One thing that we are lacking in the Triangle area of North Carolina is a glass studio – or so I’ve heard from friends who work in this medium. There are a handful within driving distance but not a lot of options locally.
Asheville is an artist’s haven with cheap studio space aplenty and amenities that are oftentimes lacking in less culturally prolific places.
It was neat to see the Asheville Glass Center a working glass studio and classroom. You can walk right in and observe artists working on their craft.
