The Hot Glass Art Center in Marlborough, NH is for anyone who has a passion for glass art and arts education: students... teachers... renters... artists.
Hot glass is a traditional medium that celebrates all that is right in our society: Collaboration, trust, teamwork, timing, creativity, and community. We support arts education as a means to bring people together.
At the Hot Glass Art Center our mission to create a teaching and learning space focused on hot glass outside the traditional system for Arts Education. Glassblowing is a true team endeavor. There is a scene and a sense of happening when around hot glass. The facility is already a community arts center for people interested in art, glass or being part of something greater than themselves. We offer classes, workshops and rentals available for all levels of glass enthusiasts.

Meet the Crew
Our diverse team offers a well-rounded experience for the beginner and the accomplished glass blower. Our crew expands beyond the people who are teaching and producing work on a regular basis. Our guest teachers, renters and artists complete the bigger picture of why we are well rounded as a facility in hot glass. Our students also complete our team, without them we’d have a lot less fun in the shop. Together we've created a scene worth celebrating….
