Glassworking

The Craft Center's Glass studio is the spot for all your glass working needs. With different specialties, such as the Flameworking Shop, Hot Shop, Fusing/Slumping Shop, and the Cold Shop, you will be well on your way to creating an array of beautiful, glass objects.

Glass working can be challenging to learn. It is hot, very physical, and not without the risks of burns or cuts. Anyone capable of working safely and properly as determined by Craft Center Staff may access the glass studio.

• Participants are required to adhere to all workshop guidelines and assume all risks, and have a willingness to work in a safe, cooperative manner.

• The Craft Center is an educational facility, not a production shop.

 • The Craft Center maintains a strict policy against the making of drug paraphernalia.

• The Craft Center reserves the right to refuse service to anyone not meeting the basic use requirements.

No access to the Hot Glass studio outside of scheduled workshops.

  • Fusing kilns
  • Stained Glass Tools & Equipment
