Open Studio

Silo Glass Studio and Gallery is offering Open Studio hours for experienced fusers (or Fusing 101 equivalent). We sell glass, supplies, and tools. Come play in the studio, use our composition / classroom workspace with basic tools and supplies. Elissa or Pippa will be around to assist you. Firing and cold shop are separate.


Materials- Bring or purchase your glass and accessory glass (frit, stringers, dichro, etc.) as these items are not included. Scrap glass is sold by the pound at $10 or $15 in the studio. All glass is Bullseye 90 COE.
