for new students to find accommodation within the local community.

Activities at home and abroad

Eurythmy has been welcomed within this community from the start of Glasshouse College in 2000. In addition to Eurythmy Therapy, EWM contributes to the College life: regular contributions to festivals, joint projects with the Drama Department, and our own fairytale productions. Through this outreach activity, Eurythmy students – seen as role models – already gain experience in the social art of eurythmy. From this centre, the Eurythmy Stage Group working on contemporary relevant programmes, tours other Ruskin Mill centres and venues in Britain as well as public venues throughout Europe.

The Faculty

Maren Stott and Rita Kort are the main Eurythmy tutors at the Eurythmy West Midlands campus. Together with a range of other professionals they provide the four-year Vocational Training in Eurythmy and other activities, which Eurythmy UK offers.
