North Carolina Glass Center is dedicated to education, exploration, and collaboration in all forms of glass.
The North Carolina Glass Center is a non-profit, public access glass studio and gallery. Our low-cost shared studios help emerging artists launch their careers. Our furnaces, torches, and kilns enable established glass artists to pursue new and ambitious challenges. Our gallery showcases the finest work from undiscovered to established glass artists in Western North Carolina. Our educational programs provide thousands of aspiring glass art students with high quality, affordable instruction. And our community outreach programs provide safe spaces for veterans and low income youth to learn the science and art of glass. These classes help participants express themselves in a positive, non-verbal manner while also building confidence and healthy coping skills.
NCGC provides a studio for everyone who is inspired to learn. Whether you are a student touching glass for the first time or an experienced maker looking to refine your skills, we have a space for you!
