Glassblowing Studio Rental

The GEP hosts one of the only hot shops in the world which uses landfill gas as an alternative fuel to heat the glory holes.

Our contemporary glass studio is available for rent on an hourly, daily or weekly basis to qualified glass artists. Using landfill gas allows us to offer professional quality working studios at a very reasonable cost.
