The Center is directed by glass artists–in–residence who offer a range of classes, including workshops for “first time fusers” to master classes for advanced artists. Classes include fusing, kiln casting, mosaics, jewelry,Venetian glass beadmaking, and stained glass. All classes are taught at the Arcade Building’s Art Glass Center Studio.
Blown glass instruction is presented by Glassworks, the resident glassblowing studio located in the Park’s historic Caretaker’s Cottage. Classes for novice students interested in learning the basics of glassblowing are offered as well as instruction for advanced students.
