The Guild is installing plumbing to operate our Flame Shop safely for glass workshops. This will create more educational prospects for students and income opportunities for our artist instructors.
The majority of our students live in Lancaster County as well as our instructors. Our glass instructors bring their scientific knowledge of the discipline making it a true STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Art Math) project.
This studio makes possible varied educational classes including marbles, beads, ornaments, jewelry and more, and expands our workshop offerings for learners aged 12 and up.
