Become a Member

Our members fuel one of the most influential and dynamic glass art communities in the United States. They make it possible for us to keep fire in our furnaces, to attract the world’s finest glass artists, to offer scholarships to deserving students, and to provide a level of glass art instruction available nowhere else in the region. Members are absolutely fundamental to our mission.

memberships extended

The furnaces are fired and we are open! Gradually we are offering more glass classes, workshops, exhibitions and exciting demonstrations. Since we were closed to the public for a while and our offerings are still limited, all memberships will be extended.
