We were lucky enough to be asked to teach at a conference at Jilin University of the Arts in China in August. While there we taught students and professors from across China who had come to attend this 3 month government sponsored event. It was a incredible experience, from teaching these eager to learn students, seeing the facilities at the school and experience the history and beauty of this country. The images below are some of the few that capture this amazing experience. We love to travel but travelling with glass is the best - because we meet people who are as in love with glass as we are.

On cold winter days the glass studio is the best place to be. It is like taking a warm vacation while making something beautiful! We still have some room in our winter workshops. These classes range from 4 hour private classes that can be customized to your skill level or a full day workshop for beginners. For more information and to sign up check out our workshop page.
In our glassblowing workshops students have a chance to create something special of their own. There are some fun classes in the studio this fall - the dates are:
September 17/18th - Learn to Make Glass Pumpkins! - this is a beginner class
October 22/23 - A Halloween themed beginner class
November 12/13th - An intermediate Christmas themed class
We also offer gift certificates for workshops and gifts – perfect as a wedding or birthday gift.
