This institution serves multiple purposes. Here, within 25,000 square feet of studio space, are a 550-pound tank of hot molten glass and a pre-Civil War press. At Glassworks, the sister school to the Louvre Museum of Decorative Arts, established glasswork artists and master printmakers display their work in the on-site gallery and teach classes in glass blowing, kiln-fired glass, hand-engraved printmaking, papermaking, and bookbinding. Absolutely unique to the area, the place is worth a visit during gallery hours. Daily glass-blowing and fusing demonstrations are open for viewing. Beginning in October, visitors may design their holiday ornaments.
