Help us build our Fusing and Flameworking Studios

Do you want to learn how to flamework, slump and fuse glass? 


We have been searching high and low for equipment and tools to create both a fusing studio and a flameworking studio. One of our dear friends is retiring her glass jewelry business and has offered to sell some glass, torches, and kilns to us for a very reasonable price.  Our goal is to have a 6 station flameworking studio for teaching and renting.  The fusing studio will have two tables and will be able to accommodate classes of 16 students ( we will offer free classes to local school groups ages 6 and up).  We are so thrilled and thankful for the donations that we have received so far from RISD and other glass shops. 


Any donations to BRGC go right back into the studio meaning we put everything we have into the community so everyone can have the opportunity to learn and create.  Thank you for helping us create Rhode Islands only Community Glass School. 

 These items will help us launch our soon-to-be glass flameworking and flat glass studios. For those of you who have wanted to donate in the past, please know that this is an amazing opportunity to help grow Rhode Island's only Public Glass School.

Thank you all for being part of this vision. It is so wonderful to see so many people return again and again to learn more about the wonderful and mysterious super cooled liquid known as Hot Glass. You are all appreciated and adored! We will be picking up our new equipment on Friday so stay tuned....
