Hmmm. Summer is over. The Olympics are over. The month of routine maintenance in our glassblowing studio is finished. So what’s next?
Well, after a couple of days at the beach, it is time to look forward. It is a time to assess our overall success. What works, what needs improvement, and how do we improve. What can we do to provide a fresh, unique, and enriching experience for all that come through our doors?
We offer a variety of aesthetic goodies for all tastes. There is a studio showroom filled with warm & hot glass art. There are two other gallery venues for the “armchair enthusiast.” We provide glass blowing demonstrations that are open to the public for individuals and then for groups; we can do a demo or a Make a Something event. There are educational experiences in the form of our demo/tour event, glass blowing experiences, glass blowing weekend workshops, as well as our six-week sessions to learn how to blow glass. The demo, studio tour, and discussion about the history of glass and its place in today’s society are great for field trips, social clubs, and large groups. We can do a demo, and a Make a Something Event for smaller groups, where everyone who wants to gets to make glass.
Glassblowing is a team sport. We offer “team-building” opportunities to demonstrate how working together can provide optimal results; integrating and maximizing different potentials makes the effects stronger. And for the all-out hardcore glass enthusiast, we offer a line of six-week sessions for glass blowing that build on one another in a logical progression.
If you can think of other things that we can do, please give us your ideas. “Enriching lives through artistic self-expression” is more than just a “catchphrase” for us; it’s what we believe and want to achieve.
And remember, don’t just sit there, make something!
