  • Please start your annealer load at the very back of the available space and load pieces as close together as possible.
  • Glass is included.   If you become a heavy user of glass we will start making an additional glass charge.
  • Glassmakers/renters must supply their own color, safety apparel, blow hoses.  Feel free to bring your own tools (please make sure they are labeled so there is no confusion).
  • Cost is $50/hour for hot shop time for the small glory hole, studio time with an assistant is $75/hour (maximum 2 glassmakers), studio time with instruction is $100/hr (maximum 2 glassmakers)

  • $30/hour for cold working time (no increments), $45/hour with an assistant until deemed ready to work alone.
  • Cold Shop must be clean when finished.  All disks and belts put up and water emptied.  Equipment turned off and wiped down


  • Available Rental Hours are Thursday – Sunday 10 am – 5 pm
  • If you have not worked in our studio before a 30-minute competency “test” is required for rental.
  • Everyone who works in our studio or cold shop must read & sign our online safety waiver.
  • Rental time can be scheduled on a regular basis.  However, we reserve the right to change your schedule should we have to reserve the time for a group event.  We will notify you as early as possible when this happens.
  •  We need a two hour notice for glory hole rental to ensure the hole is hot!

We love having you in the studio and look forward to seeing you soon.

Happy glass blowing!
