North Carolina Glass Center

Maker: Other Maker

The North Carolina Glass Center is a non-profit, public access glass studio and gallery. We are dedicated to education, exploration, and collaboration in all forms of glass. Our low-cost shared studios help emerging artists launch their careers. Our furnaces, torches, and kilns enable established glass artists to pursue new and ambitious challenges. Our gallery showcases the finest work from undiscovered to established glass artists in Western North Carolina. Our educational programs provide thousands of aspiring glass art students with high quality, affordable instruction. And our community outreach programs provide safe spaces for veterans and low income youth to learn the science and art of glass. These classes help participants express themselves in a positive, non-verbal manner while also building confidence and healthy coping skills.
