The Studio features a furnace capable of melting 560 pounds of glass, three glory holes for reheating glass objects as they are being formed, five annealing ovens that slowly cool molten glass to room temperature and support mold-cast glasswork and fusing, and a flameworking table with space for eight artists to work on projects including beadmaking and sculpture using glass rods and tubes. Audio-visual equipment enhances guests' ability to see free glass demonstrations by our Studio Team, assistants, and artists-in-residence.

  • We took the stained glass class today and loved it! Our instructors Pat and Devan were both welcoming, informative, and super patient with us in our first time working with glass. It was tons of fun and you get to take your pieces home the same day. Thanks for the great experience!
  • I took the Stain Glass, Sun Catcher class. The class size was small, with lots of one on one time with knowledgeable, and fun instructor. Great value for a fun day.
