Save the Date: January 16 and 17, 2015
Join us in our new location for a weekend of festivities celebrating our move to the new arts district in Franklinton! Our grand reopening features workshops and demos by glass master Bill Gudenrath, as well as demos by our own talented artists and an exhibition by renowned artist Esther Ruiz. Please join us for the festivities, light refreshments, and glass performances.
Bill Gudenrath breaks the mold when it comes to glassblowers as he chooses to work entirely solo. Watching him work is to see the impossible made to look elegantly graceful and simple.
