If you want to meet the maker in the Valley known as the birthplace of studio glass, then climb on board with Robin Warden, art consultant and curator of the 2012 "History of Glass" and the 2018 "Sphere of Influence" exhibits. She'll lead groups (maximum of 10 persons) to 2-4 local glass studios on four Fridays in August. Full and half day tours; and each will feature up to four working glass artists at a studio and at least ONE glass-making demonstration (blown, fused, flame, slump ...functional, sculptural, whimsical ... something for everyone) on both the morning and afternoon tours. The countryside is as diverse as the artists with meandering mountain roads, rippling waters, and lush verdant fields all harboring the many tucked away studios. Just email or call to book a reservation.
