In case you missed this over the weekend...
When you pick up the September issue of @thedevilstrip magazine you will see a beautiful glass pumpkin being made in our studio! Thanks for the great article Ken Evans and photos HL Comeriato! One correction however, Jack Baker studied at Kent's Steinert Glass School not Canada's Rudolph Steiner college! Got to love talk to text 😆

Akron’s Hottest Destination!

Located in a beautiful old church on the corner of Crouse and Spricer streets (and just a few doors down from Don Drumm Studios and Gallery) is a very unique business. Akron Glass Works is a hot glass studio where local artists make glass gifts, art, and decor on site and sell them in their gallery. Since everything is handmade, items change with the seasons and holidays. You can find fabulous gifts for your friends and family or pick up something special for your self. Akron Glass Works also offers glassblowing and glass fusing workshop experiences for beginners.

Well worth the trip up
Had fun today at the Hot Glass Jam! Thank you for this event! Picked up one of your awesome new t-shirts (so I can wear it when I come to make my second fish 😁) and my stepdaughter got to make a flower!
Had so much fun here today making fish! The guys are so patient and explained everything so well. Even if you do something stupid, they don’t make you feel stupid. 😂 The fish were more involved than the pumpkins I made here before and I loved learning new techniques. I can see how this would be addicting! This place is such a gem. If you’ve never tried a workshop, DO IT!! You won’t regret it!
We had our wedding there in August 2019 and it was perfect! We had about 50 people and used the Sanctuary space for both the ceremony and the reception. There are rooms for the bride and groom to get ready in, and an area off the kitchen that we used for food set-up. The owner (Jack) and venue staff were very helpful with set up and clean up. The space is naturally beautiful with the church-look and stained glass, and can be decorated however you want. The owner and team also provided some additional decorative trees and a glass-blowing show for our guests downstairs, which was set up with high-top tables for cocktail hour. It was overall a very pleasant experience, the space and the people were amazing and we had a perfect wedding! Thank you to our wonderful photographer Everett Jade Photography, LLC for the beautiful pictures ❤️💐
Thanks to my instructor Christian. A great class. I love marbles. This class was fantastic. We are so fortunate to have Akron Glass Works and glass artists in our midst. Sign up for a class that interests you... get a friend to join you. Or just look at the beautiful glass for sale. Great birthday present. Thanks Gail.
When this is all over & done, Go to Akron Glass Works & have some Fun! They'll help you make beautiful glass and have you laughing like this ridiculous ass!
Jake and Neal were fabulous instructors! Thanks for providing such a wonderful experience on Sunday, making paper weights! We love how ours turned out!!!
Baby Jack loves his snowman made for him by Jack! Thanks Jack! 👍🏻🎁❤️🤗👶🏼🎄 Merry Christmas!
Great time making pumpkins today!
So fun!
I can't wait for our ornaments to be ready!! Love this place.
We enjoyed our visit and our chat this morning when we stopped in! Please let us know if you are making fused glass cardinals!!! We will be back soon :) In the meantime I got a new tree and snowman :)
