Adult camps

Welcome to Glasstronomy Studios’ summer adult art glass camp program. Whether exploring a new technique, refreshing skills, or sampling the wonders of glass, this season's calendar offers something for everyone, whatever your aesthetic.

These sculptural, architectural, and pictorial projects each have opportunities for you to express your own creative sensibilities, whether contemporary, traditional, or somewhere in between.

Learn best practices in a safe and relaxing environment with hands on instruction, enjoy restorative lunches with fellow participants, and come away with a unique piece of glass art you will be proud to say, “I did it myself!”
