Welcome to Samantha Smith Elementary School’s Explore Art Blog!

Fresh from our Glass Training taught by the amazing Nancy Colburn, I wanted to share with you some other resources and opportunities to practice your fused glass techniques or take them to another level with glass blowing!

Cascade Glass Art Center, Redmond, WA
Located near Ben Franklin Crafts, Cascade Glass is a great place to buy your own glass, take classes, and work on your own fused glass projects in their studio workshops.

Redmond School of Glass, Redmond WA
Tucked near Pomegranate in Redmond, this is a glass blowing studio. You may sign up for 6 week classes, or participate in one-time workshops to make vases, bowls, ornaments, or pumpkins!

Uptown Glassworks, Renton, WA
This studio combines glass blowing, fused glass, and other techniques for either a one-time workshop, classes, or if you’re serious, accreditation through Renton  Technical College.
